Chiappa’s M6 Survival Gun Comes in 22 WMR and With Choke Tubes
Russ Chastain 10.19.16
Based on the original M6, Chiappa Firearms’ improved version is available in 12ga/22 LR, 12ga/22WMR, 20ga/22 LR or 20ga/22WMR combinations. The M6 shotgun barrels are threaded for Rem® Choke tubes and include a modified choke.
This is good news for folks who want more oomph from their rimfire barrel. I prefer a 22 mag over 22 LR even for small game because poorly-placed shots have caused me to lose squirrels in the past. But if I fail to hit the head of a squirrel or rabbit with a 22 magnum and hit it elsewhere, the result is pretty devastating. Yes, it will ruin more meat than a 22 Long Rifle, but I’d rather lose a little meat and get a quick kill than to lose an animal that may die slowly and in vain.
The choke tube idea is a good one, too. It’s always nice to be able to adjust your choke to suit the circumstances.
This sure looks like a handy little popper; I might oughta look into getting one.
