The new Chiappa Rhino has revolutionized the revolver with a patented design that tames the prehistoric characteristic that most revolvers possess. The new Chiappa Rhino barrel is aligned with the bottom most chamber which is the key component to Rhino's tame characteristics. The position of the barrel lowers the center of gravity and yields a centerline of the bore more in line with the shooter's arm allowing for the most natural "point ability" while engaging a target. This characteristic also drastically reduces both recoil and muzzle flip which insures subsequent shots to be on target faster than ever before. The reduction of the recoil allows for the use of ultra light alloys to be used in the construction of the Rhino minimizing any adverse effect. The flat sided cylinder design of the Rhino reduces the typical revolver profile allowing greater concealment. With choices from 2" to 6" barrel lengths and sight options, the Rhino is truly a multipurpose handgun capable of reliable defensive duty, scoring ten rings, and taking game.

It is funny how difficult it is to know from a photograph how a pistol with feel in the hand. The Chiappa Rhino with a 4" barrel nestles in my hand and has an instant balance. I thought the unusual revolver would take time to get used to. It does not. The gun points naturally making it a great piece for two-eyes open shooting where the sights become less and less important.

The cocking lever for single action shooting too small. I know they didn't want it to catch on anything for concealed carry applications, but leave the puny one on the 2" model and put something bigger on the 4, 5, 6" barrel models. With practice, I've been able to cock the pistol with one hand, but it's a chore. Why bother? Because
the single-action trigger is wonderful, allowing for good accuracy.

Speaking of accuracy, the 4" barrel Rhino is a tack-driver. No one mentions the tensioned barrel in the piece, which sits inside the aluminum shroud and is tensioned or stretched with bushings in front and back. It shoots like a pistol with a much longer barrel. The six o'clock location of the barrel, compared to the 12 o'clock position of other revolvers, does lessen felt recoil. Compared to other pistols of 4" barrel in .357 mag, you will feel a big difference, though my 4" Python is pretty close. The more in-line recoil made me get a pair of thin leather gloves to help soak up the smack from the grip hitting the heel of my hand.

All in all, I could not be happier and with Chiappa would consider bringing the Rhino out in .44 mag. The Mateba Auto-revolver, designed by the same man, came in .44 mag (and even .454 Casull) and must have sold more of them in .44 than other calibers because it's the most common.
