We were recently notified Chiappa Firearms USA has decided to sell individually what was once available only as a complete set.

Here’s what they told us.

Chiappa X-Caliber Inserts Now Available Individually

Chiappa Firearms USA, Ltd., a market leading brand of rifles, shotguns, handguns and historic replica muzzleloaders now offers the X-Caliber shotgun-to-cartridge barrel inserts individually.

Chiappa X Caliber 1

Previously available as a complete set, shooters can now get the cartridge inserts that best fit their particular needs. X-Caliber inserts add unparalleled versatility to any 12ga or 20ga break- open shotgun by allowing the use of smaller bore shotshells and handgun cartridges. When paired with an appropriate shotgun, like the Chiappa M6 combination gun, the X-Caliber system is the ultimate survival firearm.

With X-Caliber, one 12ga shotgun can shoot up to eleven different cartridges/shotshells and one 20ga shotgun can shoot up to seven cartridges/shotshells. X-Caliber allows shooting the most popular centerfire pistol cartridges and smaller bore shotshells through any break-open action 12ga. or 20ga. shotgun.

Each insert is a premium quality barrel machined from steel and contoured to fit into the shotgun chamber. Once inserted, the cartridge or shotshell for that insert can be chambered and fired in the shotgun. X-Caliber inserts can be installed and removed without tools or any modification to the shotgun. Inserts available for 12ga. shotguns include .380acp, 9mm Luger, .38spl/.357mag, 40S&W, .44mag, .45ACP, 410ga/.45Colt and 20ga. Inserts for 20ga shotguns include 9mm luger, .38spl/.357mag, .45ACP and 410ga/.45Colt. The complete kit comes in a high quality nylon case that holds all of the inserts safely and securely. Inserts can also be purchased individually.
