For many the idea of a .22 caliber carbine patterned after the military M4 Carbine version serves several purposes. The Mfour fires economically priced .22 Rimfire ammunition for a ton of some serious practice for its "bigger" 5.56mm /.223 brothers. 

These lightweight carbines are great learning guns for most anyone (especially kids) for economical transition to the larger caliber and make practical training firearms for law enforcement, especially in these budget cramped times.On that latter part, but make no mistake, these are not low budget knockoffs.And let's face it, the darn things are just a bunch of fun!

The Chiappa Mfour is a ultra-quality, accurate, serious rifle.In the car world there are thousands of types and models and they vary in quality and performance of course (price too). If the Chiappa Mfour were a car it would fall into the Ferrari class (hey, it's Italian to begin with and comes out of one of the most modern, clean and high-tech gun factories in the world).

The Chiappa Mfour comes with a detachable (dual aperture adjustable iron sight) carry handle assembly and picatinney flat top for optics.
