Chiappa® Little Badger 22 LR 16.5″ Barrel


SKU: CHI500092 Categories: , Tag:

The Little Badger is the ultimate packable survival gun. This lightweight, ultra-compact, break-open rifle is designed to go anywhere at any time. When the action is opened and the gun folded, it measures a mere 17” overall length and stows neatly in an included pack/case. The wire frame stock keeps weight to a minimum and the integrated shell holder in the back holds twelve cartridges so ammo is always at the ready. The Little Badger comes equipped with an M1 Carbine style front and rear sight. Picatinny rails are mounted top, bottom and on both sides just forward of the receiver for mounting optics and accessories.

Compact length and weighing only 2.9lbs, the Little Badger can truly be taken and ready for use just about anywhere!
