    North Sylvia-Chiappa Alaskan Scout Take Down in 45-70

    Hi Jon-North Sylvia,

    A dealer in B.C. recently had a limited run of the Chiappa Alaskan Scout Take Down 12" in .44 caliber.

    They sold very fast but there was a very large interest by others on their dealer forum thread to bring this gun in the larger 45-70 caliber.

    Do you know if there is any plans on bringing this gun in this caliber in the near future?

    The only thing other than the larger caliber that could improve this gun in my opinion would be to have it made in stainless rather than chrome.

    I think if you guys brought this gun in you would find it would sell out in a few days.

    If these make it in I would buy one. I was on the fence with the .44 model, 45-70 and stainless would be an instant buy for me.

    .454 would be better IMO, but mildly interested in a .45-70
    Capacity in a tube magazine for the latter is kinda lame.

    Heh, if we're going to entertain that idea why not make a levergat in .460 S&W and make it so it'll take .45 Colt and .454 and as well. Phenomenal range of loads there.
    One can dream...

    IF the funds were available at the time, and the wife's back was turned, I would probably go in for a 45-70

    Hummm... 45-70 kind of seems dumb with only a 12" tube.... what would you get, 3, maybe four rounds?
    You know you are a real gunnut when you start practicing trigger control on power tools.

    I think you should be able to get 4 rounds in the tube and one in the chamber if they fit tight in the tube. I believe the shell is around 2.5" long and the bullet around .5" extending from the shell.

    Perhaps they could make it 12.5" or 13" length to accommodate this.

    5 rounds is plenty IMO
