2014 is turning out to be a year for unusual handguns. So far we’ve seen a trimmed-down .38 Special with a see-through side plate called The View from Taurus, a .223 single shot pocket pistol from Heizer Defense, and a snub-nosed .460 revolver from Smith & Wesson. So why not throw in a 3-shot .38-Special revolver with an integral laser sight into the mix, just to keep things interesting. That’s exactly what Century International Arms has done with the release of the new MDL 38-3 revolver.

With a frame constructed of 7075-T651, the concealed hammer double-action only MDL is just under 1-inch thick with an unloaded weight of 14.5-ounces. The barrel is mounted below the ejector rod, like a Rhino revolver, with the 3-chamber cylinder flattened on the left side and a single cylinder flute on the right. No matter how you slice it, this new revolver is certainly unlike anything else on the market.
