Rhino Trigger kits (does anyone have one?)

I need to send back my new Chiappa Rhino 2" because the chambers are off spec (too big / different sizes).

I was able to talk to a Chiappa Rep. with regards the trigger kits that they used to sell in their website

According to the rep. they are avoiding to install them because of people complaining of light primer strikes.

Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find much info googling... I would like to know if the people complaining were experienced reloader using softer/sensitive primers like Federal... or people buying ammo from walmart.

I really want to lighten the trigger and make it more competition friendly (IDPA), but if it's not reliable under any type of primers/ammunition... then, it might not be worth it

So, does anyone own one.. or know of someone that had a stage II or II trigger done?

I'm actually surprise there is not a larger group of people owning them by now...

Rhino Trigger Kits

I own a White Rhino and asked their service group about the trigger job for it. They replied,

"We will not put stage 2 or 3 trigger kits in 2" Rhino's. They are for competition guns only and will only reliably ignite Federal 100 primers used in competition reloads.

If you have a Rhino after serial number R01900 you already have the equivelent of a stage 1 trigger.

Certainly not the same as a trigger kit, but I would buy some snap caps and shoot stuff on TV while you are sitting there. It will smooth itself out working the action.
