1886 Kodiak Trapper

New for 2012 from Chiappa Firearms is this carbine model of the venerable 1886 rifle.  Winchester produced nearly 160,000 of their version of the 1886.  Originally a John M. Browning design, the 1886 has been through a few changes over the years, including the pistol gripped version called the Model 71.

Ciappa 1886 Rifle.

Pictured here is the Rifle version of the Chiappa 1886.

The latest edition from Chiappa is a carbine with an 18.5″ barre, half round and half octagon, the finish is a brushed electroless nickle.  The stocks are walnut over-coated with a rubberized finish.  Obviously, this rifle is intended for easy handling and wet weather.  Sights are “Skinner Express Sights”.  Caliber is 45-70, however it could easily be converted to 450 or 50 Alaskan.
