What’s more scary?

A smiling redhead?

Or the clip-fed 9mm revolver, the favorite fodder of pulp novel writers of the 1970s, in her hand?

    PLEASE – if you’re smart enough to correctly identify the model as a redhead, you should at least be smart enough to know that revolvers aren’t clip-fed.

    The stereotpyical 9mm is neither a revolver,it’s semiautomatic, and it isn’t clip fed, it’s magazine fed.

    Oleg, I know you know this but who ever is writing copy for you obviously doesn’t :/

    oh, look who knows so much about revolvers! I guess my S&W 625 holds the rimless cartridges together with fairy dust and audacity.

    Ha, poor Rob. Took that one hook, line, and sinker.

    It probably is clip fed, but the factory description doesn’t say one way or the other, and the only “specifications” listed are the key lock and transfer bar.

    I guess because it eats rimless, and it’s a double action, we can assume it’s clip loaded, but they don’t seem to say what kind of clips it comes with, or how many.

    A single action using a loading gate could be chambered for rimless, and there’d be no use for a clip. It’d run just like the same revolver built for rimmed.

    I suppose there are probably some gun shop sales people who’d think you were stupid if you went in and asked for revolver clips, or moon clips, or half-moon clips.

    I had an 1860s revolver laser scanned a while back, and not knowing what to call the cylinder they listed it as the clip. If you get your information from watching television you’d think anything that held “bullets” is called a “clip”. Everything but an actual clip– They wouldn’t know what to do with that.

    • Why would a single action cylinder be any different from a double action cylinder? Either it headspaces on the rim, on the mouth, or is held by a clip. Am I missing something?

      • Paul Koning says:

        Aren’t SA revolvers normally loaded one round at a time, through a loading gate? That would seem to rule out moon clips. Are there other kinds of clips? I can imagine a C-clip that effectively adds a rim to a rimless cartridge, and such a thing could load through a loading gate, but has anyone done such a thing?

      • Joat says:

        You could have a cylinder machined that head spaces off the front of the cartridge, but the extractor pushes on the rim, how would you get them out. The desigh of the gate load SA extractors would be easier to make work.

    Who cares, I just want to meet the model.

  6. Ray says:

    The FBI had S&W make a 9MM revolver back about 35-40 years ago. DA .45 ACP revolvers were common at one time. It would be nice to see the revolver make a comeback from the SA fad.

    • Will says:

      Ruger did that for the French. I think for one of their police type depts. And then they backed out of it. They ended up being sold here.

    Sarcasm, do you see it?

  8. Richard Douglas says:

    Smiling redheads are always dangerous. It doesn’t make them any less interesting though…

  9. Matt says:

    What revolver?

  10. JSmath says:

    The choice is pretty obvious.

    A revolver will kill me.

    A redhead will kill me then consume my soul for sustenance.

    The smiling redhead. I’m married to one.

    And yeah, she carries. Normally, a Colt Pocket Positive I reworked for her, but she’s getting a fast draw rig for Valentine’s Day, and her own Vaquero for her birthday in March. Be very afraid of redheads.
