Chiappa is now making a clone of the Winchester 1887 lever action shotgun. The Chiappa states the gun can handle all modern “high-pressure” 2 3/4″ shotgun ammo. It has a five shell tubular magazine and can also hold two additional shells (one in the chamber, one in the receiver) for a total of seven rounds.
The gun will ship with either a 22″ barrel or a 28″ barrel. The stock is walnut and the receiver is either case colored or polished blue. The 22″ barrel shotgun weighs nine pounds, while its longer brother comes in a nine pounds, four ounces.
The shotguns are assembled by hand in Italy. MSRP runs from $1,333 to $1,533 (US) depending on which model and finish the buyer wants.
