Default Chiappa Little Badger, .22lr Pack Rifle



Advertise Here

Neat little concept.

Fairly low cost and has some solid features. Pretty sure that I would remove the forend and replace it with a few wraps of paracord. The stock could use some mods to hold gear. The real nice thing is the 16.5" folded length which fits in a very wide variety of packs. It also appears to be a fairly robust build and the trigger in the video appears to be pretty light.

For another 1.7 pounds you can get a Browning semi auto takedown 22 and have some back up shots. Its ugly and heavy for a single shot. For a pound more a ruger take down 22. Dont know much about tje ruger but taking down the browning is beyond easy. A small switch and a twist and its apart. Im sure i could shave off some weight too and get it close.

I read that they will be below $200 (depending upon the current market of course). It is the kind of firearm you can leave in a bag or truck forever and not thin twice about it.

I think it sound interesting. As another user posted I would remove that handguard. I may keep the top rail for a scope, but who knows

I would also file away the rail behind the receiver. Why in the heck there is one there I have no clue, but I feel it is pointless, unless you wanted to add some sort of pistol grip. Filing that away would save a few ounces most likely. Heck if you use a forward pistol grip on your main rifle you could just remove it and put it on the Chiappa before the shot, and then put it back on your main rifle before you proceed.. I feel that pistol grip rifles are easier to control personally.

I would look into replacing the wire stock on the back. It is probably made out of aluminum, but changing the rods to carbon fiber would most likely save a little weight.

I haven't held it in hand, but I would even look at completely removing the pivot bar and putting a bolt with something like a cotter key or a nut on the end so it could completely be taken down. As I said I haven't held it, so I don't know how well the inside mechanism is, but it is a thought of mine.

The rear sight looks a little bulky and meh. If there is a rail on top maybe take a tech sight for a Marlin and put it on there depending on if the height is correct.

I personally think that a single shot would be one of the best survival firearms since they are stupid easy with not much to go wrong.

I don't think it would be very hard to get that down under 3lbs.

Agreed.

It looks to be a lego platform that you can use to customize quite a bit. If the barrel is not glued+pressed in and if the receiver is not just cheap aluminum then it could be possible to re-barrel the action to other calibers.

I looked into these .22lr pack rifles quite a bit and they don't seem to be accurate except for the 10/22 take down which I could not find. I ended up with this. It's fairly expensive but my life might depend on it someday. Very accurate. It uses 10/22 parts including stock, trigger group and magazines.

goes well with a Leupold VX-2 2-7x28 ultralight rimfire scope.

The whole package loaded with scope is under 5 lbs.

It lives in the scabbard of my eberlestock pack.

Some more descriptions of the rifle in this video, it explains the rail behind the trigger.


The "Double badger" is even more sweet!

If it comes down to just price in Canada you can get a Norinco JW20 which is a clone of the browning for 169.00 and the Little Badger is 189.00 makes it a whole lot simpler to pick. I went looked at the little badger went hmm that's neat but I don't like how I can't break it in half would need less space that way. Same with the double badger would of been better if they made it like the norinco with a tab to remove the forarm then just break it apart and you have 3 pieces.

Living in Australia and the semi auto being out of the question for "most" of us, this little gun does peak my interest as a pack rifle. Thanks for the heads up about it.

The nice thing about the CLB is that folded it fits in a rucksack and can be pulled, loaded and fired before any of the take-downs can be assembled. I have it in 22WMR to make that one shot count.
