Manufactured by D. D. Packenbush, the Double-Action Revolver is a truly unique weapon in the game. Modeled after the classic Colt M1892, it comes gold-plated and adorned with subtle floral engravings. The ivory-like grip adds to its elegance and features the inscriptions "D.D.P" and "Repeating Arms Co.," yet another nod to Red Dead Redemption.

Performance-wise, the revolver stands out with its high damage point per shot - 81, to be precise. This ranks it among the most potent handguns in the game, second only to the Navy Revolver, Heavy Revolver, its Mk II variant, and the Marksman Pistol.

Adding to its unique characteristics is a special animation when the player puts away the Double-Action Revolver on foot - a smooth finger spin and a placement into an imaginary hip holster. It's these little details that make the Double-Action Revolver a true standout in GTA Online.
