Thank you Buds Guns for the great products and exceptional service. Keeping in mind that Buds does not manufacture the guns that are sold. This negative review has no reflection on Buds Guns. This is a negative review on my experience with the Citadel M1a Carbine Rifle 22cal. As an owner of a M1 Garand, I thought it would be cool to own a M1a Carbine and the fact that it's a economical 22cal., I was looking forward to lots of plinking time at a reasonable amout of money in ammo.
Well, to start with; the sights drove me crazy as they would move from side to side with every other shot fired. I say every other shot because it would STOVE-PIPE EVERY OTHER SHOT, causing damage to the shell casing rendering it unuseable. I used CCI Mini-Mags and they work great in all my other 22's; Ruger 10-22, ISSC-22 and S&W M22a. After attempting to fire off 100 rounds, I managed to actually shoot 45 to 50 rounds and needless to say with the PLASTIC CHEAP sights moving around after every shot, well my time at the range was a waste of time. So I return home and email the people at Chiappa Firearms and get a return authorization and sent the carbine in for repair or replacement. I sent it in on June 8, 2012, and now it is August 12, 2012 and I still haven't heard from Chiappa. Hopefully, it will come back to me in good operating order. Am I happy with my choice? NO! Would I ever recommend this weapon? NO! Would I buy another Chiappa product? Heck No! God Bless America...... I get to write this and still go shooting my other Pistols and Rifles......
