I had my first opportunity to hold a Rhino---the revolver that has the barrel below the ejection rod.
Odd/facinateing/thoughtful are words that come to my mind to describe my thought pattern on this development.
I don't care for the lightweight material from which it is constructed--but then, again, I don't care for small light weight revolvers or semi-autos.
The gun is D/A-S/A and I like that. The hammer is an odd little thing. It is a short but wide little thing. At first it seems clumbsy but it is a short cocking and easy process--still kind of odd as the hammer falls to rest while still remaing cocked. It does have a cocked indicator though.
D/A pull is short and very easy.
I was both facinated by holding the weapon and ill at ease at the same time, knowing the barrel was on the bottom. Now, actually, I kind of like the thought and reasoning behind the change.
The grip was easy and nice---but like the gun--it is odd and not pleasing to my eye.
Every thing about this revolver is a little/has some quirky look/design to it, from the shape of the cylinder to the cylinder release. Not bad just quirky.
Now the cylinder realease was both odd and not appealing in looks or function.
I might purchase the gun if it were produced in an all steel model.
Blessings

Wm, I thought from the subject you were going across the water to hunt ......

I've been waiting to hear someone speak about one of these revolvers...I will probably view it much as you....I am a traditionalist.

I saw a picture of the internal workings and wow are they way more complicated than any revolver should be. It is an interesting idea, but seems like it would be more prone to breakage than a traditional revolver.

Thx for the review. I too had looked a few times, but never tried. It seems like an all steel would hold a lot more popularity definitely. Too many composites etc these days for me. I haven't seen any issues with my wife's "Pink Lady" though and it shoots stellar, so might just be a perception thing. ;)

I've handled them but never shot one. I guess the concept of having the barrel bellow the ejector to reduce muzzle flip is sound. I just can't get past the ugly factor.
