Chiappa Firearms Releases The Chiappa Triple Crown, A Three Barreled Shotgun
Chiappa Firearms, Ltd. is proud to introduce the Triple Crown Series of shotguns as their flagship for the new lineup of firearms for 2013. The first "Modern Shotgun" offered by Chiappa Firearms had to be something unique and innovative pushing the edge of firearm design just as they did with the revolutionary Rhino Revolver when they introduced their first hunting / defense handgun to the market three years ago.
The Chiappa Triple Crown features a side by side barrel configuration with the third barrel on top giving the shooter a single barrel sight plane with multiple barrel performance. Each barrel is machined to accept Rem-Choke style choke tubes and each shotgun includes 5 choke tubes ranging from Improved Cylinder to Full Choke. The thunder is released with a single mechanical trigger that provides simplistic reliability and lightning fast speed for follow up shots. Keeping the design simple, Chiappa chose mechanical extractors for the first production release which will be available in 12 gauge with 3" chambering. The Triple Crown features a 28" barrel and weighs in at a surprisingly light and well balanced 8.5 lbs. And if that is not enough, the Triple Crown has a rowdy relative that is sure to grab your attention with an 18.5" barrel and boasting the name of the Triple Threat!
