I only have a .44 special but it's a fair enough weapon. I'm betting you'll enjoy it.

I was looking at one of these in 45acp at my LGS. There is one quirk to these being they don't use moon clips and use semi auto rounds. Rounds don't just drop in the cylinder like normal revolver ammo, there is a spring loaded catch on the star ejector in each chamber so you have to push the round past and they sort of snap into place. I was playing with it a bit and noticed if you raised the ejector rod part way they would drop right in and then you can lower the rod. Not sure which way was quicker or easier but neither is as fast as loading a regular DA revolver. I'm still thinking about picking it up but i want to look at it again.

That 4" 9mm would be appealing to me. I absolutely love the "no moon clips" design.

I've had, and still have one, a couple of guns that required moon clips. Talk about quirky... Took a special tool to get the rounds inserted and removed from the .45acp moon clip for the S&W Governor.

The .380 revolver (Taurus UL .380) I kept has moon clips I can load and unload by hand... Has a better designed clip than the S&W.

I'll grab it tomorrow. He's closed today. I dickered around about a SW31-1 with myself. It was gone then. Don't want to miss out on the charter. I like my Ruger blackhawk in 10mm/40sw. No moon clips needed for it too. It's nice not having to chase brass. Especially the 10mm. We all know how far they fly out of a semi-auto.

Fast forward to 4 mins. He pushes them in though. My owners manual said to give them a slight twist. My rear sights are black and are adjustable.
