Butt Ugly, but nice to shoot.. Traded for this today, very low recoil, fun to shoot...357 6 shot.
Have you jammed it in your waistband yet? How heavy is it?
Damn that's ugly
But I bet it conceals well..
Those things are about as ugly as a Swiss K-31.
And like the K-31, shoot extremely well.
Words escape me! But then, I'd sure like to shoot one of those revolvers, if only to get an opinion for my obituary diary that states. "Yup, Dennis actually shot a CHIAPPA RHINO."
Try as I may, I just can't imagine that even "engraving" would make that sucker more appealing.
I've seen car wrecks that looked better than that thing.
It did get good reviews in its 15 minutes of fame though and after all pretty really doesn't mean squat when it comes to protecting me and mine.
Yes came with an IWB holster,, 24 oz.
LOL to each his own.. Have you ever shot one?
I want one with butts engraved all over it.
I dig it - Thats just how Emilio Ghisoni designs his pistols.... Id rather have a Unica though..!
Coyote ugly and works reliably beats tacticool and fussy performance every day, twice on saturday and on the Sunday matinee.
I could get used to the design. Kinda minimalist.
This is a coyote ugly Chiappa pistol:
The FAS 6007 .22lr semiautomatic target pistol was developed in collaboration with professional shooters to significantly contribute to accuracy and handling during competitions. To optimize ergonomics, this pistol has many adjustable parts which can be precisely fit to the shooter for maximum balance, stability and control. The magazine is centrally located and inserted into the grip. Thanks to this magazine configuration the FAS 6007 has superior handling characteristics and the longest barrel possible for excellent accuracy and velocity."
I agree that is one of the "Ugliest" Revolvers I have ever seen!
But it also seems Griping it would be totally weird as well! Is there enough Grip to accommodate the Pinky Finger on the Grip?
But never shooting one I can not reflect an educated opinion of it! Just thinking!
No but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express once.
The grip does look extremely awkward, not sure exactly why, it does look like you can't get your pinky on it but that's not necessarily a deal killer.... It looks like in the design phase they said... " Oh yeah, we forgot about the grip... This will work, good enough"
And I Love Glocks to,,,,so......lol
Once I spend some time on the range with it I'll report back..
The grip on my friend's Rhino feels about like wrapping my fingers around a full size, 9 mm 1911. About the only way i can really describe it. He has a 4 inch White Rhino, and I have done a 'Shot for shot" comparison between it and the 686 I own, also 4 inch. .38 and .357.
There is a noticable difference in felt recoil between the two, with the WR having less, as it pushes in more of a straight, rather than back and upward, impulse. Also did the test with another friend's dad's 6 inch one, and my GP100, and his Rhino was a bit more pleasant to shoot with full power loads (Not that my tank isn't, but again, you feel a difference.)
I can get past the looks in favor of function (Hell, I own some odd s*** that works, but will never win a beauty contest), but I can get past the price difference on the local market (Comperable Rhinos run about $300 to $400 more than a conventional revolver in the same barrel length here), as when I can get a new Dan Wesson for less than a used Rhino, that makes it hard to justify. Hell, I can get a used GP100 as well as that new DW here, for what the Rhino runs, or a LNIB Pistol Pack for that matter.
