I'd make fun of a dodobird if it was brought up, too. Just because it existed does not mean it is viable.

See the ACA.

Why isn't it viable? It may not be popular because the gun smithing isn't cheap, but it's viable if you have the moolah.

There was even a GP100 conversion as well. Essentially any wheelguns can be converted to seal up the cylinder gap.

So how's the cylinder going to turn on a non-Nagant style revolver with zero cyinder gap? Answer: it can't.

I usually think of it as the more common and widley understood term for what mall ninjas insist on calling a suppressor, when they are trying to sound like operators.

Correcting people on "silencer" vs. "suppressor" ranks right below correcting people on "magazine" vs. "clip" in the list of annoying habits that identify mall ninjas and gun-geeks down at the gun shop.

It's called proper terminolgy. I prefer correct terminolgy so things are not easily mistaken. "Look out, private there is an M16 here." Private trips over a M16 mine looking for a M16 rifle.

Just be sure to get a revolver that has the thing that goes up.

Lots of fail in this thread, when they use a silencer on a revolver in the movies don't you guys even notice the thumbs forward position that covers the cylinder gap and keeps it quiet?

There are three effective way to suppress (silence) revolvers. As noted above, revolvers that seal the B/C gap can be silenced. The most common is the Nagant but there were others, including the Peiper. #2 is to build a silencer around the whole gun. This has only been done once that I know of, but it has been done. #3 is silence the ammunition. This is done by was is basically a condom loaded into the round. This was, as far as I know, first done by the US Army during the Vietnam war in the .44 QSP (quiet special purpose) revolver used by the tunnel rats. Also in Russian the UDAT revolver, which fires a 32 gauge shotgun cartridge, is available with commercially produced silenced ammunition. Just not available in this country, at least not over the counter.

Tunnel Rats carried Silenced Revolvers in VietNam.

Knights also made a Suppressed Revolver.

Google for pix.

Thanks for the info guys. It's interesting. I looked further with your comments and this was found:
http://world.guns.ru/handguns/double...evolver-e.html


I knew about the Soviet "spy" silenced pistol with the sealed ammo, but not the qspr revolver.

The old Webley revolvers pulled the cylinder rearwards during indexing and then pushed it forward to seal against the forcing cone.

My 686 is pretty quiet with an AAC Evo9 can on. Just as quiet as any semi auto I have.

Neither are Hollywood quiet. My 22 can on an air rifle is hollywood quiet, but thats it.

If calling it a silencer or a suppressor is bad, can I call it a quietner?
