When I was down in the USA for a 2700, I let a couple of the people there shoot my Chiappa Rhino 60DS (I had brought it along, but didn't use it in competition). The looks on their faces while shooting it were priceless.

One of the shooters is quite accomplished with a revolver, and befuddled is probably the best description of his look. He described the trigger as quite good and the recoil as "Not wrong, but strangely and unexpectedly different."

He and the match director then proceeded to have a discussion if it would even be allowed in DR.

Now it seems that Chiappa is taking the idea of revolver competition seriously.

Seems to be put together by a British company that makes a 120DS long gun version. That is a 12" barrel and extension under the grip to meet British long pistol rules.

So the grips are supposedly available, the front shroud is custom so that the Aristocrat sight rail can be installed.

Looking to get the grips for my Rhino. Would be nice to have a way to mount the rail on the standard 60DS.

And I don't know what differentiates the .38 spl version from the .357 standard version.

But for how hard it would be to mount an optic on a gun that takes top loading mags, I'd think the FAS6007 would be more interesting:  https://www.chiappafirearms.com/product.php?id=463

Link doesn't appear to work - I get a page w/ snap caps, moon clips, and a pistol cleaning kit, not a .38 caliber revolver.

Works for me.
Make sure you select "EN" for language if you don't see that page. If you select "USA" it's not in the products list as the model does not ship to the USA.

Also found that you can force the language/region choice:

I shoot a FAS607. The model on which the FAS6007 is based.
In a world with Pardini's, Walther GSPs, SSP, Matchguns MG2's, the FAS doesn't stand out as odd.
