The lever-action 22LR is an American classic. Chiappa continues this legacy by using modern technology and materials to produce the LA322. This beautiful rimfire is as attractive as it is functional. Accurate, quick handling and rapid shooting, the LA322 embodies all the qualities that Americans want in a lever-action rifle. A 3/8" dovetail is machined into the top of the receiver for optics. Another coveted feature is the take down design for easy transport and storage. The Chiappa LA322 Kodiak Cub is a no nonsense lever-action rifle, built for hard use and harsh environments. The matte hard chrome finish is attractive, durable and resists corrosion. Stocks are coated with Chiappas black Soft Touch coating, making the stock easier to grip and provides protection from the elements.
