Chiappa Rhino: .357 Magnum Bottom Feeder




What do you think about this video?

Alexander Stucky: It's a 5 inch barrel I believe.

Tesfa-Mikeal Cushnie: What an awesome looking revolver. I wish I could join the N.R.A. and go hunting with high-powered weapons; Americans have all the fun.

Luke Shoemaker: Good lookin' guns.

Mad Dawg: Oh, yeah- it kicks backwards into the hands; but with almost no muzzle flip/rise. Back on target quickly. Some prefer how it kicks; others don't. YMMV. Oh, the 6 inch has 4 cutouts over the barrel, and has a built in rail OVER and UNDER... It is quite accurate.

27Turo: It's the same as any other gun, the sights are always going to be higher than the barrel. It's just that this gun's sights are a little higher than most. The gun will shoot where the sights are pointed as long as it's sighted in.

brutusbruno: Ugly as sin!

The Shooter's Mindset: I would like to shoot one. However I doubt I'd ever own one.

Enzovoj: Just one Question? The Rhino reminds me of the old Mateba Unica Revolver, which also shoots from the bottom chamber. So...Same Designers? Or just a coincidence? Also would like to know how reliable the inner mechanism is? (I am sorry about my english)

LEXPIX: That's one cool wheel gun thee.

John Hope: The ugliest revolver on planet earth

iamcondescending: no... as long as your sights are lined up properly it doesn't matter where the barrel is...

Jack T: That is the ugliest gun ever, but it's so ugly that I like it. Reminds you of something from the year 3000.

FirearmPatriot: They are bad looking!

Mad Dawg: That's the 5 inch barrel that has 3 cutouts over the barrel. The 6 inch has 4 cutouts over the barrel, fully adjustable rear sights and is a "target" version. I enjoy shooting this thing- the 6 inch; and it looks mean too. Budget in for the LARGE grips - it makes the larger versions feel so much better. I prefer shooting in single action mode more than double action.

mruler360: It looks like a gun a Terminator or RoboCop would be using. Pretty cool.

b scar: Rented the 2" one in .357. The gun still kicks, it just kicks it back into your wrist rather than flipping the muzzle; almost like shooting a semi-auto. If you don't rooster the hammer back, the trigger is god-awful heavy from my perspective. The .38 was much better shooting than the .357, and if you have carpal tunnel, you don't want this gun. I shot a box of each and my wrist felt sore for a few days afterwards.

David Markland: The 50 DS is a 5 inch barrel

Harrison Wilbanks: i personally think that is an ugly gun

FirearmPatriot: I think I just saw the rhino in the trailer for the remake of Total Recall!

FirearmPatriot: LOL!

TheFireArmGuy: I have my eye, and bid, on one right now. Love the design and concept. Been hooked for a while and now its time to jump

John Parker: that thing makes glocks look pretty.

The Lone Patriot 111: Sick looking gun

ant man: oh ok yea it just throws me off its definitely a character of a gun

beerscientist357: That looks like some kind of video game gun. It would look pretty sweet with a baonette.

megaohmz: I love the design. Mekes you wonder what took so long to come up with it. What a great concept. I need one!

FirearmPatriot: I spotted one in the new Total Recall movie trailer. The are certainly futuristic looking.

Klingon00: I wanted to like these, I may have even gotten over their strange looks but then I started reading reviews of them having light primer strike issues that take multiple trips to the manufacturer to fix (And sometimes "fix" is relative term here). Also I understand the roostering lever is extremely difficult to operate for those who want that sort of thing.

Sean Turkot: i would own one. and shoot one. that thing looks mean and it just takes some time to get use to it really. i love Revolvers and the 357 magnum is one of my favorite cartriges to shoot!! that thing looks like its out of a mad max movie!! lol!!

Boomstick898: Maybe ugly but when people are shooting at you, that piece can save you.

FirearmPatriot: Not sure how that would work.

amacro11: Very interesting!

W351D3: I'm glad to hear it comes with a holster, I was wondering about that

JAYcovey706: cooooool

ebomey: They are sweet looking revolvers!

Israel Tucker: funny looking lil fellas

ant man: idk how id feel about it shooting from the bottom wouldnt you have to aim high to hit what your aiming at

w Crane: to big

Fanculification: Chiappa in italian means Ass.... lol

matttheman33: I've got one black finish 6 inch barrel I love it

FirearmPatriot: Yes. Same designer. Of course, the Mateba Unica Revolver was semi-automatic. I saw one for sale recently. I believe it brought a substantial price. I have not reviewed the gun so I cannot attest to reliability.

FirearmPatriot: If you watch the trailer to the new Total Recall, the Rhino is being used in that movie. I have never shot it but people that have tell me the felt recoil reduction is remarkable. Like shooting a .38 Special. I hope you win the auction!

FirearmPatriot: People usually hate or love it. Not much in between.

SupaFlyFatGuy859: That gun looks CRAZY intimidating! LOL

MakingMasterClass: Really cool guns. I would love to have a 4 inch version. Thanks Russ.

FirearmPatriot: Thanks for the information. I have yet to shoot one.

gurney85: why do I feel like I need one of these in the 2" variety?

deaconaoak3: .The sights are designed to compensate for the barrel position. There might be an issue with point and shoot if you don't practice often or if you practice with several different guns

CFOofEVIL: I'd love to shoot, let alone hold one these to see how it feels.

EMT: Thanks! They sometimes skip corners and take the easy way. If they ever did that, I suggest you consult with a paralegal or lawyer. This way they won't be able to cheat you.
