Does anybody make a revolver chambered in 9mm Luger? I've already got a Hi-Point Carbine, Ruger P89, and a Cobra Derringer all in 9mm. I was just wondering if there were ever any revolvers made in that calibur, you know kinda complete the collection.
Smith & Wesson made the 940, a five shot, J-frame, snubby.
Ruger made a 9mm in the Security Six series, also a snubby.
Taurus made one years ago, but no longer offer it.
Ruger also made a Blackhawk single action revolver with a 9mm cylinder. They don't anymore.
You will have to find the gun on the used gun market. The S&W is pricey, the last one I saw on auction arms went for aboiut $900. I haven't seen the Ruger version in years, a rare gun.
9mm is an autoloader rimless cartridge. It can't be fired in a revolver without moon clips. Same goes for .45ACP though it is a popular chambering for a revolver.
Why not try something different, I'd get bored just owning tons of guns all chambered for the same round.
Just get a .357 magnum or .38 from Taurus, cheap and a very underrated company.
As mentioned, Ruger has made at least two 9mm revolvers and Smith & Wesson has made at least the Model 940 (a 9mm Centennial). However, it appears as though many people have forgotten that the original Colt Manufacturing Company (before it went belly-up) designed and marketed a 9mm revolver based off the Commando. This particular revolver was more a WTSHTF revolver that chambered for about 20 different versions of the 9mm cartridge. Conceptually, this would be an ideal revolver to own. [If anybody remembers the actual name of this particular Colt revolver, I hope they would share it!]
Have a great day!
They pop up every now and again at guns shops and shows.
Smith and Wesson made the 547 and 940
Ruger had the Sp-101 in 9mm, the security six, and blackhawk conversion cylinders as mentioned before.
Taurus made the model 905
All are now discontinued but can be found sometimes.
I think the S&W 940 and Ruger Sp-101 are both great and will pick up the next one I find for a fair price.
BOUND: The multicaliber revolver your talking about was called the Medusa
Pretty neat gun; also discontinued I believe
Check out he below link to an article Popular Mechanics did on it:
That multi-caliber pistol you were thinking about was called the Medusa.
After Colt went under, another company (I can't remember the name, but they made bored through cylinders to fit to cap-and-ball revolvers.) licensed the rights and they to promptly went belly up. Seems like it might be a snake-bit project.
