    Wink Chiappa Rhino




    What up fellas,
    So I finally picked up a new toy for my collection.
    A Chiappa Rhino 20ds (steel finish)
    This gun had my attention for awhile now.
    I've been to 5 gun shows looking for this gun without success.
    But this past weekend I wasn't even in the buliding for 2 mins when I saw it.

    I love the feel, the look, the weight, pretty much everything about it LoL.
    I took it to the range the next day, only thing I didn't like was.... Why do gunshop over price their ammo? LOL
    The gun performed great without issues. The cocking lever is a bit tough to pull but it's a matter of getting use to it, just like gripping it. The tamed recoil felt great, trigger is a bit heavy (which I like) but they offer an upgraded trigger that will lighten it a bit. Never had that much fun shooting 357 mag. I own a Ruger SP 101 and after 25 rounds, not so fun, so I barley take it out anymore.

    Now as a carry gun, maybe? But It's hard to replace my M&P40. LOL

    So overall I love this gun and already saving up for the 40ds.

    I have had some interest in the Rhino for some time now. I hope you'll keep us posted on how yours works out for you JXONE.

    That thing looks darn near impossible to conceal. I fondled a different model in my LGS and it does have a certain wow factor.

    They look like something out of a sci-fi movie. Keep us updated.

    They might be excellent firearms, but they are butt ugly.

    I like the concept. Thanks for posting about how it shoots. I have the SP101 and I agree, 357 mags can be brutal.

    They seem like they'd be impractical for concealed carry. Method for lowering bore axis is interesting. Bizarre looking, but not ugly.

    Definitely a cool piece.

    They may be ugly, but where there's a will, there is a way to conceal them. I'd like to shoot a Rhino.

    I wonder how much less recoil they have than my S&W 327. A revolver with very low recoil in its own right.

    Congrats on the new gun. Expensive little rascals, aren't they.

    Not a revolver guy anyway, but the Rhino is just a little too "Bladerunner" looking for my old school tastes. JMO.

    Since I can't afford a Rhino, I'm having my SP101 .327 Mag. ported .Will see how it works when it comes back and will post a thread on it. Like the looks of this curious Rhino and could end up with one... someday!
