    I usually defer to my serious revolver friends at Apex Tactical Specialties who recommend HearthCo moon clips and TK Custom

    Why do you need machine work for moon clips?

    If you don't machine a clearance, the cylinder won't close when you insert moonclipped rounds...as they attach in front of the rims

    Yes, as the moonclips would ride atop the recesses...I'm taking that you meant cylinders with recesses for the cartridge rims so that they sit flush with the back of the cylinder...I'm not aware of Rugers with recessed cylinders

    I would consider it a sin to convert that to use moon clips

    I think it might have been a little sin just to ask about it.
