Default .40 S&W Revolver?



Advertise Here

I am looking for a revolver that is chambered in .40 S&W. I have heard of some that are for 10mm but will also fire the .40 much like a .357/.38special. I can't remember the make and model of that gun though. Do any of you own one of these? I have a few guns all in .40 and I would like to have a revolver in the same caliber for my wife. Thanks for the help.

What frames are those on? I know nothing about revolvers and I want to change that with this next gun purchase.

Smith and Wesson 610 & 310. Uses moon clips and shoots .40 or 10mm. Nice idea, but the price is stiff.

Only the S&W 610 and 310 right now. It's an N frame gun. I hunted once with a buddies 6.5" classic but it's not a size efficient gun for the caliber. Like the others said, they will also shoot 40 S&W in the moon clips although I never tried. It is however, very, very accurate.

Can still get either of them but if I had to choose a dual caliber revolver, it would be 45 Colt/ACP with the simple moon clip conversion available on most any of them. I would look at the Ruger Redhawk.

Smith used to make a J-frame snubby in .40 S&W, they don't list it now but with some looking you should be able to find one if that's something interesting.

It was a K frame snubbie. The J frame was in 9x19. The J frame is just not big enough for the .40, but the K frame is. It was a five shooter, though, like the J frames, and there was an awful lot of gunsmithing that went into building it.

40 was designed for a semi auto. In a revolver there is gas escape at the cylinder gap. Makes your 40 into a peashooter... Think: 380 semi auto, about same power as a 38 spl out of a revolver. That said its a cool idea for one caliber choice if you prefer revolvers...

A peashooter? Really, how do you figure?

I'm afraid that you should really do some research on cylinder gap loss and actual velocity numbers before making statements such as this.

For example, even if you did lose say, 200fps (which you wouldn't), the .40 with a 180gr bullet will still have more energy than a 158gr .38 caliber bullet at the same velocity, say 750-800fps. Mass = retained energy.

I own a S&W semi auto SD40VE. I have never seen a 40 cal revolver are they new? Wouldn't you have to use moon clips or a special kind of boat tail style 40 cal ammo so your ammo ain't flopping around and or falling out? Regardless I'd not try and use 10MM ammo in one if I were you for the above mentioned reasons and more. I would love to see a picture of that 40 cal S&W revolver cylinder design. Now, I am not calling you a liar or full of bull but a 40 cal revolver sounds kind of fishy to me. Plus I love to be proven wrong that is how I learn new things! Heck I tell people I own two S&W 41 magnums and 75% of them look at me like I crazy!
God bless you and yours!

Uhhhh I guess I should have read the other peoples post first. So I guess a 40 cal revolver does exist and probably does use moon clips. I stand corrected. So I did learn sumpin' new today? Alright!

It would be a 10mm revolver, that you could shoot 40 s&w in. Shooting 10mm through a 40 s&w gun is a great way to blow up your gun.

I've always wanted to check these out. They use a design that doesn't require moon clips, which is huge imo.

Hmm, odd zombie thread...

That said, why would one look for a revolver in 40 or frankly 10mm? I am a big fan of the 10mm but don't care for 40 personally. That aside, there are semis that run these round, but obviously not both. Additionally, there are a multitude of revolver rounds that fit most needs.

Not a slam, but I am curious why the need. Just to shoot 10mm and 40 out of a gun?

Smith & Wesson 646 is the only factory .40 cal revolver that I know of. Made for a gun game and then they changed the rules....

Good point, especially since you can get an SAA or a Ruger Vaquero in .38-40 and realize the same performance!
