      WHICH ONE IS IT

        Anonymous

        It's a meme. A wannabe mateba bought by weebs and boomers who never shoot their guns. If you just want a collectors piece then whatever but I don't frequently buy guns that I'd be afraid to fire often.

          this one fricking image is posted literally every time the rhino is mentioned. Not a recurring issue with multiple examples and evidence, just this one specific image. Why do you think that is?

            It’s just the con of the design. Conventional revolver would blow out from the top. The rhino has the chamber nearer to your hands, then add in the fact the frame is aluminum with only a steel insert backing, and you get a big mess if it does go kaboom.
            I think they did release a limited run of an all steel model at one point.

              I wish they'd make their match master 38 special in stainless steel for 357, real shame they went with alloy frames, but it's not nearly as explosive as a glock nade. The bullet.....the explosion cut forget the term, is closer to your hand on this gun, so it can be a problem.

    I was considering buying the PVD coated 30ds Nebula: do you think it is durable/requires extra care compared to black anodized version?

      This is my favorite configuration in respect to size since it doesn't have that ass ugly seam across the barrel shroud.

        >that ass ugly seam across the barrel shroud
        The whole gun is so goddam ugly that it becomes something not ugly. Still buy a .357 from anyone else, even EAA or taurus before you buy a rhino.

    seems cool never shot one but firing from bottom chamber means less muzzle flip

    For one the sheer amount of reduction in muzzle flip is pretty hard to believe until you actually shoot it next to another 357 mag. It makes Buffalo Barnes feel like 38 special cowboy loads. However, don't get one expecting it to feel as nice or smooth as an old S&W or Colt. Functionally it's great, but it doesn't have the sovl that classic revolvers have. It's build quality and finish are not bad, I would say its only slightly worse than my TRR8.

    Look cool but the amount of exploded to pieces rhino's pictures floating around is alarming.

    It's ok, but not worth the money. They shoot well despite the really bad DA trigger but the fit and finish is garbage compared to a smith or ruger.

      Seconding this. You're paying a lot more than the competition for a lower quality novelty. And while the 6 o'clock barrel design is cool and functional, the bad DA trigger will slow you down and negate the benefits of the lower muzzle rise.

    There’s a company that will bore one out to take 10mm magnum, 10mm auto, and 40 s/w and even though it’s pricey as hell I really want one….

      Is the frame rated for 10mm?

        They are very accurate and fun to shoot. They have very little muzzle flip, makes shooting full power 357 feel like shooting 9mm out of a full sized steel frame.

        It's rated for 357 magnum which is hotter than the hottest 10mm

    Fun, they recoil backwards instead of upwards and stay on target easier because of that

    got a 60ds nebula and they are fun, really nice recoil but mine is extremely picky with ammo, won't shoot S&B

      >won't shoot S&B
      As in it won't go off or is inaccurate? I know revolver accuracy in general are really sensitive to changes in powder load.

        It likes a soft primer, especially if the (extremely heavy by default) trigger is lightened

    Had one the DA sucked and one day the trigger locked up while shooting so I sold it right after

    How does the grip feel? Looks weird and awkward.

      its pretty good at it's job, by having your hand positioned higher on the gun your palm is in line with the bore thus helping with muzzle flip.

    Extremely cool, which should be justification enough. I have a lot of very cool guns, but I'd walk over and talk to you if I saw you at the range with one.

      My 60ds has been a great conversasion starter, and im happy to let the curious fudds at my range run a few cylinders through it. I will say my tx-22 gets more of an overwhelming positive reaction when I offer it to others to shoot.

    I've shot a 5" white rhino and they're incredible to shoot, there's no myth. The muzzle flick is nonexistent. But I might get a deagle instead after seeing anons talking about them exploding.

    I have a 60DS Nebula.

    It's fun and gets a lot of attention, but mine broke within one box of .357. The extractor plunger sheared in half, so the cylinder wouldn't lock up anymore. The replacement part (if you can find one) is like $2. Chiappa sent me a replacement part under warranty but it didn't fit my gun. I ended up having to send it in for repair. Customer service was entirely unresponsive via email. Calling is a must to get anywhere with them.

    The next time I shot .357 out of it after the repair, the front site fiber broke. Hardly a big deal, but annoying. The gun is clearly not designed well enough to withstand .357. They sent me a replacement front sight under warranty as well.

    No issues at all running .38 out of it yet.

    One thing to keep in mind is the warranty on these things is ONE YEAR. My warranty is up, so I'm hesitant to shoot .357 out of it anymore because any repair is on me to perform or pay for.

      >the front site fibe broke
      kek, I thought I was a unique case, I just repaired it my self because "lol chiappa" at least worst remmington sent me a lower front sight when my R1 shot 3 feet low at 10 yards.

    I want one. I have yet to see one locally anywhere, which isn't that big of a deal since I can buy online, but I'd really prefer to handle one first before I commit.
