I was looking for a .22/.410 combo to carry around in the truck on the home place, and the Savage model really didn't do much for me.
Wanted something solid, attractive, and not a synthetic stock. Couldn't find anything except the Chiappa.
I liked the way it looked, and it came in a .22 mag, and at $325.00, thought it was reasonable.
The dealer I dealt with said that they rated right up there with Ruger on the .22 end of things.
We'll see how the customer service goes.
