Shooting this Rhino for three years. With 38 Specials and 357 Mags. Over 8,000 rounds. Never a problem. Daughter like shooting it at the range. She even shoots it with 357 Mags! OK grouping for a short little barrel. 357 mags make a 5 foot flame halo. This is my CCW with 357 mag loaded.

This is a sweet revolver. It's so ugly that it's beautiful! Fun to shoot. Very happy with the purchase.

This revolver is awesome,precise and very stable, no matter if you use .357 or .38 special. Very recommended for conceal carry weapon and no recoil at all. Definitely better than a lot pistols.Recommended.

This is an awesome snub nose. A 357 round feels likes a 38. I could shoot 100's of rounds without a thought. A negative. Opening the cylinder is not completely smooth. This could me and it may take a bit of time to work on my technique. Otherwise, if you are looking for a 357 snub, I would put it your list to consider.

I absolutely love my chiappa rhino. It does not kick at all!!. I could shoot this all day long and I would maybe get a sore finger. I use this as my conceal carry. I will never carry anything else. The '10lb" trigger pull is so easy and smooth to use. Can't say enough how much I love it. I have several people that want one now. Thank you

Just fired this Chiappa Rhino 200 DS yesterday and was very impressed. It has been years since I fired a 357 mag. From a longer barreled revolver, but I do recall a much larger kickback than what I experienced with the Chiappa. The 38 special rounds were very comfortable and accurately placed on the target and the 357 rounds were almost as comfortable. Shot for 1/2 hour with no discomfort. I am very happy with this product and it’s overall quality. I feel it is just about a perfect concealed carry for me.

This is my first revolver and I only own handguns made by Heckler & Koch. Let me tell you this Rhino 200DS is up there in quality with H&K products. And the trigger is fantastic. The design is different to anything else out there. I think is looks awesome and people ask me about it all the time at the shooting range. The recoil is so different, and so unique that it is my gun of choice at this moment. There is no way to compare a revolver trigger with a semi-automatic pistol, but this revolver has the best trigger of all the handguns I own. My HK VP9's trigger is awesome and this Rhino 200DS' trigger is fantastic, I like it more. I will be getting the Rhino with a 3 inch barrel once they make it in black. But for now this one will do just fine.

After about 250 rounds through it, no problems. But the manual of arms takes some getting used to. Can't hold this revolver like any other as you have to avoid the gasses coming out of that bottom-shooting barrel. A teacup grip seems safest and works since recoil is much more straight back than up. No adjustable rear sight, just a notch, but accurate enough as long as you're not shooting past 10 yards, which you wouldn't anyway with a 2" snub. I find I have to aim a little low to compensate for that low barrel. Very lightweight and carries much easier in the included leather pancake holster than you would anticipate. Overall, a very different and interesting pistol.
