  1. Flip the target over and shoot at a blank square. Eliminating that black dot will be one thing less to think about! Bet you shoot better.
  2. My cylinder change for my 586-7 from 7 shot to 6 shot took a little over 6 months at S&W. It also got a barrel replacement. It took them 3 months to tell me how much it would cost! They did do a fabulous job, but the wait was brutal.
  3. I've been using TK moonclips for Starline brass and Starline Colt Short brass for years. I had a lot of Starline brass and 100TK moonclips from shooting a 627 8 shot gun. I continue to shoot Colt Short in my 929's and a recent 586 that was converted to 9mm by TK Custom. Never a problem. My wife bought a used 929 with 50 TK .040 9mm moonclips, so she shoots 9mm in her 929. What are the pluses and minuses? 1...Starline Colt short accepts a .358" bullet nicer. 2...Starline Colt short brass snaps into the moonclip nicer. 3...The case bulge as mentioned above is noted as occurring, but I simply ignore it and never split a case at the base. 4...After years of shooting Colt short in my 627, and now 929 for years, I'm starting to get case end splits. I'll start to shoot new brass for this year and use the older brass for practice. It took years to see my first case split. 5...As much as I like shooting Colt short in my 929 and will continue to...…...the .040" 9mm TK moonclip holds up better than the .025" TK moonclip for Starline brass. 6...TK Custom does really nice work and has great products, but will always say to shoot 9mm in a 9mm gun and Colt short in a .357..627 gun. 7...If I had to help a new shooter with a 929, I think I'd recommend using the .040" TK moonclips and shoot Federal, Blazer type brass. The moonclips hold up better and Federal 9mm brass can be found easily.
  4. Yes, the 929 cylinder. Remember the 929 cylinder is slightly shorter than the standard .357" size.
  5. If you pull the cylinder out of a 929 and a 627 5" PC, and weigh them......the 929 cylinder will weigh exactly 4 ounces less. Back when we were shooting 6 shot major, the 5" 625 was the gun to have. But at the end of that era I shot a match, and the better shooters in my squad had 625's with 6"-6.5" Model 25 barrels and titanium cylinders. When we went to 8 shot major and got 627's with 5" barrels, those shooters got 627 Pro's, put on 6"-6.5" Model 27-28 barrels and titanium cylinders. The 929 gives the shooter a great starting setup. Still a lot of shooters like the style of the 627 series.
  6. And after the "make ready" command, an unloaded gun dropped is a DQ.
  7. My 929 shoots the same way. A one hole group of 5, with 3 on the outer edge. At 25 yards its under 2"s, so its good to go. On mine, I feel the throats in the cylinder are not perfect, causing the problem. Mine originally was shooting 4" groups at 25 yards with the same bullet pattern. 5 close and 3 fliers. A crown cut and forcing cone cut brought the group size down dramatically, but still has the 5 in tight and 3 just outside. But with a total group size under 2" at 25 yards, I'm happy.
  8. I shoot Colt Shorts thru mine with zero misfires with moon clips. Without moon clips, it will misfire. Not sure why, just saying my 929 needs moon clips.
  9. I bought it used like that, and the guy I bought it from, bought it used like that.
  10. I'm having a little trouble posting pictures, but the slower gun had around 1/2" cut off the front of the barrel.
  11. I got another 929 for my wife, and taking both guns to the range for chrono......they are 4-5 PF off from each other. Mine is the 929 with the end cap removed, and hers had the front trimmed down and re-crowned. The trimmed down one is the slower gun. They are both accurate with .358 bullets, but is this sorta normal between revolvers? Also the slower gun has a 6 thou. space between the barrel and cylinder, and mine is around 9 thou.
  12. That's got to be an expensive match feeding a 500 S&W!!!
