Chiappa X-Caliber, true multicaliber?

Just saw this posted. Sounds like a great SHTF gun.

12 ga/.22 over under with inserts for the 12 ga barrel to allow up to 10 additional calibers, primarily handgun rounds, 410, and 20 ga

Overpriced with a MSP of $750. Also, folded it takes a ton of room it's a big V.

At $450 they would sell at $300 you couldn't keep the on the self.

Foam stock? I'm not sure that would hold up to much cleaning or hard use...

The 8 inserts drive the cost up. Have you priced anything like that lately? Conversion inserts run about $100 a pop.

I saw this a few weeks ago when someone asked here about M-6's
Not a fan of the foam but i'm sure someone will make something better aftermarket for it

I'd like to get my hands on one though

More like $35. It would sell better as a 12/22 then sell inserts. I have subs for my 12ga in 28,16,20 ga and 410 bore. The two packs ran $37 each at a show.

But that's for smooth bore shotgun inserts. The rifled inserts would likely cost more.

As for the foam, I do to think it's really intended for "hard use" but more as an "oh crap, I can't get ammo/ SHTF scenario. I don't see myself buying one, but it is an interesting idea.

Don't see myself using one for SHTF. If I have to leave my house on foot then I want capabilities beyond what this rifle can offer.

If I can stay home during a SHTF then I'll just use a gun made for the ammo I'm shooting.

Why wouldn't you take a 9mm, .40 S&W, .45 ACP and a 12ga and possibly an AR-15 in 5.56. You know all of the tools you have today. The issue is having firearms that will readily use the calibers of ammo you find along the way once the SHTF. Changing barrels along the way is going to be a pain in the ass.

As an M6 fan I see this mainly as a dud unless they get really cheap

1. Inserts, will they really be accurate?

2. Foam stock really?

3. Lever opening is nice

Seems heavy for what it is designed to do.

Why couldnt they have made an M6, the patents have to be expired by now and it isnt that tricky of a design.
