    Wow it actually kinda looks like a rhino! I read a review on these in some magazine and it's actually supposed to be pretty nice since the bore axis is so much lower giving you more control. Plus the cylinder lies flatter than a normal round one for easier concealability.

    onlt place I have seen one is ABG in corvallis. It may be a great weapon but it looks like a movie prop. they also had the 454 casull rossi judge pistol, that thing was a brick.

    Been looking at these since they first came out....friend of mine that has a Mateba says the recoil is awesome because it pushes straight back (instead of back and up) since it fires from the bottom cylinder.

    Going to buy one when the price comes down to a realistic amount. Definately an oddball and thats what I like about it.

    When I first saw a picture of this, I thought it was the butt ugliest thing I had ever seen. Now it is kind of growing on me.

    I find it hard to get excited about something made by or imported by Chiappa. Just saying...

    I'll stick with my Smith and Wessons. Interesting concept but the revolver's simplicity is why people like them.
