I remember those, the "Rhino", was supposed to put the bore centerline closer to the top of your hand to reduce firearm rotation when it fired.

I remember that too. Did it achieve that goal? I never would buy one to find out.

Looks like it has two rails... mount a low-power optic... lazer... light... maybe some extra weight under the muzzle if you're shooting a match.

Like y'all said, odd and ugly.

Eh maybe, but then you have the problem of the sight line being grossly distant from the bore centerline. With a short-distance firearm (you know, "pistol"), this can be annoying -- sight it in at 25yrds and it's worthless for 15 or 50 yard shooting.

So.. yeah, substitute one problem for another.

That's about like I'd figure.
