Chiappa firearms

Has anyone ever heard anything about this company? I was looking for a 1911 that might be small enough for my granddaughter. She's 12 and will be turning 13 at Christmas time. I can't justify the cost of the typical brands and saw this manufacturer in my search. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

I see lots of them up here. Not my cup of tea but they seem to be popular.

My granddaughter already shoots some and is really a very good shot with her rifle, but it seems the pistol that her father, my son, has her shooting is a tad bit too thick for her hands. Can't recall what that is right now though but thought maybe a smaller 1911 in 22lr might be something she could handle

For what it's worth, my kids (11 and 13) shoot the Kimber Rimfire Target .22 very well. It is a full sized 1911 with an aluminum frame and slide, but I installed a short trigger and thinner (though not actual 'slim') grip panels. Honestly, it's a little large for them, but it doesn't give them any trouble.

I've finally been able to find a few reviews on this. Some bad, some good. But I have decided to pass on this one. I'm not willing to risk my granddaughter's live with this gun. Not sure if the reviews are actually over the top but I for one am not willing to take that chance. Thanks for all the help.
