    Anybody have any experience with these guns? They seem to be pretty rare and go for around 1k. S&W was selling them with old style Registered Magnum certificates. I think there were several variants...

    Also, any 8-shot speed loaders out there one could use for this baby?

    If I can't get a hold of one of these, I'm just gonna hunt for one of its many ancestors. I imagine they're just as if not more nice. Thanks all.

    Speed-Loaders?
    It's very possible it is cut for full-moon clips.
    A lot of the 8-shot .357 Performance Center guns are.

    And they beat speed-loaders every which way!

    Well, that'd be fine with me. It's just that having shot only single action guns, I was looking forward to making full use of all these silly things DA owners have to play with. :D

    Even if they are cut for moon-clips, that would not prevent you from single loading, or using speed loaders.

    So, you'd have all kinds of things to play with.

    I have the 627-5PC, which is almost the same thing in stainless. It is a great revo. I don't use the moon clips much, but mine is very accurate with a great trigger action. I think 5" is the best length for an N frame barrel.
