Chiappa Rhino Post of the Day: Initial Run Sold Out

Chiappa Firearms President Ron Norton tells TTAG that the initial run of Rhinos has sold out. “We sent out a hundred,” Norton said. “We’re currently on back order.” The Rhino’s Stage One trigger kits—promising to transform the snubbie’s ten-pound trigger pull into something a lot more manageable—are starting to come in from Italy. Chiappa says they’ll ship us a prototype this week or next; our review will follow soon thereafter. The six inch barrel Rhino is also due off the boat, looking to ship in November. “We’ll have the four and five inch barrels in early 2011,” Norton reveals. Meanwhile, don’t get to thinking that this is a mass production deal; Chiappa plans to sell 5000 units in the first year. [Click here to read our review.]

    5000 Rhinos? I think these will be hotter (and more scarce) than next-gen iPhones or signed, 1st Edition Harry Potter books. I know they could several times as many if they wanted to.

    In the meantime, I can’t wait to get my finger on that Stage 1 trigger.
