Our Assessment: From Wikipedia: “COP stood for Compact Off-Duty Police. The double action weapon is about twice as wide, and substantially heavier than the typical .25 automatic pistol, though its relatively compact size and powerful cartridge made it a good choice for a defensive weapon or a police backup gun.“ This COP has been pampered. There are minimal handling marks. It has been fired, but it is obvious great care was taken when using and handling this pistol. Designed by Robert Hillberg and made in California for a short period of time around 30 years ago, this solid compact pistol is easy to conceal and will pack a punch with its .357 magnum rounds. As you lock down the four shot barrel and grip this sturdy pistol in your hand, you will immediately know the COP is a serious, quality personal defense choice that is easily concealable.
