Yep... it actually exists. The frogs had a pretty good .357 revolver and still do. more expensive than say a smith? but right about as good. This is the 70's keep in mind. in the 80's guys were using standard revolvers to shoot steel rams and chickens etc at 300 yards.... Revolvers work. Anyhow.. the frogs wanted a compact sniper weapon. one with enough range and punch to take out targets.... enjoy.
