Here's your chance to own a rare bird. This is a Phillips & Rodgers Medusa Model 47 double-action revolver. This Medusa is designed to take 25 different cartridges in the .38/9mm/.357 ammunition range (this does not include the .357 sig because the round is a .40 caliber cartridge that necks down to .357). Patterned after the Smith & Wesson K-Frame pistols, the Medusa's frame is made of 8620 steel hardened to 28 Rockwell. To withstand the varying pressures involved in the various rounds, the revolvers cylinder is made with mil spec 4330 modified vanadium steel (the same alloy used in the Gatling gun barrels of F-16 Falcon fighters) hardened to 36 Rockwell. When you insert a rimmed (revolver) cartridge, the finger is pushed toward the center of the cylinder and is not functional. The rim helps to position the cartridge. But when you insert a rimless (semiautomatic pistol) cartridge, the finger is again pushed inward until it springs back out into the extraction groove to hold the cartridge firmly in place against the oustide wall of the chamber. After you fire and open the cylinder, pressing the ejector rod forces the entire assembly backward. The fingers extract the cartridge case, either by gripping the extractor groove of a rimless cartridge or by pushing against the rim of a revolver cartridge. This gun is new in hard case and comes with all paperwork. Copy of FFL required before gun shipped. Payments accepted via money order, cashiers check, Mastercard & Visa.
