    I saw that as well, at that price its pretty tempting. I really like the idea of a combo gun but cant help thinking this thing is going to suck at both jobs. If you shop around a bit you should be able to find a cheap .22 and a shotgun both of which would be much more effective and not that much more in cost.

    Watched those on YouTube, not very good, the finishing is terrible. I’d recommend a tippman 22.

    I have owned a Chiappa fold up .22 for a couple of years now and it's pretty bad workmanship and accuracy but it does the job out to about 35m with a red dot on it, good for possums. They're definitely cheap firearms, the main reason I have held onto mine is because it was my first rifle.

    Seems like a good firearm for people lucky enough to get small game permits from DOC if public land hunting is all they can do.
