Well ya'll can talk and talk, but I think it butt ephen ugly. If it reduces muzzle flip that's great and I can see how that may be physiologically possible, but muzzle flip has never been a problem for me. I do not need my firearms to look cool only work to the best of my ability to use them accurately.

Not to be adversarial stovepipe and you can tell me to take a leap if you want, no harm no foul, but I sincerely doubt that a barrel on the bottom blocks anymore gas from escaping than a barrel on top. I think the critical factor in gas escape is the opening , or space between the cylinder and the barrel. No in looking at the picture it appears to me that they have engineered this handgun with a very close fit, but I would have to see and measure one to be fully satisfied that it is better than what I have.

Ah, ok. Just saying in relation to the grip if the bore is on the bottom the frame blocks more gas than if it were at the top. As Aloy had a concern with flame cutting on the hands due to proximity of the bore to the hand.

Bore above cuts down the angle more, allows more room for something to be hit by said gasses.

Bore at the bottom delefects it more, bottom strap is closer to the grip. Albeit the proximity is closer.

It's like pie-ing a corner with a HG. Farther from the corner cuts down the angle giving you more visual and room to engage threat's on the other side of the cover.

Hugging a corner blocks your view.

Fine point, I know....

And I'd never tell ya ta take a leap Les, yer my buddy! Very Happy

OK that is a valid point and now I understand what you were saying.

Now let me tell you about the first time I fired my .357 Ruger Service six, and not using my left hand for the next three days.

The shorter barrel version is much nicer to look at.

That's actually .357 in a 2" barrel, doesn't look like it but it is. You'd think that would just hurt,
the handle is weird.

Hear ya Les. My 2" had a boot grip on it, even with a glove full house was damn near impossible to light off more than once and that would about ruin the rest of your session. Has a Pachmayer Compac on it now....now you can shoot two full house rounds w/o ruining your day! hahaha.


Rhinos got what the orriginal didnt have, perfect grip angle, A hi-ride BEAVER TAIL- hmmm, where've I seen that before, great LOP to trigger and angle. I'd slap that puppy in a pancake and feel very well protected thank you very much! And since it's concealed who cares how it looks let the dork looking at the wrong end worry about that.

HAPPY NEW YEAR SUZ!

I'm with slimjim on this; it's no uglier than many other handguns - just different.
I'm not keen on the rails, though there are versions without them.

I was interested in these - until I saw what the trigger mechanism looks like. That seems way complicated and not very durable. Looks to me like a failure waiting to happen.

Suz...now that little fella don't look as ugly as its bigg brother...it just looks mean and angry...lookin' fer a fight to win.

I'm with you Stovey...pop this little guy in a pancake and I would be happy. All the bad guy is gonna be concerned with is the big hole in the front end. He will be lookin' down that hole and hopin' that nothin' is gonna come rushin' out of it at a great rate of knots to punch a hole in his body and make it leak buckets of red "life". Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Laughing Laughing

Cheers, Vince

Lookin' around at the way things have been going makes me sad to say you may be right, but like many of the new trends it only makes me hope that nature takes it's due course and I'm not around to see it.

"This is the revolver of the future." ?? If memory serves me this has been tried before and it didn't take then and I doubt that it will this time either.

A short lived novelty...
