The Chiappa Rhino has revolutionized the revolver with its patented design. Typical revolvers fire from the top-most chamber which is aligned with the barrel. The Rhino, however, fires from the 6:00 cylinder and the barrel is aligned with this bottom-most chamber. The lower barrel position is key to the Rhino's low-recoil characteristics as it lowers the center of gravity and yields a centerline of the bore that is more in line with a shooter's arm, allowing for the most natural pointability while engaging a target.
The 2" Rhino defense revolver offers great concealability due to its very unusual profile. The flat cylinder allows for maximum comfort while reducing the typical revolver profile for greater concealment. The 2" Rhino has both single and double-action characteristics. When operated in the single-action mode, the hammer does not stay back as with a traditional revolver. This handgun features a red fiber-optic front sight with a rear groove and comes with the original factory hard case. Its grips, metal, and bore are all in very good condition.
