Tanaka Colt Detective Special 2" Heavy Weight Airsoft Revolver
Tanaka Colt Detective Special 2" revolver. The classic 38cal snubnose star of film and TV detectives from the 1930s right up to modern times. This model is based on the round grip Detective Specials. As with all Tanaka revolvers both the Gas & BBs are stored in the cylinder.
The real steel Colt Detective Special is a carbon steel framed double-action short-barrelled revolver, and is an example of a class of firearms known to gun enthusiasts as "snubnosed", "snubbies", or "belly guns". As the name "Detective Special" suggests, this model revolver was used as a concealed weapon by plainclothes police detectives.
Introduced in 1927, the Detective Special was one of the first short-barrelled revolvers produced with a modern swing-out frame. It was designed from the outset to be chambered for higher-powered cartridges such as the .38 Special, considered to be a powerful calibre for a concealable pocket revolver of the day. The Detective Special was still in the Colt product line up until 1995.
