Okay. It’s TV. I’ve been watching old reruns of the Untouchables. Without fail at some point a bad guy will pull out a revolver that has a long suppressor attached. I’ve always been told that was a waste of time on a wheel because of gas escaping between the cylinder and forcing cone. Cane anyone refer me to any authoritative information on the topic.
thanks.

I met a fellow police instructor at a class and he was from a former Iron Curtain nation and told me that his favorite revolver was a Russian 7.62 Nagant gas check that he had a special Suppressor and he told me that it did work. I did not see it as were both in a training session but I do believe that it would to some point. but I know that suppressors are not like you see in the movies. SILENT? No Way!

The cylinder gap will allow noise to escape But a can on the end of the revolver will dampen some of the sound. but no all. certainly wont work as good as an auto pistol with sub sonic rounds ,,

Yes series guy, the Nagant cylinder gap is blocked when the revolver is fired. Thus making it possible to have a suppressor to work better.
