The SNS pistol is a weapon in the mod.
The phrase Saturday night special is pejorative slang used in the United States and Canada for any inexpensive handgun. Saturday night specials have been defined as compact, inexpensive, small-caliber handguns with perceived low quality; however, there is no official definition of "Saturday night special" under federal law, though some states define "Saturday night specials" or "junk guns" by means of composition or materials strength. Low cost and high availability make these weapons attractive to many buyers despite their shortcomings.
The Gun Control Act of 1968 banned the importation and manufacture of many Saturday-night specials made and sold in prior years, most notable a large number of revolvers made by Röhm (RG).
