Description: SCP-736 is a revolver believed to be manufactured to the early 1950’s with a nickel finish and a mother-of-pearl grip. This grip can be removed to reveal a compartment 2cm x 3.5 cm in size that is intended to hold a photograph. When a photograph of an individual is placed inside and the grip is replaced, the gun may be used to play the game “Russian Roulette” where by placing the gun to the head of the user and pulling the trigger will kill either the wielder or the individual photographed. If no photograph is present, the gun will not fire. The gun requires no ammunition and any placed within will still be present after the firing of the pistol. Examination of the deceased reveal no bullet, though state of wound matches those made by .38 Special hollow-point bullets. To date (██/██/████), there have been no cases of subjects surviving being shot by the gun.
