Notice how careful he is about keeping fingers away from the bottom of the cylinder.

I do not see anything about that on their web site:

But their web site does not mention the nickel plated ones either and they have been for sale on gunbroker for a while.

I like there concept of this new revolver. I wish I had enough funds to get one of these. They look really accurate.

I had one in .357 Mag for 3 days about a year ago. Bought used off the internet. Returned it due to condition issues. Trigger was heavy, maybe 10 pound pull as I recall. Recoil was as you see, minimal even w/ 357's. The video shows use of moon clips like my 625 Smith. My version wasn't set up that way. Conversion would've cost $150 including shipping @ TK Custom and then moon clips @ about $5 each on top of that. Granted that work was classified as "custom" back then and priced accordingly. Mechanically complex and essentially double action only. My biggest issue was with Chiappa Corp. Sent several e-mails questioning availibility of holsters, etc because there was nothing in the commercial market. Got ZERO response, ever. Even talked w/ Saul at Double Alpha about inserts for the RaceMaster holster I use for USPSA. He responded from Europe in under 12 hours and said not enough interest to work up tooling. All this may have changed but it left a bitter enough taste that I won't be going back. No excuse for NO response.
