Knight's Armament Revolver Rifle - .30 Caliber

The Knight's Armament Revolver Rifle is a sound-suppressed carbine that is built around the Ruger Super Redhawk revolver. The weapon was created in 1992 as a close-range accurate survival rifle. Although it was based on a revolver, noise reduction was accomplished through specialized ammunition and design characteristics: Upon firing, a sleeve around each cartridge extended forward to seal the gap between the revolver's cylinder and barrel. Combined with a sound suppressor, the weapon's noise signature was only 119 dB (see here for more on the weapon).

The Knight's Armament Revolver Rifle never entered general production and is extremely rare today. However, it was featured in Soldier of Fortune magazine in 1992, and made its cinema debut in the movie Another Stakeout the following year. The Knight's Revolver Rifle used in this film was actually a mock-up built by Canadian armorers at Felcan Enterprises at the request of the movie's director, who had read about the weapon in Soldier of Fortune. All film and television appearances of the Knight Revolver Rifle listed on IMFDB actually show the same mock-up weapon built for Another Stakeout.
