Thats for checking with TK for me. Guess I'm better off getting a standard 45 colt redhawk and having the cylinder machined for TK moon clips

TK Custom will be a good outfit to work with. They charge for the alteration plus 10 TK moon clips for 45 ACP on a Ruger Redhawk. About $175.00 for just the alteration and 10 stainless steel moon clips. I believe a loader for the cartridges to the moon clips can be added. You should also include purchasing the tool for removing the spent cartridges without damaging the moon clips.

I understand that I'm cheap. I just don't understand $70 moonclips to replace $10-$15 speed loader. Of all the guns that I have sold or traded the only one I truly long for it's return is the 1917 S&W. Moon clips are great in there place, after you bend one and it ties up the gun they lose their appeal. Moonclips might be a bit faster than speed loaders in the world of range timers, but not so much in the real world. OF COURSE WANT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH PRACTICALITY NOR SHOULD PRACTICALITY EVER STOP US FROM GETTING WANT LIFTS OUR SKIRTS.

For field use moon clips have a huge appeal to me. I can have a couple cylinders full of full patch loads, and a cylinder full of small game loads. Very simply to swap out between the two and now fumbling or dropping rounds with cold hands.

The Ruger Redhawk convertible 45 Colt/45 ACP could be altered to take TK Custom moon clips by sending the cylinder from it to TK Custom. Their moon clip dimension should cleanup the area of the cylinder that was made for the Ruger style moon clip. Call TK to make sure though.
