Default Chiappa Rhino Revolver

Maybe I've not been paying attention, but a revolver that shoots from the the bottom of the cylinder?

I sure never heard about it before, it does look interesting. It must be designed for those used to using small semi autos, or why else the grip instructions?

The grip is important to avoid blast gas from the rear of the cylinder.

Hey, joec. Check out some of the reproduction rifles!

There was an artical on them in the American Rifleman some time back. The big advantage over a conventional revolver is the speed of fallow up shots, due to stright line recoil and not muzzle flip, even with potent loads. The precived recoil is also lighter cause of this as well. Interesting design for sure. The grips look like an after thought though....

Regards, Kirk

When first learning to shoot a revolver at about age twelve, one of the lessons drummed into me had to do with keeping all
parts of my hand behind the cylinder gap. The alternative was suffering some nasty burns ... which of course, I did learn
the hard way anyhow!

"Move along - nothing to see here!"

Ditto AND Ditto. Thats why it surprised me, I figured anyone that has ever shot a revolver most likely learned at least one of the ways.
