Tanaka S&W M1917 4inch Hand Ejector Steel Finish Revolver - PRE-ORDER
  • Pre-Order: Due in store Early December 2018
  • The real Smith & Wesson Model 1917 was essentially an adaptation of that company's Second Model .44 Hand Ejector, chambered instead for .45 ACP, employing a shortened cylinder allowing for use of half-moon clips, and a lanyard ring on the butt of the frame. Smith & Wesson had recently (c. 1915–16) produced the Hand Ejector, which uses their heavy .44 caliber frame, for the British Army in .455 Webley caliber due to shortages in British production facilities of standard-issue Webley Mk VI top-break revolvers.


  • The S&W M1917 is distinguishable from the Colt M1917 in that the S&W cylinder had a shoulder machined into it to permit rimless .45 ACP cartridges to headspace on the case mouth (as with automatic pistols). The S&W M1917 could thus be used without the half-moon clips, though the empty cases would have to be poked-out manually through the cylinder face, since the extractor star cannot engage the rimless cases.


  • Tanaka Smith & Wesson M1917 4" revolver. As with all Tanaka revolvers both the Gas & BBs are stored in the cylinder.
  • All Steel Jupiter Finish models by Tanaka are ABS with Metal parts but the finish is as close to real steel as possible.
