David Sinko Posted January 11, 2007 Share Posted January 11, 2007 I have a S&W 627-4 8X.38 Super which I bought new a while back. As I see it, S&W could've made this gun to fire without moonclips but for some reason did not. My 625 will hold and fire individual rounds just fine, so why couldn't the 627 be made the same way? My guess is that they could've but just didn't want to bother. I don't like having to depend on moonclips for the gun to fire. Also, this gun will not shoot cast bullets at all. I have tired all shapes and sizes from .355" to .357" and they literally hit sideways at six feet. But it shoots plated bullets beautifully. The cylinder locks up properly so my guess is the chambers were not bored properly. Does anybody else have the same experiences? This is a good gun but I believe S&W did not care to invest the time and effort (expense) to make it a great gun. Dave Sinko Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
