The current ammunition situation is putting a huge halt to a lot of peoples preparedness programs. While it is hard to purchase certain calibers of ammunition, you can’t always run out and purchase a firearm in a particular caliber because the ammo is readily available. So what is the next best thing? Check out this new survival rifle from Chiappa Firearms.

The X-Caliber adds some noted improvements over the M6 Aircrew Survival Weapon which include separate triggers for the shotgun and .22, enhanced trigger guard, better loop and post sights, and three picatinny rails for sights, lasers, and accessories. Here is a video with Tim Ralston of Gear Up discussing the new X-Caliber:


The X-Caliber includes 8 steel adapters that converts the 12-gauge smooth-bore into a rifle for 8 separate pistol calibers including: .380 , 9 mm , .357Mag/.38SP , .40 S & W, .44 Mag, .45 ACP , .410/.45colt, and down-sizes to .410 and 20-gauge for a total of 12 calibers. While this is very cool and could be very useful to a lot of folks, let’s hope we see this product soon!

Interesting option, only down side I would see would be the single shot only. But could save your bacon or put some in your gut.

how will the other bullets react to the smooth bore though with the conversion kit
I would believe the inserts are rifled, due to their length, looks like maybe 4-6" of riffling. After the bullet would exit the insert it would just free bore out the barrel. I.M.P.O.
