howdy all,

I've been looking for a Medusa revolver for years but most gun stores look at me like i a m nutz when i ask if they have one. Amazing fire arm but limited info out there on it.

www.cadco.com...

i hear it actually will fire WITHOUT MODIFICATION in the relm of 138 different clibers of ammunition.

Anybody else following this gun? Or better yet see it for less than $860.00 somewhere as that is pretty steep for a revolver.

I've looked about for you and $860.00 is the lowest price I found. I find little information though, or hard facts on it working. Only thing I can find is that it is made by Phillips & Rodgers.

Best of luck finding a cheaper one, average price I found was $1000.

After digging a little, this is not quite correct. The revolver claims to be able to fire a bunch of different types of ammunition - but all are in the caliber.

There are several different ways to measure the size of the bullet - .38, .357 and 9mm bullets are all the same diameter. The only difference between this weapon and a standard .357 revolver are looks, and an extractor that allows it to use "rimless" ammunition.

ok maybe caliber was not quite the correct word- all with basically a 9mm projectile but 138 different cases which is pretty amazing. a 38 special won't fit in a 9mm luger or that in a 9mm long etc for any OTHER gun out there. supposedly you could put all those different bullet TYPES in a box shake it up and feed a random handful into the cylinder of the revolver and have no problems.

i figure in a time of crisis have that many different ammo types available for a single gun would be a huge benefit. Ammo will be a huge issue after it all hits the fan and while this is only a revolver your chances got to be a little better if you have one.

i think i want more than one and i still have not been able to shoot one let alone see one in person!

anyone else out there hear anything more on this gun??

This is not quite true. Most handguns chambered for the .357 magnum can also fire the .38 special (which is a shorter cartdige). The problem lies in using ammunition that doesn't have a rim around the back.

I'm not saying it's insignifigant- but the only "special" item about this is the supposed extractor to handle ammo without a rim. Given the lack of information and/or reviews on the web, I do somewhat wonder whether this weapon actually exists (for sale) and if it works as advertised.

years ago i did see reviews in handgun magazine and it came across as a very reliable performer. i am wondering why it has not caught on more or even more gun dealers being aware of its existance. i did post one link to where one can purchase the gun. Just have not found a place locally to see it in person before special ordering one through a local dealer.

the 357 / 38 special caliber is no big deal - 2 rounds and 2 rounds only. we are talking 138 different rounds and there is a little more to the issue- not only are some of the rounds rimless they are also tapered cases.

i have a 22 that chambers 22mag and 22LR - no big deal again for the two ammo types.
