    9mm conversion cylinder for the model 605

    I would love to see a 9mm conversion cylinder for the model 605. I personally own two 605's and would definitely purchase conversion cylinders for them both. The cost difference in ammo would make up the price in short order.

    Why not sell one of your 605's and buy a 905? The cost of acquiring a 9mm cylinder (from a 905, possibly - if that would even work) and having a very good 'smith fit it, would be cost prohibitive, and be a 100% out-of-pocket expense. Selling and then buying a 905 would result in very little $$ out of pocket (if any).

    Cause my wife and I both love our 605s. I could just get an additional 905, but having the conversion would be cooler.

    I really like that idea! I’ve always liked the idea of conversion cylinders, Ruger style. Really cool. I imagine that has crossed their minds, and they’ve decided that there’s not enough demand, or any demand, for the expense.
