HKS and Safariland have 5 shot speedloaders that work for the 605. These are ones made ofr the Taurus 85 as well as S&W J framed 5 shooters. If you get the Safariland ones, make it the Comp II ones. These are more dureable than the I model and easier to hide than the III models. IIIs are much larger for competition than for street carry. Could be done, but are harder to find a pouch for that will hide easily. HKS are durable and need a twist of the knob to loosen the the cartridges and let them fall into the cylinder. These are easy to use and dureable as well. Should last a lifetime of use. Safarilands have a spring loaded button that is pushed for the release of the rounds. Dureability might be a problem as spring have been known to wear out over time. Many swear by the Comp models and have no trouble at all. The springs on the Comp I have been known to be weak and release rounds to early or just drop them becasue of the spring. Not all do, but it is a consideration. Buying a CompII and a HKS and experimenting with both would give you an idea on which you yourself prefer. There are pluses to both models and maybe a pitfall, depending on your personal point of view. I have nothing bit HKSs for my 4 revolvers and have had excellent service from them. Bianchi Speed Strips let you carry 5 or six rounds in a flat manner compared to bulky speedloaders. These peel the rounds off into the cylinder 1 at a time into the cylinder. Takes some practice and they are slower than a speedloader. How ever you may not need to fill all 5 chambers at the same time and need only a couple of rounds. This saves dumping any unfired rounds with the fired ones when what ammo you have may be needed later. Trying to sort out fired from unfired cartridges in a gunfight is time consuming,fumble prone, and could get you shot when your attention needs to be on the fight.Heck,they even make an HKS for the model 94 in .22lrf. Both Safariland and HKS have web sites.
