We’ve all seen the folding Glocks, but a folding revolver? Well, it’s available from Standard Manufacturing. With a barrel length of .88″ and a capacity of five rounds of .22 Magnum, I think the design is extraordinary and makes much more sense than a collapsible piece of polymer. The Standard Manufacturing Switch Gun is machined from stainless steel and there is also a blued version. It comes with a polymer grip and the trigger is single action.
Below you can see it unswitched.
Here’s how the manufacturer describes the revolver.
The revolutionary new SWITCH GUN is the latest advancement in personal protection from Standard Manufacturing. The SWITCH GUN fits into your pocket and occupies about the same amount of space as your cell phone. When in the folded position, the grip of the SWITCHGUN completely encapsulates the trigger to prevent any type of accidental discharge. Upon depressing a button the SWITCHGUN immediately springs open as is ready for the immediate and reliable discharge of five .22 Magnum cartridges. When not in use, the SWITCHGUN can be folded into a very small form factor and stored in your pocket to conceal. Unlike any of it’s competitors, the SWITCHGUN features a large handle to provide a tremendous amount of grip similar to a full-sized revolver which provides the highest degree of control and accuracy.

Unsurprisingly, it’s not legal in all States (or countries), but where allowed, it’s yours for $449.
