Rhino is the first revolver with a truly modern trigger system, designed for a serial, industrial production. The cocking of the single action is made through a pin and not though the hammer, whose position is very low (like no other handgun). This pin moves a lever which never interferes with the trigger pull and goes back in its original position after cocking the hammer. All the devices designed on the entire cycle of the trigger pull system allow for greater fluidity, lightness and steadiness when shooting. Additional to all the standard safeties of modern revolvers, Rhino features brand new safeties. To avoid accidental pressing of the hammer, the handgun in single action mode is blocked and shooting is prevented. Premature shot in case the cylinder has not completed its rotation is prevented by a pin which is connected to the cylinder and functions at the same time as trigger stop. The rotation of the cylinder is not operated by the “rotation star” in the extractor, but by pins of tempered steel fixed in the cylinder itself – this solution prevents the parts in rotation to be subject to the wear and tolerance of the extractor. Finally, the cylinder lock is linked to the trigger and prevents shooting if the cylinder is not blocked in the correct position. Rhino’s unusual shape makes it difficult to recognize as a weapon. Even when it is carried in a pocket of light fabric, it is not easy to identify it as a revolver. The trigger system designed by Ghisoni is an absolute innovation allowing for a very compact revolver shape. Thanks to these mechanical attributes, Rhino is 1.5 cm shorter than any revolver of equivalent caliber and barrel length. The Rhino is perfect to wear concealed regardless if it is under the arm, belt, or even with a ankle holster. The frame is made of Ergal, an excellent, high resistance light aluminum alloy. Its special feature is that the breech bottom made of steel and is mounted to the frame through a dovetail insert. Grips are interchangeable on all models, and are made of neoprene or wood. Defense revolver, offers great concealability thanks to a very unusual profile. The flat cylinder grants maximum comfort. The new Chiappa Rhino barrel is aligned with the bottom most chamber which is the key component to Rhino's tame characteristics. The position of the barrel lowers the center of gravity and yields a centerline of the bore more in line with the shooter's arm allowing for the most natural "point ability" while engaging a target. This characteristic also drastically reduces both recoil and muzzle flip which insures subsequent shots to be on target faster than ever before. The reduction of the recoil allows for the use of ultra light alloys to be used in the construction of the Rhino minimizing any adverse effect. The flat sided cylinder design of the Rhino reduces the typical revolver profile allowing greater concealment. Featuring both double and single action characteristics, the single action is actuated by a hammer cocking device that engages the unexposed hammer to prepare to fire.
