    Chiappa Double Badger - Video Review

    (I couldn't decide if this should go in rimfire or shotguns.... so I put it here)

    Over/Under .22LR/.410 combination gun review! Perfect for small game hunting and general plinking.

    if you had trouble deciding which category to put this video your head would spin reviewing the Chiappa X-Calibre. :-P

    The badger line of rifles are pretty sweet. I have the .22lr version and I do love it. It's tiny and weighs almost nothing. All my buddies bought the .22 mag versions after they saw mine and of course they had to 1-up me. In hindsight I wish I had bought this one just to have that added 410.

    ***AND they are available at Canadian Tire***

    I like this better than the savage, but that's just me. I like that old school look. Also its cheaper than the savage by a reasonable amount.

    I took some kids shooting with this gun and they had an absolute riot. It's fun for adults, but it's definitely fun for kids too.

    Great grouse gun for when you're scouting in the truck.

    Nice review mmatt - i subscribed, I'll look forward to your next ones.

    I chose this over the Savage 42 for a couple of reasons. One reason was the lower cost but more importantly to me was the choke. The Savage 42 comes with a cylinder bore choke (ie. no choke at all) while the Double Badger comes with a full choke. In my opinion, when shooting a .410, you pretty much want all the choke you can get.

    That's my view as well. And it annoys me savage did that.

    Thanks for the vid, interesting gun - but why are you flinching with a 410?
