Looks ridiculous but...

At first glance this looks ridiculous. But actually a magazine is a brilliant way to carry extra ammo for a revolver. Rig an ammo belt with several mags and with practice it would be easy to strip rounds one-handed to reload.

There's an app for that.




BTW, I don't know of many mags for .38 special, .357, .44, etc.

There are revolvers that shoot 9mm, .40, .45, etc., but they require moon clips for extraction, and in some cases to keep position in the cylinder. So would you be popping single rounds off the mag with one hand, inserting them into the moon clips with your other two hands, while holding your revolver with the fourth hand? Not going to work unless you plan to take 5 and squat on the ground and get busy.


People who carry revolvers that require moon clips generally carry their reloads preloaded in other moon clips. It takes a bit of time and precision. Loading the moon clips with loose rounds taken from a mag is not something you want to be doing in a stressful or time critical situation.

Most any ammo that will fit in a semi auto magazine has a rebated (non protruding) rim and has to be loaded like this before you can use it in a revolver. See the problem?
