The Model 33 Revolver is a pistol used as a sidearm and/or backup weapon manufactured for the civilian market. Though it rarely saw combat, it was a proven weapon for home defence, law enforcement and hunting.
The weapon is used by certain police departments, border authorities, by civilian shooters, mercenaries, for home defence and Insurrectionist. It even found some use with Special Forces personnel, who admired its ruggedness and accuracy.
The Model 33 is built like any revolver with the handle and trigger mechanism in the rear, followed by the revolver cylinder, and then the barrel. It comes in a variety orounds, though the most popular is the 12.7x30 mm magnum round, the same ammo as the M6L, but it can only fire six bullets before it must be reloaded. Thanks to it's revolver mechanism, it is somewhat lighter than the M6 series, even more reliable and simpler. It reloads by ejecting the cylinder to the side by pulling the releasing handle in front of it and ejecting and replacing the empty casings. The barrel is aligned with the bottom of the cylinder instead of the top. This lowers the bore sight which directs the recoil in line with the shooter's hand thereby reducing the twisting motion or "muzzle flip" of normal revolvers. The gun's upper assembly are mounted on rails on the lower frame, (barrel, cylinder, trigger, grip) which and recoils around 13mm when firing. The rearward motion of the upper assembly cocks the hammer, and the cylinder is rotated on the forward stroke. It has fully adjustable and removable day/night iron sights. It has a upper and lower rail for fitting sights, torches, LASER designators and scopes.
The gun is much lighter, more reliable and much more accurate than the regular M6L PDWS, allowing for it produce more satisfying combat results, at the cost of magazine size.
The Model 33 Exists in multiple forms of calibre, frame size and barrel length. It has small, medium and large frames, with a variety of barrel lengths and grip decorations, and a choice of 9mm Para, .40 S&W, .45 ACP, .357 Magnum and .500 Magnum.
"It's bulkier than something like the M57, but the knock-down power is phenomenal for a pistol, in fact-round for round I'd say it's slightly more powerful than some ARs."
"The low rate of fire makes it important to make that first shot count, even with the improved double action."
