    Not really as the Taurus 905 is still out there, but not selling that well. It would mean using clips for the ammo unless the designers come up with way to do away with them. Charter Arms has made a lot of semi auto pistol ammo in revolver models. While there are small cliques who like them the market is not huge for those.

    The Taurus .380 revolver is still with us, but is also not breaking sales records. There is a small dedicated following. Then again.... I could be wrong. I thought the Judge series would tank some time back and it did not.

    On second thought a 3" barrel of the 856 in 9mm. might be interesting. Colt and Kimber are offering 3" barrel guns, but just in .357 magnum and .38 Special.

    9mm snubs come and go. Never enduringly popular.

    True. But it would be a pretty easy model to make. Same frame. Maybe the same barrel. New cylinder. They might even be able to make a convertible model.

    It would mean using clips for the ammo

    Reload with 38 Colt or shortened 38 sp and they will eject just like any other revolver

    Nope, not me.
    For one, what gain, if any, do you get over 38+p or 357 magnum rounds in the same gun?
    And I refuse to use half or full moon clips in ANY revolver.
    Plus, the slowest selling revolvers in any gun shop are those that handle Semi-auto rounds using clips.
    Again, nope. I'll stick to my 357 magnums.

    You mean a nice light 9mm revolver to go with my G2C ? Nah, I'll pass. Moon clips just doesn't do it. When unloading or loading a revolver becomes more of a hassle because of the moon clips it's just not worth it to me. I'll take my good ole 38 anytime.

    Other than the fact that they're revolvers, they're not much in common. I'm talking about a small carry gun. The 962 isn't that.
