In today’s WCW, Mike the Mook talks about the S&W Model 64. Basically, a stainless steel Model 10, a design with roots at the turn of the 20th century.
The handgun used on screen was an Old West double-action revolver, known as the British Bulldog. These were popular five-shot revolvers.
Straight out of dystopian future of Blade Runner comes… oh, wait–this is now. And it’s called the Chiappa Rhino. Nevermind.

Today we go over a version of one of our favorite Colt revolvers in an incarnation that most so-called gun experts get wrong. Colt’s 1902 Philippines Model
Back in 1927 when Colt made firearms that people wanted and could actually buy, the company rolled out a new revolver based on their popular Police Positive Model. With its slimmer frame and shorter barrel, the new revolver was called “The Detective Special”. But to us, it was just a Dick. Elliott Ness famously carried one, as did Charles Lindbergh. The Dick Special was carried by police detectives, private detectives and anyone who wanted to discreetly carry a small frame .38 revolver. Colt dropped it from their lineup in 1992, just in time for concealed carry reform to start taking hold in America.
Yes, there is a suppressed revolver out there. More than one, actually, but we’re not talking about a Nagant with a can on it. We’re talkign about the OTs-38.
