    1. This M1 carbine 22 from Chiappa was total junk. I tried several different types of ammo but it would not even come close to working. I returned mine and got my money back. I will never buy a Chiappa product again.

    2. Hmm… They seem to work best with 22LR ammo as per their design. They have a fairly stiff spring for the blow back bolt. You must have got a bad one or one not properly cleaned of shipping lubricants.

      They seem to work as well as the Rugar 10/22 so far. But then I only shoot it at the range or camp outs for fun and don’t try to fire it too fast.

      I like the balanced weight of the rifle, but don’t see the need for the forward bayonet lug, wish I could take it off. The 10 round magazine is more for looks than function as only part of it is in use.

    3. All clean ammo works great. I have yet to find CCI that does not work.
      My two complaints are: the forward stock spring does not pop out enough
      to hold the stock; one from a real carbine does, the front sight had to be
      filed down to bring up the point of impact. I also have a Chiappa upper
      for an AR and I love it and would buy more if available.

    4. I bought two M1 22 Citadel’s from Walmart a few days ago. I got them on a real deal, they were closing them out. Took them out shooting with a friend and had a barrel of fun. I mean after I figured out how to keep them from jamming when loading from the plastic clip. When that was settled we fed about 500 round each that day and no tin can, plastic plate, orange clay duck or water filled plastic bottle escaped unscaved. We had about 4 round that were crimped and didn’t fire (hang fire) Love this little rifle. I only wish I could get a 30 round clip, heck a 100 round drum would be even better.

    5. I’ve had my Citadel M1 22 carbine for quite a few yrs. and I have NO complaints . I’ve lost track on rounds I’ve put through it. CC I shoots the BEST. The carbine is all tricked -out as the .30 cal. would have been in combat , even down to the hip holster. I still get a LOT of compliments on it’s looks and performance . The .22 carbine shot hot , straight ,and true right out of the box ,( can’t say that about other rifles I used to own) . If I had the chance I would own another .
