Default Chiappa Marlin Mountie clone?

Have yall seen these? Bumped into on in a pawn shop the other day. Not too shabby for a $350 22 cal levergun. Had nice case hardened frame and decent bluing. Wood was plain but for the price what can you expect?

Anyone got to shoot one?

Chiappa is an Italian company, that uses alot of different submanufacturers. They have definitely turned out alot of junk.

If their is a problem with the rifle, such as feeding, firing or ejecting, then good luck on getting it fixed. And, good luck finding parts.

Pass it by. There are just too many other good rifles out there.

$350 isn't a small amount of money. There are lots of good used rifles out there for that. And, there is always a Henry.

Appearances can be deceiving.......................

The stock wood is Beech; the receiver is not CCH steel, it's chemically-colored aluminum alloy, the front sight is integral with the forward barrel band, which surrounds the muzzle.


I've split my Marlin 39a's receiver (takedown) many, many, times - but I suspect that the aluminum alloy receiver won't stand up to much of that.


I pass........ especially since I've recently bought used Marlin 39a's in excellent condition for about the same $$$.


I'd rather have the real deal.
