The Model 1917 revolvers were large-frame revolvers adopted by the United States Military in 1917 during the Great War. These revolvers as they are chambered in either .45 ACP or .45 Auto Rim were used to supplement the standard issue M1911 pistols. The M1917 continues to see action in World War II, the Korean War with support troops, and the Vietnam War with the Tunnel Rats and MACV-SOG units. The M1917 is also one of the pistols seen used by actor Harrison Ford in the "Indiana Jones" franchise.

The Tanaka Revolver M1917 Heavy Weight Gas Revolver is a faithful replica of the large framed military revolver. Although the gun is made of plastic, this is a Heavy Weight Model and was designed to have a realistic weight to it. Tanaka has truly crafted a gem that, at first glance, looks as if it is a metal gun. However, this detailed finish can easily deceive even the keen-eyed among us, as the revolver is made of high-quality heavyweight plastic. Do not be fooled, though plastic, nothing about this gas revolver can be considered "cheap" as it carries a fair amount of weight and when paired with an assortment of metal parts, it certainly feels as if it's a metal gun. Metal parts such as the hammer, trigger, and cylinder give the pistol a real-life-like aesthetic making it not only a great choice for collectors but can even be used in film or cosplay as a prop!

The trigger on this gun is a joy as the double action is smooth and direct, pulling the trigger slowly feels buttery with no "grit" feeling at all. When the hammer is pulled back, the trigger breaks soft and the sound of the cylinder rotating exemplifies the effort Tanaka put in to make this revolver a standout.
