Chiappa M4-22

Chiappa M4-22

The first morning of the NRA Annual Meetings in Pittsburgh there were no lines that I ran across, but the crowd was huge. The first booth I made my way to was Chiappa for an up close look at its M4-style rimfire. With polymer lower and upper receivers this .22 LR rimfire is priced reasonably with an MSRP of $469. 

As you can see the gun has a carry handle. 

It comes in a variety of color configurations and even a functioninig dust cover. And at the top of the company's display today you'll see an upper that will fit any mil-spec lower. MSRP for the upper alone is $349.

The rear sight is adjustable for both windage and elevation. According to the company spokesman I grilled today, it's identical to military issue. The front sight is adjustable for elevation.

Because of importation regulations it comes with a fixed stock, but it is affixed to the upper receiver in the same thread pattern as a standard AR-15, which means if you're so inclined you can replace the stock with an aftermarket version. Two polymer magazines supplied with the rifle have a capacity of either 10 or 28 rounds.

Overall length of the rifle is 34.25 inches. The barrel is 16 inches long and the rifling has a 1:16-inch twist. It weighs only 4.84 pounds, has flash hider and pseudo bayonet lug to add to its looks.

 There's a lot of fun to be had for the money here.
