See attached document. The Defense Supplies Corporation was a public corporation established to manage the distribution of scarce or otherwise war-essential materials and products. After Pearl Harbor they established a “Revolver Program” which handled those orders for authorized non-military recipients.

Ken is referring to the fact that these usually shipped directly to the end user, so in contrast to military-shipped Victorys, you actually find out where they spent the war. They are recognizable by the absence of any stamping on the left side of the topstrap (although there is a small chance that it is a Maritime Commission gun, which would also be unstamped).
