A snub-nosed revolver is any small, medium, or large frame revolver with a short barrel, which is generally 3 inches or less in length. They are primarily designed for maneuverability and concealment. These revolvers were extremely popular in the U.S. until the 1950s and 1960s, when most states passed laws limiting or prohibiting the carry of concealed weapons. They are manufactured in a wide variety of calibers.
