    this is a very unusual firearm...

    If you see this little blaster first time, don’t worry, you don’t have vision issues – it indeed has two barrels. Moreover, it fires two rounds simultaneously upon a trigger pull – a type of firing that is defined as volley fire which is different from the full auto definition. In fact, when Standard Manufacturing first showed this gun (January 2019), it was called S333 Volleyfire. Apparently, they renamed it to S333 Thunderstruck and now you can purchase this pocket artillery piece.

    The S333 Thunderstruck is a double action rimfire revolver chambered in .22 WMR. It has an 8-round cylinder capacity, however, because it fires two round per trigger pull, you have four trigger pulls until the cylinder is empty. The gun has a Glock-style trigger safety and the trigger itself is designed to be pulled with two fingers. The trigger guard is merely a shield in front of the trigger leaving the latter unprotected from the bottom. Probably, the existence of a trigger safety will eliminate the possible dangers associated with the absence of a trigger guard on the bottom portion.

    That’s a gun for the mommy’s babies that don’t have money for a glock. Piece of junk or worst will make someone mad enough to kill you.

    The price will get you two Hi Point nines with bucks left over for extra mags and a box or two of rounds. Bash them all you want, I have and have had various Hi Points and after smoothing and break in they just keep on working.

    Is it S/A only or S/A D/A?

    Only value I can see is as a RARE ODDITY speculation purchase for future sale 50 - 100 years from now. Buy it, prepare it for long term storage, vacuum bag it, box and store it. Save the purchase receipt, original box etc sealed and put aside as well. Put it in Trust for a Grandchild.

    Instead of twice with a small caliber, maybe once with a more powerful cartridge would work better

    Yeah...I also fail to see its value. Maybe if I had the bucks and space to be a grand firearms collector but other than an oddity (as Tac pointed out) I don't see the point of owning such a firearm.

    Do two 22 cal pellets equal a single 44?

    Heck,a .25 would be a better option!

    You guys did notice it's a .22 magnum?

    Yes. Still I cannot see the equivalence to a 44 as ghrit wondered above.

    Over priced novelty gun is what I see :( Plus it is more than a little on the homely side.

    That's why I used to carry a Redhawk as my field gun with a few of these followed by 4 stiff bear loads. I hand loaded mine with 44 mag brass and CCI sells the plastic sabots. IIRC the Speer manual I used had load data for the shot shells.

    Uh, just no.

    An answer to a problem that doesn't exist.

    And it's ugly too.
