Golden State Arms was one of the companies cutting back the barrels of No.2 revolvers for the US market. Ads for the 2inch were in many magazines during the late 50's and early 60"s. The wood grips are original but heavily sanded to remove normal grooves in the wood. It may have some collector interest like the sporterized .303 rifles done by Golden State but they are not legitimate issued items.

Bill Rogers at Springfield Sporters made a wise comment one time. He said if you import 1000 guns, that is only 20 per state on average.

The "Tankers" were cheap and concealable. Some would have gravitated towards the criminal element where the police would eventually find and destroy them. A few would be lost, improved and modified to the point of having no collector value and some are buried in collects to surface on the passing of the current custodian.
