Taylors and Company 920285 1886 Lever 45-70 Government 26" W 
by Brad W
Date Added: Tuesday 31 January, 2012
Since there was no way to know that this rifle was defective prior to completing the FFL transfer, I was forced to utilize the manufacturer's warranty return process. I sent the rifle back under warranty and was surprised to have the rifle returned in about 2 weeks.
Unfortunately, the rifle still does not cycle factory ammunition. I can see that some parts were changed but now the action locks up tight with the cartridge stuck in the action. Additionally, the front sight fell off as I took the rifle out of the packaging. This rifle is actually worse after the warranty work. I am stunned that they would ship a rifle that locks up tight. This tells me that it was not even tested to ensure that it cycled a cartridge properly.
I am lost on what to do now. I have a $1100 piece of junk. DO NOT BUY THIS RIFLE, IT IS JUNK. This is shameful. I would be suspect regarding anyt firearm from Chiapa and would also be concerned that the warranty is worthless as evidenced by the fact that this rifle had been sent in for repair and was sent back with testing that it would cycle properly.
I really do not know where to go now as I cannot return it to Bud's per their policy. I did understand this policy prior to purchase.
I still have not fired this rifle yet, as it still does not function correctly.
