Converting Old Browning Model A-5s

Newer versions of this famous shotgun use roll pins instead of screws to hold certain action parts. Here’s how to convert early Auto-5s.

Glock Mods: An M1911 Man Branches Out

I’ve worked with the 1911 for many years, and sometimes that experience has been helpful with other pistols, such as the Browning Hi-Power, for example. Sometimes the differences between pistols are hard to spot, and other times we find similarities between handguns that at first seem very different. Another example: If you can work on the Savage 1910, you can work on the Astra 400, and you won’t be confused by the H&K P7M8. But the Glock? Ah, the Glock is an altogether different creature. Sometimes my 1911-based reasoning produces positive results with the Glock, and other times it does not. With the Glock so popular with law-enforcement and now proving itself in competition—winning the first top-class award at IPSC—we’re going to see more and more Glocks turned in for improvement. And at the very least, we should be familiar with the similarities and the differences between the Glock and “old Slabsides.”

The Chiappa 1886 Traditional Trapper

New Traditional and Modern Full-Power Chiappa .45-70 Carbines

September 21, 2011

Printer Friendly | Email |

(GunReports.com) -- Chiappa Firearms is introducing two new .45-70 lever action carbines for 2011. These new carbines can safely fire full-power modern era ammunition or traditional era correct .45-70 loads.

The first is the Chiappa 1886 Traditional Trapper. The Traditional Trapper's action is modeled after the original Winchester 1886 but, the company says, with modern manufacturing and materials, the result is a traditional looking 1886 with superior accuracy and strength.

The Traditional Trapper features a traditional walnut stock, and an 18 1/2-inch full octagonal 4140 alloy blued-steel barrel. To compliment the barrel, the receiver, lever and crescent butt plate have a beautiful case-colored finish. Magazine capacity is 6-rounds. MSRP $1,249.

The 1886 Kodiak Trapper is Chiappa's second new .45-70 model and again uses the time-proven 1886 action. This is the same basic rifle as the Traditional Trapper but with 21st Century ergonomic and design elements. The barrel is half-round and the half forward of the forearm tip is octagonal. The barrel, action, hammer and lever are finished in weather-resistant brushed electroless nickel.

The walnut stock is encased with a tough armor-like rubberized finish. This finish provides serious knock-around protection for the stock and delivers

a superior no-slip positive purchase for the shooter in most any weather conditions--especially handy if charged by an aggravated bear, moose, or hog.

Chiappa's Kodiak Trapper also features detachable sling swivels, a more inline stock with higher comb, slightly raised corporal point (bottom of butt) and flat rubber butt pad are all designed for reduced felt recoil and quick to shoulder movement. The Kodiak also comes with Skinner Express Sights for extra fast sight/target acquisition and the barrel is drilled and tapped for a forward fitting Scout Rifle scope. MSRP $1,395.

Basic Specifications of both carbines:
Caliber:.45-70 (modern era or traditional rounds)
Magazine Capacity: 6-rounds
Barrel (Traditional Trapper) 18 1/2-inch octagonal blued
Barrel (Kodiak Trapper) 18 1/2-inch half round half-octagonal electroless nickel
Overall length: 37-inches
Weight: 8 1/2 pounds

I'd prefer the Marlin version.

Sure hope they get their Quality Control personnel more involved than with the 1911-22 they produced. Mine had areas that had no bluing whatsoever on the metal alloy. The slide after 30 rounds had what little blueing worn off. In other words a POS! I would hope at the price they are asking for the 1886, I will go with a Marlin; I know their QC is proven.

Would be better if Winchester would just re-configure their Japanese plant to produce some of these short rifles... the last thing they did in the 1886 was the "sporting rifle".. don't think they ever made a true carbine. The Browning 1886 carbines were the best SRC repros, but they're hard to find... although for these prices, I would hunt down one of the Browning SRCs or find a Win Sporting Rifle and have the barrel shortened !! I think the Marlin 1895 is still the best affordable / durable answer to the 45-70 lever gun question !!

Should have had a 20 inch barrel, at least, on both versions. Full synthetic stock would have been better on the Kodiak version, too. Given their track record, I don't expect a high level of quality from this company, but for the MSRP listed, it had better be as good or better than a Winchester, Marlin, or a Uberti. Either way, I won't be impressed until I see one first hand, and in this caliber, it had better be darn good.

I'm sticking with my Marlin 1895.

They do LOOK cool but in my area we can buy two Marlin Guide Guns for the cost of one these "unknown quantities".
