Silencers on revolvers don't work, as they have a gap between cylinder and barrel from which sound and gases escape, thus silencing the muzzle would not have much effect. The only major exception to this is the pre-WWII Soviet Nagant M1895 revolver (not used here), where the cylinder moves forward before firing, effectively sealing the gap. The silencer for this revolver was quite effective but also conspicuously large. See more
