Product Quality



The Chiappa Group produces two basically separate lines of products : replica firearms (by the company and brand name Armi Sport), and signal and blank firing pistols (by the company and brand name Kimar). We therefore have two different production philosophies, both living – with frequent synergy – under the same roof, the Chiappa Firearms facility.

Design is fundamental to obtain a high quality product, with production sizes that respect minimum allowance – in casting, presswork or machining. This means that the components of a replica firearms will have such a constantly precise size, that they may be employed on original firearms, while a blank firing arm will guarantee an excellent, steady reliability. Chiappa Firearms employs the CAD/CAM system, i.e. each component is designed and assembled on computer through 3-D simulation. After that, machining measures are transferred directly to the machining devices: this is the only way to obtain absolute precision.

COORD 3, a machine which detects measurements with extraordinary precision. Its feeler is able to reproduce anything into a 3-D computerized drawing – for instance an original antique weapon.
