Phillips & Rogers doesn't make them anymore... but good call Emclean...


Gary Reeder of Reeders custom guns bought the rights, so to speak, and is making them again, only now they are called "The Scorpion"...


They use a special extractor system that allowed them to shoot many many cartridges in the .355 -.356 range... from 9mm, .357, .38 special, .38 colt, long colt, .380, .38 super, 9x21, ect... ect... ad nauseum. they are supposedly very accurate guns.. wiht the frame based on the Korth design.


Several were made for Colt.. as they were going to offer them... but it fell thru before they went into production.


If you hunt around, you can still find them.. especially at gun shows. prices tend to be slightly high on them, as they are considered "rare". Last time I saw them, "Midwest ordnance" had a few at their gun show table in the $550 range... NIB box, P&R made.

The $550 was for the older Phillips & Rodgers "Medusa" revolvers they had... the new Skorpion revolver is more than double that.

Check this out...

The original did not allow for +p either...


the extractors ride in tracks down into each chamber... +p ammo would force the brass case to deform into this channel, thus jamming the gun.

As for the "mainly will shoot".. thats jsut the manufacturers recommendation... if you read it, it says it will still chamber & fire all those rounds. Some of the more obscure rounds dont have reliable ignition due to primer depth... even P&R suggested against using some calibers in emergency situations for that very reason.

It will handle .357... 9mm... .38 super... ect... so the non +p rule is not about quality, or weakness of the gun, but about not forcing brass case into the extractor slots.
