    Default S&W J Frame Moon Clip Conversion

    Has anyone had a moon clip conversion done by Pinnacle? It looks like he is about $45 cheeper than TK Customs. It looks like his turn around time may be longer than TK. Thinking of having my S&W 642 converted.

    Enlighten me please.
    Why would one desire moon clips for a J-frame?

    Faster reloads is about the only reason for doing it.

    Smith and Wesson offers the 642(&442) with the moon clip cut from the factory.

    Very interesting. I have a speed loader which is totally useless on my j fame due to the thick rubber grips.

    Now I use speed strips. Not as fast but better than one at a time.
