SHOT Show 2017 - The popular Chiappa Firearms Little Badger single-shot carbine is now available in the .17 Winchester Super Magnum rimfire caliber
First introduced in 2013, the .17 Winchester Super Magnum rimfire rifle cartridge was developed by Winchester Ammunition from the .27 caliber nail gun blank necked down to take a .17/4,5mm caliber bullet. Available in 20- or 25-grain bullet loads, the .17 WSM round delivers muzzle velocities of 2600 to 3000 feet-per-second, which makes it an ideal choice for small game or vermin extermination on medium-to-long distances.
Chiappa's Little Badger – the ultimate packable survival gun of the decade – is now available in .17 Winchester Super Magnum after the success of the .22 Long Rifle, the .22 Winchester Magnum Rimfire and .17 Hornady Magnum Rimfire version launched in the past years. A lightweight, ultra-compact, break-open rifle, the Little Badger 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. A "Deluxe" variant is also available, though, featuring a wooden stock and handguard in lieu of the polymer railed handguard and wire buttstock.
The Little Badger comes equipped with an M1 Carbine style front and rear sight. Picatinny rails are mounted top, bottom and on both side just forward of the receiver for mounting optics and accessories. An optional handle/cleaning kit combination accessory screws into the bottom of the receiver. Compact length and weighing only 2.9lbs, the Little Badger can truly be taken almost anywhere when the situation calls for a lightweight, versatile rifle.
