    Moonclips allow the use of rimless cartridges in a revolver cylinder. Some guns can chamber the cartridge on the headspace without a moonclip but it can be difficult to remove the empties because there is no rim for the ejector star to hold on to. They come in full or half moon designs.



    There are a couple of revolvers that do not use them but only the S&W 547, and the Medusa come to mind at the moment.

    Yes, it uses the same ones as the old S&W Model 940. They're still available from S&W for something like $1.38 each on their website and other companies like TK Custom (Welcome to TK Custom.com & Moonclips.com) carry them also.

    Nice snub.

    I have wanted a 9mm snub BUG for a long time now.
    A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.

    Looks like many of us see the sense of a 9mm snub - I've wanted one for a while now too.
    I'm too young to be this old!

    I have been in the same boat. A while back I posted about trying to find a 9mm snub. I have been pretty unsucessful in my search, like you said the only thing I could find was overpriced left over Taurii. I might just have to have my 442 converted.

    Love it. Now you got me thinking...

    That is one nice snubby!

    I agree that the 9 would be a winner in snubby circles...wish S&W saw it that way...

    I have a 940 and also a 642. I've thought about this conversion for a long time. The conversion would made a nice bug gun for my EMP9. The 642 is my favorite because of weight.
