Tim J: 9mm Revolvers Aplenty
Several GT Readers share information about 9mm wheelguns, including models from Ruger and Taurus. Reader McKinnon wonders about his M&P9. And why no dings for heavy triggers?
Rugers very nice single-action New Model Blackhawk Convertible is available (MSRP is $636, but some sellers offer new ones for under $500) in a version that can chamber 357 Magnum/38 Special rounds in one 6-round cylinder, and 9mm rounds in a second cylinder. Barrel lengths available are 4.62 inches and 6.5 inches. You can change cylinders quickly and easily without tools. I used to own one of these which, unfortunately, I sold when I needed the cash. It was the most accurate handgun Ive ever fired. I managed one five-shot group at 25 feet that I can cover with a quarter. Theres another version with cylinders for 45 Long Colt and 45 ACP, with barrel lengths of 4.62 inches and 5.5 inches, also a six-shooter, at the same price.
