I'm sure it's a solid revolver but boy is it ugly.

Butt Ugly for sure, but if it prints, who cares?

That should be some VERY manageable recoil!

I don't trust 9MM ammo in a revolver:

It does seem pretty high. $300+ more MSRP than a Smith Performance Center 929. Even higher than the new Colt Python.

Street price may come off that a lot.

That video is useless. He measures the subject round against another round in the box. There is normal variation in a box of ammo. And then he didn't give the measurements. Did it move 1 thousandth? 15 thousandths?

Nice pistol I like it and the price is really decent. I don't think it looks bad at all and if anything it looks kind of modern. I really like Ruger pistols and have 3 of them, a Mark, a stainless shopkeeper, and single six and they are all .22's.

Congrats.
Only the weight and thickness is a no-go for me. It's two reasons why I don't own any wheel guns.

I carry a wheelgun in my pocket every day. They come in all sorts of sizes.

In a Ruger Blackhawk convertible with the 9m/m cylinder, it works dandy - no moon clips needed and extraction is 100%

Speed loader vs moon clips. Case closed

It's faster,, more efficient and more accurate to call it what it is... a revolver.
Wheelgun is a silly term.

You didn't explain anything. Moon clips work just fine. This is also a competition gun where moon clips dominate.

Revolver and thin do not usually go in the same sentence. Please offer us a thin, light (under 1.10" thin) revolver name in 38 Special....or higher caliber?
I'd love to own one. But not if it bulges in my pocket or leans to pocket bottom because of weight.... and I never wear cargo pants for extra conceal.

Both of my pocket carries are real thin and real light, in normal jeans/dress pants-type carries.

Both of my pocket carries are under one inch wide.

Not all widths are created equal. Revolvers are wide at one point, and it's in the middle. The rest of the gun is narrower and tends to be more rounded. Autos are their width through the entire gun and very square which prints more easily. A revolver with similar size outline will carry more discreetly than an auto. The only way you're getting more discreet pocket carry than a j-frame is by going to the very tiny autos in sub 9mm calibers.

You post a YouTube video of a naturally gifted shooter in a competition using silly moon clips. Go back and find some of every day folks or even law enforcement officers in real life situations and you might scrounge up some validity to your argument.

Were your wheelguns cut for moon clips? What experience do you have with moon clips? What do you know that all the competition shooters don't?

They're normally on the search for more old S&W revolvers.

My revolvers are. 38/.357 and one. 22. Speed loaders only for all of them.
State issued duty gun was Model 66 off duty gun was a Colt Detectives Special. Speed loaders for both.
Don't care what competition shooters do or think.

Then why are you commenting in a thread about...a competition gun?

I have owned and used guns that required moon clips...or at least needed them to make unloading tolerable(45 ACP). I don't particularly like loading ammunition into moonclips or taking the empties out, but nothing makes for faster loads. They're also a lot smaller and lighter than speed loaders.

The subject gun should be a fast shooting and accurate competition gun, where many/most shooters will be using moon clips anyway regardless of the caliber used. There's not a faster way to load a revolver than dropping in a loaded moon clip.
