    It looks like it was designed by a comity.

    I just noticed, that the thing fires from the bottom of the cylinder---very strange.

    Firing from the bottom of the cylinder may help reduce felt recoil and muzzle jump but that thing is so ugly it almost makes an RG look good.

    I'm curious what the firing mechanism is like. The hammer is on top, yet the round fires through the bottom... That would be fun to see

    Kinda cool looking, I wouldnt say its ugly more as its just unique. Would be cool to shoot it though and see how it functions. It does look like a rhino though.
