    I will wait on the reviews and sure won't be first in line. Most folks I know that have shot the Rhino have had good things to say about it though.

    Sounds promising. Can't wait to see one.

    I hope it's built better than their .22 1911's :puke:

    Their Rhino revolver looks to be pretty good. I would imagine this 1911 should take the same QC.

    I too didn't care for their 1911-22 guns.

    Chiappa seem good at lifting ideas from other places...Company called NGC had a similar design a while back, it was a conversion kit with a barrel that pinned to your frame.
    Played with the Rhinos at Shot. They might handle well but they feel like air soft versions of the original Mateba revolver

    Interesting, but not thank you; it is definitely not my cup of tea.

    Someone explain the physics of the delayed blowback and the reasoning behind it. Please.

    In a blowback gun, the barrel is fixed and both the projectile and the spent casing move at the same time in opposite directions. The breech is not locked and is free to move back. The momentum of the bullet and the gases pushing the empty against the breech cause the gun to cycle.

    In a delayed blowback, the cycling is very slightly slowed down by not using all the energy available. Venting gases reduces the force available to push the cartridge back against the breech.

    In a 1911, it is a delayed recoil operation since the barrel imparts momentum to the slide. The breech is locked by the barrel locking lugs when the gun goes bang. The slide starts to move (only about 0.10 inch) when the explosion happens but the barrel isn't fully unlocked and linking down until the bullet is gone.

    so the theory is that, since the motion of the slide is delayed, it imparts greater accuracy as the barrel stays on target longer?

    That and less felt recoil, less things banging around so the frame can be lighter for small calibers. As you increase the energy of the round, you have to start beefing up the platform.

    The Chiappa .22 has a fixed barrel and is very accurate but is a piece of crap compared to a GSG .22.

    Kruzr thank you for that detailed explanation.

    I'm sure Fish appreciates it too. Lol
