The sniper revolver is most likely a ruger redhawk family ,ruger built a few super redhawks and redhawks with 22 inch barrels for sale in U K and Canada only. the super redhawk lends itself easily being mofified with a shoulderstock replacing the grips,and super redhawk also accepts scope mounting easily.
A revolver sniper rifle like this appeared in the most recent episode of Psych which is filmed in Vancouver B.C.

Since the 'shootout' scenes of this film were done in British Columbia, I assume that this is another one of those weird hybrid handgun/rifles that I've seen so many Canadian Armorers use. MoviePropMaster2008 03:34, 27 February 2009 (UTC)
I've actually seen carbine configuration revolvers outside of movie props that look very much like this movie weapon, including a Smith & Wesson Model 28 Highway Patrolman. Hexslinger 06:34, 21 September 2009 (UTC)
Actually it is a Ruger Super Redhawk .44 magnum. It has had a carbine conversion performed on it. The French Special forces use a sniper version of this pistol.
I can't quite decide from the caps, but the gun ID'd as a "3904" has a rounded trigger guard doesn't it? The 3904 was only made with the early style horned trigger guard, so if this has the rounded one then it can't be one of these. Also, assuming it is the same gun as the one used in The Sentinel (same armourer?), if the same gun this confirms it has a rounded trigger guard. If it does have the rounded trigger guard, my guess is that it is probably a Smith & Wesson 915. --commando552 (talk) 19:55, 26 August 2014 (EDT)
- I agree, seems more likely to be a 915.
- Also, the SIG-Sauer pistol IDed on this page as a P228 is actually a P226. It has a slide with beveled edges - which means it has to be a SIG 220, 225, or 226 made prior to 1988 (the 228 was introduced after this production technique was abandoned). Since the SIG also has a double-stack frame, it has to be a 226. -MT2008 (talk) 22:18, 26 August 2014 (EDT)
