Judging by the price, that third barrel must be made of something fairly expensive. Kind of a novelty, but I am not anti-novelty.

The real question is does it come in a tactical version with rails and bipod and tactical stuff!

It weighs 8 lb 3 oz empty, add so tactical stuff and it will go over 10 lbs. How far would you want to carry it? Equipped with tactical stuff, it would be great for your bunker in the front yard.

I'm thinking mount it in the bed of a pick up for a hunt on the plains of Africa.

I wonder how the trigger mech works? Single trigger in a SXS is usually unreliable hence the double trigger set. Interesting though.

Reviews have said they're built like a Stoeger as fas as quality.

Nothing wrong with that except it's priced beside a Benelli auto.

Yep. For that kind of money I would prefer a semi auto with one barrel.

The concept is interesting and all, but personally I'll never buy anything from Chiappa again.

Had a 1911-22 from them. Bought it brand new, at a Dayton gun show (where they're located) It did nothing but malfunction constantly. Didnt matter what kind of ammo I tried, fail to feed, light strikes, one after another. So, being a brand new gun, I sent it back to them. 5 months later, after numerous frustrating phone calls and emails, I get my gun back.... still not fixed. I send it back again. Another 3 months and numerous phone calls and emails later, I get my gun back again. Still not functioning properly. I took it apart, gave it a thorough cleaning, and it works 100% properly now. Sold it immediatly.

Decided to give them another shot, and bought a Rhino 357mag. Ordered some oversized grips for it. Took them 6 months to get the grips to me and they were the wrong finish. Called them to deal with it, they said theyd get the correct ones sent out immediatly (wasnt holding my breath). 2 months later, I get another set of the incorrect grips. Cut my losses and swore I'd never do business with them again. The firing pin on it sticks forward sometimes and doesnt let the cylinder rotate properly. Oh well. Sold that to a friend for cheap.

All of this happened while I lived in Cincinnati, 45mins from them too, so its not like I was far away from them or anything.

Sorry for the rant. Chiappa has had me a little worked up if you couldnt tell, lol. No triple barreled shotgun for me!
