Default Taylor's .44 Mag 1892 Alaskan Rifle

In this video I get to shoot Taylor's & Company's .44 Magnum 1892 Alaskan lever action, takedown rifle. I really enjoyed shooting this rifle. It is equipped with an excellent, barrel-mounted, aperture sight, made by Skinner Sights in Montana. I found the rifle to be quick handling with a smooth action. My full review will be in the November 2013 issue of "Rifle Firepower" magazine.

Mike, I see you're making the rounds with this announcement: comparing and contrasting it to the old Alaskan Copilot, right?

Yeah. Of course the C0-pilot is chambered in .45-70. I love playing with their stuff at SHOT, but I've never had one for T&E. Is this one yours?

I wish! I could swing the parkerized one I 'spose. I would like to see low, compact, scout-mount optics on the Chiappa as well as dual diopter iron sights (ghost ring and long distance i.e. an A/R) for backup. Would be a dream if it were, I dunno, synthetic stocked, octagonal to ported round, and chambered in .357 Maximum too!

You sure shot yours perfectly!

The Chiappas are drilled and tapped to mount long eye relief scopes on the barrel, just like the Co-Pilots.
