Chiappa 1892 Trapper Skinner 38/357 Lever Action Rifle
The Chiappa 1892 Trapper Skinner lever-action carbine is one of those classic yet versatile products: a shorter, lighter weight modern version of Winchester’s legendary lever action rifle that revolutioned the metallic cartridge repeating arms market in the late 19th Century and went on to become a true icon of the gun industry in the following decades.
This gun is aptly named, given its very compact design – a 16-inch barrel, perfect for brush or forest hunting – and given the use of a Skinner adjustable rear peep sight and a front interchangeable-blade, fiber-optic sight.
Skinner sights are manufactured in the State of Montana, mostly conceived for Marlin rifles and carbines, and are described by the manufacturing company as “unexpensive, but not cheap”. And that’s exactly what they are: affordable, solid, and very accurate.
With metalwork finished in a Satin Black, this truly is a versatile gun.
