Rhino replica revolver promises .357 Magnum with .38 Wadcutter recoil

From at the SHOT Show, here's a video from Chiappa Firearms about a new 1886 Winchester replica lever-action and a new revolver replica called the Rhino.
"The Rhino - Chiappa reinvents the revolver. Shooting from its bottom chamber, it features a lower barrel virtually eliminating muzzle flip. Comes in both full size and snub-nose concealable models."
What's promised is a 6-shot .357 Magnum snubnose or 6" vent-rib barrel revolver with the recoil of .38 Wadcutters. It shoots from the bottom chamber of the wheel, which Chiappa says eliminates muzzle flip and felt recoil. Sounds good to me. If this is true, they're gonna sell a lot of Rhinos.
