Looking at a S&W 22-4 revolver in 45ACP...

I love my M22 but shoot mainly 45 Auto Rim in it. While I see some Smith prices are coming down, I would expect the one you describe to be in the $750 range. Anything less might be a steal.

Remember there is the California premium.

I think you will like it. I have one of the Thunder Ranch versions with a 4" barrel and it is pretty slick. It has some issues which are being rectified at the gunsmith right now, but it is pretty nice.

Should be the same clips that fit all S&W .45 ACP revolvers since the first Model 1917.

Yep. 22, 25, 625 & M1917 (S&W or Colt) all use the same clips.

I order mine from Ranch Products, in Malinta Ohio.

http://www.ranchproducts.com/aboutus.html

Most of what is available is their product marketed by others. For the polymer version, try

http://www.ezmoonclip.com/page_4.htm

For the polymer, one size does not fit all 45 ACP revolvers. The chart will get you where you want to be. Or call them.

I use the Ranch Products and loading is not bad. To unclip, I used a piece of tubing with a shelf ground in the end.

My steel clips have been in use since the 70s. So far, I have not lost one to bending. I have worn a couple out but that was my fault, I was not rotating them.

Buy the Ranch Products clips. They will stand up to many more years of use.

lezmark,

I have the same revolver with a 4" barrel. It is rapidly becoming my favorite revolver. That is saying a lot as I built a 45 ACP from a M28-2 in the 70s and have carried it daily since that time.
