Moon clip question

I have a Smith 442 no lock airweight, they are making the new ones so they will take moon clips,
If I was too trade up am I stuck with moon clips forever or can I load just a round at a time?
Regards
DW

Can load most moon clip guns without clip.
Because of spacing, ignition may be iffy.
Extraction will require a wood or plastic rod on some cylinders.

Some charge holes will let case fall out.
I found that nickel cases came out easiest.

My experience is with 9mm, .40, .45 and 10mm moon clips.
Not .38 or .357 guns.

The ones I've seen for rimmed cases like the 38/357, they only machine away the metal from the outside edge of the cylinder for the moon clip to sit. This way you can use moon clips or not, and the gun will still function & eject either way.

My only concern, since I have a couple of 45 revolvers that use moon clips, is the ones I've seen for 38/357, 44 mag, etc... seemed kinda flimsy - looked too easy to bend.

Hope this helps,
Bob S.

I don't know about them being from the factory - the ones I've seen are from...
