Chiappa Firearms USA, Ltd. is offering a nostalgic and classic shooting experience with the M1-22 and M1-9 carbine-style rifles. Chambered in .22 Long Rifle and 9 mm respectively, the rifles are nearly identical to one of World War II's most famous small arms, the M1 Carbine.

The M1-22 creates the look and feel of the venerable USGI M1 Carbine, but chambered in the inexpensive and easy to shoot .22 LR. A great .22 rimfire rifle in its own right, the M1-22 has the exact overall dimensions as the original M1 Carbine. Available with either a wood or polymer stock, they are interchangeable with genuine M1 Carbines. Each M1-22 comes with two 10-round magazines.





This easy-to-shoot rifle has the same overall dimensions, trigger groups design and sights as the original, but is chambered in the affordable and readily available 9 mm Luger. The receiver has a 3/8" dovetail machined into the receiver, and dovetail-to-Picatinny adapters are also included for mounting optics. The straight blowback design makes the M1-9 ultra-reliable and easy to clean and maintain. Cartridges are fed from standard Beretta M9/92 magazines. Two 10-round magazines are included with each M1-9.




Both the M1-22 and M1-9 have a trigger group and safety patterned after the original with a look and operation exactly the same. Like the original, Chiappa Firearms' M1 rifles have a sliding rear sight and winged front sight, as well as a 3/8" dovetail machined on top of the front and rear receiver rings. Picatinny mount adapters are also included.
