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.
