This photo of a chap in the uniform of Brazil’s PolÃcia Militar do Distrito Federal (PMDF) holding a strange super long revolver has been appearing recently on social media. On the wall behind him is what looks like the coat of arms of a municipality, but I have not been able to identify it. The photograph seems to have originated from one of those Russian-language “cool photo” sites that publishes images entirely without captions or explanations.

That photo looks to be manipulated.
The guy on the picture may be an authentic police officer, I couldnâ€™t question it. But the gun he is holding seems to be a fancy metal model of a sort that can hardly shoot any bullet. No more than a big toy probably, made for the purpose of display in a living room (such a childish bad taste!).
For if you look attentively to it, first youâ€™ll notice that the axis of the cylinder is absurdly very close to the axis of the barrel. Much too close to allow for firing more than a tiny cartridge whose caliber must be inferior to 22 LR (which one then, if not an extremely rare German 4.25 Liliput?). Then youâ€™ll see that the cylinder must be a part of an electrical engine or something similar found in a junkyard (like all other parts of this gun, clearly).
Last but not the least of many other unlikely characteristics I spot on this thing, given where the hammer is on the frame, then its firing pin could hardly hit the primer of a cartridge loaded so low (in the axis of its barrel since that’s where any bullet is supposed to go through)!
Well, itâ€™s a fake gun.
