Did a search here and on google. Not a lot of info.

Where can we find speed loaders?

What's the best/easiest scope mount?

Your choice of ammo?

Your choice of holster?

Getting ready to DROS an unfired 1999 model. Thanks for the input

Speedloaders? Seriously? Well, you could use a tube of some sort maybe, or thumb rounds into the loading gate from a semi-auto's magazine...

The Weigand drill'n'tap mount is the best.


It's a lot easier than you'd expect. You take the stock rear sight off, bolt it to the screw where the rear sight elevation normally goes, and then use the mount itself as the alignment tool to do the next two holes.

It'll take any holster for a large-frame Blackhawk or SuperBlackhawk of the same barrel length. What kind of holster are you looking for? There's a ton of options...although for a *scoped* gun, the choices are more limited.

Reeder has some rigs:


You might also give SimplyRugged a call, see if they can do one of their Threepersons setups that way:


A "pancake" type is out of the question for a scope rig.

the closest thing to a speedloader you will find will be an extra cylinder

No speed loaders for it due to being single action but you can get some speed strips.

Right. And the way to use speed strips or the like with an SA wheelgun is to hold them between your thumb and forefinger and rip the rubber off all six at once with your teeth.

Seriously. You're only pulling from one at a time, the stress isn't bad. This leaves you holding all six in perfect position to load 'em.
