Speedloaders...



I'm looking at speedloader options for wheel guns.

Ya'll have any thoughts?

Safariland Comp II's are a good way to go for carry. If you want something for competition take a look at the Comp III's.

Well, the technology hasn't changed much. HKS and Safariland are still the two major players; HKS speedloaders are cheaper but don't hold cartridges as securely. Safariland are more expensive and do.

A new option that is currently occurring is making relief cuts in the revolver's cylinder for use with full-moon clips. Smith and Wesson is even shipping revolvers from the factory with this alteration, I've seen J-frame models for sale featuring it.

I use and like the Safariland ones with my S&W 442 and Ruger Police Service Six.

Caleb had a post fairly recently about speedloaders, that was interesting.

Let me go dig it up for you.

Ok, found it.

Actually two...

First: talking about how Jerry Miculek reloads using moonclips, and observing that it may work with HKS speedloaders as well.

Second: talking about how the relief cut in the Crimson Trace grip for the GP100 sometimes interfered with his reloads, and a pair of solutions.

Joe, I'm trying the Safariland now, and liking it.

Bob, A full moon set up sounds like a great answer. Not sure I want to spend that kind of money right now. I'll have to check out costs.

Freddy, Thank you!
