    1. Agree. The grip looks like a 2×4, but it felt nice in the hand.

      If I had the money it costs I’d still probably buy something else, though.

  1. To be fair the thing looks way more complicated than it is, specially considering the hammer position. For the most part it’s fairly easy to service and replace parts in the clockwork as most stuff is just held in place without screws and you just have to remove that conveniently big side plate and nice cylinder design, the designers somehow managed to avoid filling the frame with tiny securing cross-pins, tiny springs and tiny plunger. Still prefer the design of the Super Redhawk, despite the myriad of aforementioned tiny springs and plunger it’s fairly easy to do a total disassemble and a has some really nice and creative design solutions.

  2. Aye, the Rhino may have a great deal going for it, as six-shot DA wheelguns go.

    But even the finest imaginable six-shot DA wheelgun is the answer to a question the marketplace hasn’t asked since automobiles had tailfins, and so I am mildly astonished every time I see one.

    It’s like an artifact from a parallel universe, where M1 Carbines with GI 30 round mags, Navy Thompsons with the 50 round drum, and side-by-side 12 gauge doubles with exposed hammers are the last word in long guns for CQB. Of course, looking at boxes of Prvi Partizan 8x33mm Kurz gives me the same strange feeling.
