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.

I have the 5" version. Shot it accurately 'out of the box'. No quality issues. Very little muzzle flip with .357 158gr, 13.9gr Unique behind it.

I have read that the design had growing pains, but it is adult now.

Double action trigger pull is heavy, but feels no heavier than my Tanfoglio Witness. That female must have weak hands. The cocking lever action is also heavy, but when using a 'standard' 2 hand shooting grip, the pull is no problem for the off hand thumb. Single action trigger is clean and not heavy.

About the only thing I found disconcerting is that after the gun is cocked, the lever returns to the down position. It is near the center of your vision when the gun is 'presented' of course, so it takes a little getting used to.

The barrel and cylinder are the only massive parts of the gun that are steel; the frame and barrel shroud are aluminum alloy. Makes for a light gun; if it were a conventional revolver it would be 'lively' in the hand while shooting. I have a holster purchased from Chiappa US, and the gun carries easily; the 2" version ought to be easily concealable.

The firing mechanism has quite a few parts in it, but probably not a multiple of the parts in a 'standard' double/single action revolver. The engineering problems had to do with design, not number of parts.

Note: the gun comes with three moon-clips. I don't know why.

Purchased the gun from Bud's Gun shop, along with their extended 'lifetime' warranty.
