Revolvers were issued to officers during the Civil War. Revolvers helped win the West. Revolvers were the sidearms first issued to police. The Exterminator might be a revolver, but it’s much more than a police issued .38 from years past. A longer barrel for accuracy, bigger bore and more weight make it combat ready worthy. Add to it our tactical rails, and you get a customizable sidearm of sizable proportions.
