Chiappa Rhino 40SAR 357 Magnum 4in Nickel Plated Revolver – 6 Rounds – The Rhino Revolver is now offered in a Single Action Only version specifically legal for sale in California. (SAR – Single Action Rhino) The Rhino revolver design features a lower bore axis compared to other revolvers. This means the barrel is directly in line with the shooters hand, wrist and arm. This results in almost no muzzle rise and, because energy is better absorbed and controlled by the entire arm, it reduces the amount of recoil felt by the shooter. In addition, the alignment also gives the shooter a more natural point of aim. Shoot it and feel the difference!
The Rhino fires from the bottom of the cylinder rather than the top. This dramatically reduces muzzle rise and recoil felt by lowering the axis of the bore almost to the palm of the shooters hand. An aluminum alloy frame and barrel shroud make the it lightweight and easy to carry. Its accessory rails on the bottom of the barrel easily allow mounting lights or lasers. The snag resistant hammer is actually a cocking device because of the Rhino’s innovative completely enclosed firing mechanism which can be fired either single or double action. A cocked indicator is clearly visible to indicate the internal hammer status. Another innovation is the hexagonal cylinder which keeps the revolver’s width to a minimum. It comes with an easy to see fiber optic front sight.
