RHKP Smith and Wesson revolver

This is just another interesting piece from the Gun Lab reference collection. This is just one of the weapons used by the Royal Hong Kong Police prior to being disbanded in 1997 when the British turn over Hong Kong to the Chinese. The pistol I am talking about is a Smith and Wesson model 10-7 revolver.

The pistol is a standard Smith and Wesson model 10-7 in 38 special.
