Is there such a gun?? I was wondering about these and .45acp revolvers. I try to keep my guns on the same caliber so that I can shoot the same ammo and buy easier in bulk. Eventually, i'll get a magnum revolver of some sort, but I'm curious if there are any revolvers chambered in these two rounds.

No 9mm, but there are 10mm and .45ACP revolvers listed in the Roster.

IF you really wanted a 9mm revolver, I think you could have a .38spl revolver machined by a gunsmith to properly chamber 9mm if it was really worth it to you.

I have a single action Blackhawk convertible with a 9mm cylinder I can swap out with a 357 Mag/38 cylinder.

Works good though the 9mm is like stepping on a plum compared to the .357 in the same gun.

I think you can use the moonclips in a .45 Long Colt type revolver for .45ACP useage.

duh, forgot that many single-action revolvers are exempt from the roster. That will open up your options.

such as the ruger single-action convertable revolvers that Can'thavenuthingood linked to. Ruger offers 9mm/.357 and .45ACP/.45colt versions.

YOu could also special order a 9mm single-action revolver and have transfered as a roster-exempt firearm as long as it met the minimum dimensions.

Find someone with an S&W 547 (http://www.vintagepistols.com/range_report_S&W_547.html), and PPT it. Or a Ruger SP-101 (http://www.snubnose.info/docs/sp101_2.htm).

The Ruger, now discontinued, uses moonclips. The S&W, also long disco'ed, has a unique ejector star, no moonclip required.

I understand that Charter Arms has revolvers chambered in 9mm, 40 S&W, and I believe 45 ACP currently in the works. I do not know if they will submit them to be tested for sale in CA. You could contact them and ask.

I think Taurus makes a 9mm revolver, however, good luck finding on here in Calif as they are not on the "safe" list.

+1 on the Charter Arms. Everything they sell, they submit for CA rostering and I would expect this would be no different. Should be available later this year. Stay tuned.

They will also offer the revolver in .40 and .45 acp as well. I plan to own one or more, would like to have the whole set!

A 10mm/.40 full sized revolver would be neat to own also :)
