    Good report and very much appreciated. Like I suspect many others, I am curious about this revolver.

    .I wrote this at work. It's considered bad form to haul out your gun and plop it on the desk to take a picture. Maybe I can post some tomorrow.

    I think they are manufactured in Italy, but the importer is near you. That's one of the reason they took so much time to get; jumping all of the international hoops.

    Price? Or did I miss it?
    $826.00

    Thanks for the likes and comments, folks. I enjoyed writing this. I'm normally only on on the weekends if I don't get back to you right away.

    Thanks for the review. I actually owned the same exact model for about 1 1/2 months. It was for my wife and was her first firearm. I took her to the gunshop and let her pick her own gun out, the guy behind the counter led her to this one with the less recoil feature. Long story short (and almost 900 dollars later), she didnt like it. The trigger pull was too much for her, and even with 2 hands she couldnt cock the hammer back for single action. I put about 100 rounds thru it myself, and while i did think the hammer and trigger pull were a bit much, the wierd gun was growing on me. But seeing as cash flow is always a problem, more important to get the wife a gun she was comfortable with and happy with, traded it in for a ruger sp101 with a laser and some ammo and she loves that one. Kind of wish i could have kept it to play with some more. Does yours have extremely hard hammer and trigger?

    Thanks for the review. I too have looked at them but never read/heard anyone's personal experience.

    Harry:

    No photos because it broke the camera !

    What's your opinion?
    It's an okay gun?
    I want a second opinion!
    It's ugly too!

    Sorry, low hanging fruit, but I couldn't resist

    I really appreciate your review - You covered all the questions I had. Now If Chiappa could find a way to lower that price!

    I guess it's all relative. For me, the hammer works easily, and my trigger pull is moderate. I perceive it to be easier than the SA first pull on my Beretta 92 and a lot easier than the pull on my Raging Judge. One of these days, I'm going to buy a trigger scale just for fun.
    I know that you believe you understand what you think i said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.
