The Little Badger survival gun from Chiappa Firearms, previously offered in .22 LR, 22 WMR, and .17 HMR, is now available in 17 WSM.

This lightweight, ultra-compact, break-open rifle is designed to go anywhere at any time. When the action is opened and the gun folded, it measures a mere 17" overall length and stows neatly in an included pack/case. The wire frame stock keeps weight to a minimum and the integrated shell holder in the back holds 12 cartridges, so ammo is always at the ready. The Little Badger comes equipped with an M1 Carbine-style front and rear sight. In addition, Picatinny rails are mounted top, bottom and on both sides just forward of the receiver for mounting optics and accessories. Plus, an optional handle/cleaning kit combination accessory screws into the bottom of the receiver. With a compact length and weighing only 2.9 lbs, the Little Badger can truly be taken almost anywhere when the situation calls for a lightweight, versatile rifle.
