I have a Chiappa Rhino, .357/.38, 2 in, and while I was shooting it, the trigger assy and the whole gun started binding up. The cylinder wouldn't turn, and it got harder to squeeze to the point that even empty, the pistol wouldn't function.
I took it apart to see what might be going on, and they are complicated things! After disassembly, nothing was broken or bent, so I put it back together and now it works flawlessly! Maybe something did bind, but the service I did loosened it up.
Has anyone else have one of these, and had any trouble out of them? Its a great CC pistol, and the leather holster carries the pistol high on the belt and out of the way.

How much lube was in it when it started binding?

It was dry inside, and according to Chiappa it should be dry inside. I did put a touch of graphite in at certain pivot and sliding points though.

That's weird! Mfr. says no lube. :eek:

What's next? Bill Clinton saying he did have sex with that woman? :rolleyes:

So you didn't find anything to cause seizing. Is it possible something so tiny fell out you couldn't notice?
