- Low bore axis
- Tame recoil
- Sight height over bore
- Complex internals
The Chiappa Rhino uses a unique design that aligns the barrel with the bottom cylinder chamber rather than the top one. This results in a low bore axis that makes the gun incredibly comfortable to shoot as far as revolvers go.

It disappeared for a bit…but it’s back. The Python has made a triumphant return and builds onto Colt’s Snake Gun series. This revolver is a decent wheelgun that admittedly had some kinks on first launch, but those seem to be worked out. It offers a modern stainless steel barrel while keeping to that classic Python look. It’s accurate and a stunningly fun gun to shoot.
The King Cobra is Colt’s revival of the medium-framed magnum revolver from their older “snake gun” lineup. While it may be a fairly standard 6-shot, 3-inch barreled revolver, it comes in at a price point similar to that of its competitors. This means you get the name value that comes with owning a Colt product without having to pay a premium for it.
“The Rhino is a good gun. It’s more than just a low barrel profile. The gun features excellent controls and ergonomics, a decent trigger, and several innovations that leave most revolvers in the dust. The Rhino isn’t perfect, but I’ll be damned if it isn’t my current favorite revolver.” – Travis Pike
