Snub Training – Fitz Special

Named for Colt shooter and employee J. H. FitzGerald who took various Colt .38- and .45-caliber revolvers, cut the barrels down to two-inches, “bobbed” the hammer spurs, cut away the front of the trigger guards and removed the “button” at the tip of the ejector rods. This work was done in an attempt to make a practical self-defense belly gun. Snub revolvers featuring some, most or all of these features are referred to as FitzGerald Specials or Fitz Specials.
