Looking for a new polymer framed revolver? Â The new Chiappa Poly Lite RhinoÂ was recently shown to wholesalers at the National Association of Sporting Goods Wholesalers (NASGW) Expo. Â The new gun is a derivation of the existing Rhino line, but with some significant differences.
The PolyLite Rhino will be available only in .38 Special, not in .357 Magnum like the other revolvers in this series of guns. Â Presumably, the polymer is not strong enough to handle the repeated shooting of Magnum pressures. Â It is not yet known if the revolver will be rated for the +P loads, or standard pressure only.
