    that is, a new Chinese 9mm police revolver
    what is most amusing that they also make a shameless copy of Smith & Wesson M10, but it seems that "western" designs only good for westerners, at least in Chinese point of view.

    Wow, a double action only AND a manual safety? That's a little excessive if you ask me... even if it is designed for poorly trained individuals.

    Interesting. At least they are not planning on arming their traffic police like assault troops. A few years ago, after the gun ban in Australia, I remember reading a news article in the paper that the police in the state of Tasmania turned in their Model 10s and were issued Glock 19s. Apparently, once the citizenry was disarmed, the police felt the need for greater firepower. Bureaucrats!! - :barf: (and I are one - :uhoh: :eek:)

    That is the funniest thing I've read all week! While the meek may inherit the earth, the inept are in charge until then!

    Interesting that they went for a proprietary cartridge other than something standard and pre-existing. And why base it on the old 38 S&W round?

    Weird.

    That's terrible!

    Almost achingly ugly.

    Clearly, the designer(s?) cared nothing about rapid reload capability. Even with a plenty-long-enough barrel, the ejector rod appears to have about the same stroke as a J-frame two-inch revolver.

    "In the country of the blind, the one-eyed man is king." I guess if the masses are totally without firearms, such a revolver would command a certain amount of respect [make that FEAR.]

    It looks like they ripped off Dan wesson - barrel; Colt-frame; Harrington and Richardson-rear sight; and smith and wesson- cylinder latch. Just like when they were pirating CDs a couple of years back.

    If ugly had a name

    I wonder about things like cylinder gap, trigger pull, and how easy it would be to take apart and apply a stone to whatever burrs are in the action.

    Almost every weapon that they 'develop' is a copy of something else.

    The proprietary round is so that the families of those executed with it won't be able to go on the 'net and find out if they are being overcharged for the bullet used in the execution.

    For a place that invented the very gun powder that makes all this possible, that is a shame.

    But at least we have nothing to worry about interms of an invasion lol. It would just be a billion black ants instead of fire ants.

    Still, a billion black ants would be annoying, at least for anyone close enough to them. I mean, just a swarm of ants....1,000,000,000 ants......

    I wonder how much "less lethal" is the black bullet vs. the real one, based on a cartridge like that :p ?

    160 ft-lbs and 720 fps puts the bullet weight at about 140 grains.

    I guess it's not that bad, though. Remember, The "PP" in Walther PPK stands for Polizei Pistole. Way back in those days in Europe, it was quite common for police to be armed with various flavors of .22, .25, and .32. About the most powerful cartridge in common use was the .380.
