If I recall correctly, moon clips were not required with the Ruger 9mm revolvers. The 9mm cartridges' extractor groove engaged a spring extractor attached to the ejector star. A pretty neat setup.Speed-Six in 9mm...gettin' into the rare side of things there! Pretty cool actually! Those were made when 9mm was just getting big in the US (late '70's and early '80's) and several manufacturer's were making 9mm revolvers to woe buyer's!
If you wanted to carry that revolver, I would recommend an XS Sights Big Dot Tritium front sight and (if needed) a set of Hogue grips! Just grab moon clips whenever you see them and enjoy! I doubt there's a 9mm round that it can't handle! I know a few guys who buy only the Winchester Ranger +P+ 9mm round for their Ruger 9mm Revolvers (they have SP101's) and they love them!
Thanks to Waveform for the patent drawings. I do not have a picture of a 9mm revolver and in truth have never seen one, but have read descriptions in reviews of the Ruger 9mm Six revolvers when they were first produced.I'de love to see a pic of THAT
If I don't misunderstand the omission, that would be a shame. This gun deserves (and your marksmanship practice, too) to be taken to the range and exercised.i wont be putting lipstick on this gun. i'll just use it the way it is....
