Default Tactical revolver

What is the best tactical revolver choice, if a revolver can be said to be tactical?

SFOD-D used suppressed Dan Wesson .357 mags back in the day.

Default Supressed Dan Wesson 357 Mags ? HA HA HA

NO WAY......We had Dan Wessons delivered low bid to the State Police....we sent them ALL back. Absolute garbage --circa 1974

NObody ever used supressed revolvers for anything. Problem being gas from front of cylinder/forcing cone. You have to enclose too much of a revolver to supress it......except on TV

1911's and ruger/colt 22's yes...all the way back to OSS days.

Somebody lied to you !

Tactical revolvers.....in days passed...silky smooth tuned trigger pull and a fist full of speed loaders..Wheel guns are very reliable but ammo limited.
Make great hide out or back-up pistols.

JMHO

You might want to do a little more research on that one.

Default More Research:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Revolver#Use_with_suppressors

I have been in the LE/Spec Ops community for 40+ years and licensed to manufacture supressors...I have built and tested many designs. I know of what I speak.

Default More Data:

Some experimental Dan Wesson Suppressors were in fact made in an attempt to see IF by reducing cylinder-forcing cone gap, the noise signature could be reduced. It didn't work out. They were never a team issue item.

Main problem was 357 Mag is supersonic....reducing velocity to sub sonic means 38 Special.

Many prototypes are made for LE and Spec ops...you may have fired one.

They were never purchased or assigned a national stock number (NSN) as they were just another technology experiment that verified why revolvers are not supressed.

The original question was regarding silencers for revolvers.
In practical terms, it doesnt work. If legal in your state, buy one in .22lr and you will have more fun than you can imagine !

Default Tactical revolver

I guess if I had to pick somthing out of my arsenal and use it in a tactical application it would be my Smith & Wesson 610 in 10 mm, yep that would get the job done!!!

They are by no means the most effective suppressor setup, but they do reduce the signature just enough to make the signature harder to pinpoint. I think the idea was to run a .38 subsonic of some sort as the ammo, which would have cut the signature down a little more.
