    It's an old Smith & Wesson revolver of some small caliber. I can't remember exactly, but it dates back to before 1900.

    Try Google bro...

    The term refers to a safety on the backstrap that requires the shooter to hold (squeeze) the grip before it can fire. It was first used on some old S&W revolvers, but the safety is now commonly found on 1911s and Springfield XDs.

    Long ago, in a galaxy far, far away, people drank a beverage called lemonade. There was a kitchen tool that squeezed the juice from them. When they made a revolver with a backstrap safety, someone noted the resemblance to the kitchen tool- hence the name. Have seen these made up thru .38 Special caliber. Here is a pic of a Lemon Squeezer-

    S&W "Safety Hammerless" was the model in question.

    Does anyone know what a lemon squeeze pistol is? Would you be able to show me a picture of one or point me to a picture? Also did they come in 45 caliber?

    Not sure where you learned to spell but you need to read a dictionary. I suck at this stuff and your comment gave me a headache because it was written so badly. We encourage members here to use proper spelling and grammar. I can muddle through but many will not even give you the time of day when you are typing like what you did.

    PS, Welcome to the board.

    Are you perhaps referring to the H&K P7? (Chris's Unofficial H&K P7 Website). Sometimes also called the lemon squeezer. It was only available in 9mm and .40S&W.

    S&W Models 40 & 42. Gun World Magazine, Aug 2010, states that S&W has reintroduced them lately.
