    Thanks for clearing this up.

    A curse on the jackass at S&W who mis-marked the box!


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    ludlow - CT grips - love 'em! In strong sun or just bright light of course - unlikely to see the dot other than real close up. However - once light level drops to like a cloudy day then it becomes useful - from that stage thru to dark I consider them invaluable. I have those on SP-101, M629 and, a M28-2 - plus on my carry SIG.

    Apart from the assistance to me with tired old eyes and struggles with iron sights - the best thing for me is RAPID target aquisition and I mean ... rapid! There is no need for gun presentation to be high and aligned at all - from a fast draw and approximated ''point'' the dot is rapidly seen and so gives a much better chance (IMO) of a highly effective first shot.

    Expensive additions but for me - potential life saving ones.

    shot some factory made 45 auto rim today, no moon clip of course, the they fell out after shooting just like they were supposed to.

    shot about 36 rounds, put in a clip with 45 acp,bang bang, and locked up tighter than a... well you get the point.

    so tomorrow i'll ship back and play with a different gun.

    oh well what problem

    thanx

    Hmmm ..... so, is it that cases will not extract at all, without a struggle?. Does cylinder open freely? What would happen if you used a piece of dowel to free each case a bit to ''start them off'' extracting? I am still intrigued with this one.

    i made sure that the moon clip is brand new, the rounds were put into the clip with a remooner. a mixture of ammo (not in each clip) wolf, winch, pro load,(my favorite factory load).

    the cylinder opens and closes freely with or with out ammo, the extractor come out ok when cylinder is empy, and come out (pushes out) when the ammo is unfired.

    after firing, the cylinder opens as well as always. i literally have a hole in my hand from the first time, as the extractor didn't move at all.

    i had to pull out my tacticle knife to push on the extractor to eject.

    i havent tried the dowel thing though.

    big temptation to get my dremel and start on it, that's why i'll send it back b4 then as

    i'm extremely dangerous with any kind of power tool.

    haha - yeah, avoid ''dremelitis'' - it can be costly!!

    OK so - ejection hassles - and that is wierd, as I know my empty case set in moonclip just rockets out when I whack the ejector.

    Hmmm - so - still enigmatic tho I feel I must have overlooked - something.

    If any more info, or results from Smith - do post same.
