The 1892 line of lever-action rifles is one of the products for which Chiappa Firearms is best known, and the new Wildlands models are intended to project one of history’s most iconic gun designs well into the 21st century. The Chiappa 92 L.A. Wildlands lever-actions are built around fully CNC-machined receivers and have 16-inch barrels. The rifles also feature a five-shot magazine tube with a standard, side-loading port, a top-ejection system, and a classic half-cock hammer safety.

“Lever-action rifles are true classics, and without doubt, in the last 10 years, Chiappa Firearms has been among the most active interpreters of this American design by blending tradition with modern features,” says production manager Bruno Circi. “The new Chiappa 92 L.A. Wildlands line offers Cerakote finishes paired with eye-catching laminated woods along with optional take-down features and two great calibers, the .44 Magnum and the .45-70 Government. It makes for an appealing choice for any retailer that has customers who enjoy using a lever-action.”

The new rifles will be available in three versions. The 92 L.A. Wildlands model in .44 Magnum offers a Tactical Grey Cerakote finish on all outer metal surfaces and dark-grey laminate furniture. The conic-profile barrel comes with a protected 13.5x1 LH thread at the muzzle. The Take Down model in .44 Magnum of .45-70 Gov’t is available with either a conic- or an octagonal-profile barrel, with a 5/8x24 muzzle thread. The rifle breaks down easily into two components for easy cleaning and convenient storage or carry. The Classic model in .44 Magnum has a blued finish on the barrel and feeding port, a color-case-hardened frame and lever, and oil-finished walnut furniture. The conic-profile barrel comes with a protected 13.5x1LH thread at the muzzle.

All models come with a fiber-optic front sight, a rear Skinner peep sight, and a Picatinny rail for mounting optics. Sling swivel studs are standard. SRP: $1,434 to $2,099, depending on model and caliber. Booth #11734. (chiappafirearms.com)
