This is Part One of a two part review featuring the Chiappa Firearms Little Badger folding survival rifle. Ever since I first saw this rifle, it’s been in my sights for an in-depth test and review. The Little Badger has a charm and practicality in its simplicity and easy of carry, and I can’t help but be reminded of the classic 1973 film ‘The Day of the Jackal’.
In this, Part One, of the review we start with a good look round the Little Badger, then onto the official accessories from Chiappa, and finally a cracking little 1-4×20 scope from In Your Sights, that has been a great match for this excellent super-light rifle.
The folding rifle as it arrives.
A good look round the Little Badger – Things to look out for here are:
Taking in all the details and options for add-ons. Moderator threading, open sights, rails, action and initial adjustments.
Little Badger Accessories:
Chiappa offer several accessories for the Little Badger including a cleaning kit handle, hammer extension and pistol grip.
A suitable scope – In Your Sights ATOM 1-4×20:
Being a small and light rifle, it needed a suitable compact scope, and in my search for an ideal match I came across the IYS (In Your Sights) ATOM 1-4×20 compact zoom rifle scope. This gallery gives you a good look round, and through, the scope.
And there is more in Pt 2:
It’s not over yet! There has just been too much to look at all in one go.
