At Shooting Supplies, we have always carried a great range of long barrel pistols and when the Taurus looked like it was coming to an end we thought that the long barrel revolvers were no more.
However we are pleased to say that is not the case, from Italy we have the answer, the brand new Chiappa Rhino in long barrel form.
Chiappa long barrel pistols
Two finishes Three finishes in the Chiappa long barrel pistols are available, black or chrome and now also available in the Nebula finish. There is also a choice of three different calibres, 9mm, 357 or 44.
These long barrel pistols have an unusual design for a revolver, as the barrel comes off the bottom cylinder. This changes the balance of the pistol and changes the way it recoils. Instead of giving muzzle flip like any other revolver, it pushes the whole pistol back, which enables faster target acquisition after a shot making it ideal for practical pistol competitions.
The Chiappa long barrel pistol comes already machined for moon clips (3 included) and has a brilliant set of fibre optic sights fitted. It also has a Picatinny rail machined into the barrel so you can fit a red dot sight without needing any extra rails.
Finally, the trigger can be used in single or double action, and on single has a light crisp pull for those more accurate shots.
We also have a holster available and different colour grips are available off the shelf.
22 Long barrel pistols
Alongside the Chiappas we also keep a good selection of 22LR long barrel pistols. With Walther throwing their hand in the ring recently with the Walther PPQ, we have also seen a second arrive on the market in 2018 with the Walther 1911 gold cup.
This looks like a Colt 1911, however, it is a bit more refined than GSGs attempt at a replica of the well-known pistol.
At not much more than the GSG and with 12 round mags and extensions available, for those people looking for a bit of inexpensive fun, it makes it the perfect piece of kit. Of course, we also stock the original Walther PPQ at the premium end of the market for those people looking to compete at a slightly higher level.
Finally, at the budget end of the market, there is still a place for the GSG version of the 1911, available in black, (tan) flat dark earth or silver sided slide.
We also stock a full range of new and used air pistols.
