The Italian-based Chiappa Firearms company – operating in north America through a plant located in Dayton, Ohio – launched its rimfire LA-322 lever-action sporting carbine at the SHOT Show last year.
Now, the Chiappa line of rimfire caliber lever-action carbines expands with the launch of the LA322 Kodiak Cub model – basically a restyled baseline LA322 patterned aesthetically after Chiappa's own big-bore Kodiak hunting rifle.
The Chiappa LA322 Kodiak Cub lever-action rifle sports a full matte, corrosion and weather-resistant hard-chrome finish on all metal parts and a black Soft Touch finish on the stock and handguard.
Just like the baseline LA322, it quickly and conveniently strips in two parts for easier transport and safer storage. The front-loading magazine tube holds fifteen rounds of .22 Long Rifle ammunition.
