    I have a BMT mooner but for my 627 using rimmed cartridges. There is nothing to come unscrewed on their rimmed version. For all my revolver I use a golf club handled for most of my demooning as it lets me quickly and easily separate spent cases from live rounds on partially used moonclips. For mooning rimless cartridges I use a moonclip tool very similar to the TK Custom version from Mooncliptool.com, that appears to be out of business now. When I first started shooting USPSA Revolver division I use an old pair of channel lock pliers to moon and a modified 7/16" nut driver to demoon all my moonclips.

    When I went to the Revolver Nationals (2014) I had enough ammo on moonclips to shoot the match three times. I did not touch a moonclip tool that entire weekend.

    Manurhin makes a .357 revolver with a 9mm cylinder.

    Don't know if its any better, but another, pricey, option.

    Same for Korth.

    Agreed.
    I see no advantage of a revolver in 9mm when .38 Spl+P is just as effective, .357 is a definite step up, and the gun is no bigger than one in 9mm. I'd only go with 9mm if gun size (concealability) is an issue, and even then, a .357 snub nose is really no larger than a compact 9mm semiauto.

    I like 9mm firearms in general, but can't claim to know what the current "best" 9mm revolver is. Perhaps the Korth 357/9mm? I've owned several Ruger and S&W 9mm or .357/9mm revolvers over the last many years. Perhaps not Korth quality, but all certainly good quality guns.

    I currently have a S&W 686 .357/9mm conversion, a 940 and SP101 9mm. I realize that I'm in the minority in liking 9mm revolvers, and most shooters are happier with similar revolvers chambered in traditional rimmed .38 Spcl. and .357 cartridges. To each his own...

    FWIW, the reviews I read were positive so it is possible I just got a bad one. There are still a large number of bullet/powder combinations I haven't tried so I will continue tinkering with loads and see if there is something it doesn't hate. If nothing else, it keeps me off the streets at night.

    Were I looking for a 9mm revolver the top of the list would be the Chiappa Rhino 40ds. A distant second would be the S&W 986. I have trigger time with both of these and the Rhino is a step up in ergonomics (for me),trigger and recoil management.

    I want a 6" Charter Arms so badly, although I'm pretty sure the trigger is going to be the same as my regular PITBULL.
