During the recent SHOT Show in Las Vegas, we caught up with the folks at Standard Manufacturing. There we saw the revolver we’ve been wanting to get a closer look at for some time, the S333 Thunderstruck. Of course the S333 Thunderstruck made waves last year upon first introduction, launching two rounds with every pull of the trigger.

Standard Manufacturing S333 Thunderstruck

Designed for self-defense, the S333 Thunderstruck revolver holds eight rounds of .22 WMR in the cylinder. With each pull of the trigger, two rounds fire downrange. So in theory, four pulls of the trigger sends eight rounds of .22 WMR downrange in a hurry. The unique pistol feeds its two, dual barrels. Those barrels fire simultaneously with a pull from the pistol’s equally unique trigger system.

At the heart of the revolver is its double cantilever trigger. It features an integral blade safety design, providing concise, deliberate pulls. The double-action revolver only fires when the blade safety depresses and the double cantilever trigger is pulled completely. This prevents accidental discharge, according to Standard Manufacturing.
