thanks JW!

i was pretty sure it did.

i think a revolver in 45 acp would be pretty cool to have, especially if a person did own a couple of 1911's in 45.

The S&W 22-4 was a limited edition of the new Classic Line. It has a Turnbull finish and a 4" barrel. This Thunder Ranch S&W fires the .45 ACP, .45 Gap and .45 AR. It was only sold thru special selected S&W dealers. The orginal Mdl. 22 was an up grade of the S&W 1917 WWI revolver. They all use the moon clips. In modern guns the Full Moon clip is used.

I'm sure you're right about some not using moon clips, but I've never heard of it. I was under the impression it couldn't be done with straight necked cases because there is nothing to catch the extractor on.

Maybe the Medusa is an exception.

S&W did produce a 9MM revolver at one time. The small "J" frame had a unique extractor which did not need moon clips.

Yup! The S&W 547 is the more modern version of this gun. I also see Charter has the New Pitbull in 9 & 40

My understanding is that is also files the .45 auto rim, which does not require moon clips. The .45 acp round does.

You guys are killing me. This one is nickel plated with a 5.5" barrel. Seems like it would be a pretty accurate gun that would be a lot of fin at the range. Or hell, even as a home defense tool. I think I'll roll the dice and hope it is still around in another 6 to 8 weeks when I am back in town. If anyone else really wants it let me know, and I'll give you the info on where to find it.

I had a M-1955 which was a target version of the same thing. 5" barrel if I remember correctly. The later "lock" versions are less desirable, but still very functional.

And yes, it will also fire .45 Auto Rim, but that stuff is nearly impossible to find now a days
