This Gun May Take This Year’s Award For Weirdest Pistol

Weapons have an interesting way of taking on a mystique in culture. For some, guns are romanticized as toys to be played with as if they pose no danger to the person using it. For others, guns are vilified as something to be feared no matter who is wielding the weapon. And, then, some decide to make a form of art when they create a new firearm.

We aren’t going to say that the Standard Manufacturing S333 Volleyfire pistol is art, but it is certainly something out of the ordingary. A writer going by the name of Hrachya H describes this pistol this way:

Standard Manufacturing has released a rather weird revolver called S333 Volleyfire. This gun has two barrels with side by side orientation and can simultaneously fire two .22 WMR cartridges with each trigger pull which means it can empty its eight-round cylinder in a matter of four trigger pulls. This revolver is most likely the evolution of the Volleyfire pepperbox that was introduced during the SHOT Show 2017.

Another unusual feature of this revolver is the absence of a full trigger guard. As you can see, it has sort of a front trigger shield but there is nothing on the bottom portion. The double action only trigger is apparently designed to be pulled with two fingers. The gun has no manual safeties but there is a Glock-style trigger safety. The company describes the S333 Volleyfire as an extremely safe firearm. Here is how they explain it:

The S333 also features an articulated safety integral into the trigger and requires a deliberate and full pull of the trigger before the transfer bar will clear from the firing pins and hammers. The resulting S333 is the safest personal protection firearm available.

As you can see from the picture above, this pistol is not your normal every day firearm. But, if you’re looking for something a little different, something that maybe has a bit of mystique, then this may be your firearm of choice.
