    Help with moon clips!

    For some time now I've been looking for moon clips for my S&W 686 6 shot revolver. I have speed loaders, but would really rather have moon clips.

    I've Googled them, and searched many sites, but can't seem to find them for .38/.357?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    You would have to have the cylinder machined to accept them by a gunsmith. This is not a common request, but it can be done.
    Trust me, moon clips are the right hand of satan.

    ??? According to their "specs", you will need to have your 686 "machined to accept." Plus note disclaimer on ammo.

    "686x6 fits 6-shot, .38 Spl./.357 Mag. cylinders in S&W model 686 that have been converted to accept Full Moonclips. Clips are available in 10-paks only. TK Moonclips are designed for use with specific brands of brass. See SPECS: below before ordering. "

    I have a friend, that did this a few years ago ( he competes in "rev, IDPA) it was expensive, & since, he has sent his 686 back to S&W & had them install a "standard" Cylinder"

    Just my 2 cents

    I wonder if you can have the clips machined down so that they fit flush, I dont know how much room there is there?

    Now that I've found some, I guess now I'll be needing some advice from people who have used them in a 686 6 rounder.
