For those of you who have the 905 9mm is there a shell case stop pin poking out by the firing pin to keep the tapered shells from backing out when fired like on the S&W 547 9mm revolver? Anyone have pics of this area around the firing pin thanks, Rj
Short answer, after getting my 905 out of my pocket, and looking at it unloaded!!
No there is not a pin or anything else that keeps the shells in place.
I do not have camera up today, but the stellar clips keep all 5 rds in the same place in mine. I am sure If I was not using the clips, some of the rds would back out a bit, but not by the time they reached the firing position.
I used the stellar clip a few times but found it useless. It is made, as I understand it, to make shell ejection possible. I have found it easier for me to just pluck each spent shell with my fingers. Sure makes reloading much faster.
Well, I know you can get the casings out with fingers, which is ok for the Range. But I carry at least one extra Stellar clip, so I could do a quick reload. If I am using the revolver speedloader belt package, I can carry 4 extra stellar's in the same space as two 357 or 45 colt reloads. That is a lot more ammo!
My only experience with 9mm and wheelguns was an old Ruger Blackhawk with the interchangeable cylinders: 38/357 and 9mm. I used the 9mm a lot, because 9mm surplus stuff was cheap and available then. But I never had a back-out problem, even with fairly hot handloads.
Had they done so, I think I would have felt some binding when the cylider revolved. Same hold true for BHawk in 45LC/45acp.
I think I read the proper sized prescription bottle will hold two securely. Also, with the proper tweaking, you can just put them in yer pocket. Maybe Robby will chime in on a real package for these, he's the m905 guru.
I have found that Wally World has a lot of small, belt mounted cases, mostly nylon, for use with cameras, and cell phones. Some are in the Photo section, some in the electronics section, and some are near the school supplies.
They range from about $10 to over $50.
I've been nosing around for an off-the-gun pouch for my Laserlyte Q.D. (Quick Disconnect) laser that normally lives on my PT-92.
Maybe you could find something there that you can use.
