Chiappa Firearms débuts its new M-9 (9mm lookalike) semi-auto pistol in .22 Long Rifle caliber.
The same size as the 9mm M-9 Its great looks, quality manufacture, and of course economic caliber make it a natural for everything from lookalike economical practice to plinking.
The original 9mm x19mm M-9 won the competition for the new U.S. Military sidearm back in the mid-1980s and became the official U.S. Military sidearm in 1990 with a new model designation. This new Chiappa .22 caliber pistol is a faithful copy of that handgun.
Two Models comprising three variants (plastic or wood grips) are available:
The first is the M9-22 Standard model. This model features drift adjustable rear sights and a choice of wood or black plastic grips. Its suggested retail is $369.00.
The second model is the M9-22 Tactical. This thing is cool! It is a replica of the current U.S. Military model and comes with black plastic grips (no wood). It comes with drift adjustable replica Novak style fiber optic rear sights.
The M9-22 Tactical features a 1/2inch X 28 threaded barrel and replica suppressor and thread protector cap when the replica suppressor is not on the gun. However, the pistol will accept most real suppressors and silencers. Chiappa does NOT make suppressors or silencers. These Class Three devices must be purchased and registered through licensed dealers. The M9-22 has a suggested retail of $419.00.
