Chiappa 1886 Kodiak .45-70 Coming to USA

    I first blogged about the Chiappa 1886 Kodiak rifles back in April when they were on display the the EXA ’11 Italian arms expo. The good news is that MKS Supply is importing them into the USA. The gun comes in two models, a synthetic / brushed-nickel model and a traditional wood model with a beautiful case colored receiver.

    Both models have a 6+1 capacity, 18.5″ barrel and weigh 8.5 lbs. The 1886 Kodiak Trapper (syntheic stock) has a MSRP of $1395. The 1886 Kodiak Traditional Trapper has a MSRP of $1295. Currently MKS is only importing the guns chambered in .45-70.
