Old TV show... anyone remember ???

There used to be an old TV show about a secret agent who had a gun [ a revolver I believe ] that would fire backwards if you didn't hit a certain switch thing. I think the guy was blonde. Anyone remember the shows name ???

AgentX-127 Woo who?
How old was this show?

The Russian agent, Illya Kuryakin, in "The Man from U.N.C.L.E." was blond.
The U.N.C.L.E. gun was a very versatile weapon that might have had that feature.

It was I believe 70's or early 80's. Wasn't the UNCLE guy. Think he was ainly on his own. I think the gun was stainless. I remember some gunsmith built a real world version of it to see if it would work.

I believe you are referring to Matt Helm. I think he was blonde on TV, but had dark hair in the movies. Check out this link:

I'm pretty sure it was on tv as I remember saying to myself I like the show but how many different ways can you get a bad guy to shoot you with your own gun.

There were movies and then there was a short-lived TV series. That is probably what you are remembering. In any event, you're going to have a hard time finding the TV series since most fans hate the movie and TV adaptations. Apparently this was a book that the studios took great liberties with and alienated the books' fan base.
