A semiauto Rhino.  That deserves a closer look

Oh snap! Chiappa Rhino recoil with CZ-75 ergos and striker? Yeah, my competition friends will devour this if it lives up to its claims. And the sights don't move when the slide reciprocates.

Clearly a competition built gun and clearly they are trying to eat CZ's lunch.

I just looked professor and say an MSRP of $5k.  Is a race gun.  Not for me although interesting.

at this price no wonder that I could not find a price posted anywhere. Stops the daydreaming cold.
BTW if it will be 5K in the US , then it will be much higher at the EU....

Ouch.

Mind you, I'm not against expensive guns, I'm an H&K fan, afterall.    My daily carry is a USP45 Expert. . .but for $5k, I doubt there's anything on that pistol or anything that pistol can do that makes it worth the $$.

Well. . .unless you just want to show it off to all the other IPSC'ers.
