Taurus 905 Model 905SS2 9mm Luger, $528

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

The 905 was faster to reload than a traditional 38 Special and performed well. The trigger and sights were serviceable, and that is reflected in the lower cost.

The 905 has a detent built into the crane (arrow) that sank into a notch in the frame to lock the cylinder in the front. Lock up was tight on the Taurus 905, with no gap between the crane and frame.
Moon clips make loading the 905 fast because the 9mm cartridges are tapered and short. Taurus provides five moon clips with the 905 revolver.
Note where the cartridge case is hitting the frame; we experienced this condition after about 200 continuous rounds. We also encountered some binding due to fouling.
