1886 Ridge Runner Rifle Matte Black

Some sporting rifles are just too good to die and a classic example is the 1886. Originally created by genius gunsmith John Browning and produced from 1897 to 1935, is manufactured in even more configurations today. These new models are produced with modern metallurgy and a twist rate suitable for today’s ammunition. It is the perfect choice for hunters looking for a hard-hitting lever action and lever action enthusiasts. The Ridge Runner Take Down Rifle features a matte blued finish, black rubber soft touch over walnut stock & forend, a half octagonal barrel, integrated Skinner peep & weaver rail rear sight, front fiber optic sight, sling mounts, D-shaped lever, and a muzzle brake. A threaded cap is included if the muzzle brake is not used and the muzzle brake thread is 5/8x24. The take down action disassembly is the same an original 1892 take down disassembly and has interrupted threads on the receiver to allow removal of the barrel. To take down the rifle the action must be levered open, the disassembly lever on the magazine tube used to unscrew the tube until it is free from the receiver, then while holding the tube slightly up from the action twist the barrel 90 degrees so that it is perpendicular to the receiver (the muzzle brake must be removed before disassembly).

Not what I expected. Review by Tyson

I bought my 1886 about six months ago. I wanted a 45-70 and had my mind made up to purchase a marlin sbl. A friend of mine that owns the gun store that I buy all of my firearms from suggested the Chiappa 1886. He said that I would pay more for it up front but if I bought the marlin, I would want to make some changes that would require a gunsmith and more money. He said that if I bought the Chiappa i would be happy with it out of the box. So i bought it, keep in mind that I had never seen it in person by-the-way. When it came in and he took it out of the box to run through the details with me I was stunned at how gorgeous it was ( stainless steel). It was downright sexy. Then I shot it. OMG, smooth, balanced, solid and consistently accurate. It was not what I expected, IT IS MUCH MORE!!!! (Posted on 12/26/2016)

I own several 45-70's and love them all dearly, but my all time favorite is my Winchester 1886 short rifle. I had been looking to get a shorter 45-70 to use as a brush gun, and that would be a little more resistant to the elements. Instead of a marlin I went with the 1886 ridge runner, due to the convenience of the take down option, and because it also uses the famed 1886 action. Over all this is a fantastic little 45-70, a lot of power in a small package. My only complaint, is i wish it had a full magazine tube. (Posted on 3/22/2016)
