Chiappa Firearms' new Rhino revolver models
SHOT Show 2017 - The Charging Rhino and the White Rhino add up to Chiappa Firearms' revolutionary line of revolvers
At the time of its introduction, Chiappa's Rhino model marked a true revolution on the revolvers market, being the most innovative development in revolvers technology in decades.
Given the advancement of technology and the everchanging demands of the market, the Rhino revolver line has constantly been improved over the course of the past years.
New for 2017 are a couple of new entries in the Chiappa Rhino line of revolvers, including the Charging Rhino model. Developed for competition shooting, the Charging Rhino was developed in collaboration with IPSC/ICORE shooters to significantly contribute to the winning combination of speed an accuracy.
A double-action only full-size revolver chambered in 9x19mm, the Charging Rhino revolver comes with a black frame, a 6-rounds chromed cylinder and a 6-inch barrel, a tuned internal hammer for smoother action with no cocking status indicator and a lighter trigger pull (7.7 lbs / 3 kg) if compared with the previous Rhino models.
Chiappa's White Rhino is instead a limited production, very distinctive variant of the baseline Rhino concealed carry revolver.
Featuring a 3” barrel and either a SA/DA or SAO trigger, it also debuts a new and distinctive look. Cerakoted and then laser etched, the White Rhino’s frame is reminiscent of actual rhino hide. The cylinder is matte black.
The ergonomic, gray and black G10 laminate grip ties everything together and compliments the theme and colors of this unique and appealing handgun.
The 3” barrel length is great for both carry as well as home defense. This revolver is available in 2 calibers: 357 Magnum and 9x19mm.
