Tactical Revolver in Germany

    This photo was taken yesterday in Hamburg, Germany when the MEK (Mobiles Einsatzkommando / Mobile Tactical Squad) raided a bar after one patron killed another. What I find is interesting is a revolver being used by one of the leading officers. It is not often you see police using revolvers when MP5s and high-capacity semi-auto pistols are on hand.

    The revolver could be the Smith & Wesson Model 625, which some German SEK police squads have in service.

    UPDATE: Michael Zeleny suggests it is a Korth revolver. Ducky points out that the MEK mainly use the S&W 13/65.
