This is the checker for the 8 shot Model 627 revolver chambered in 38 Special and 357 Magnum and can also check for the proper operation of 38 Colt rounds.
This is used to check your moon clip without putting the ammunition into the chamber. If the loaded moon clip fits in this checker, it will fit in your gun!

safe time saver
Great product and allows checking the loaded moon clips without having any part of a weapon in the area.
Nice tool, very well-made. I feel safer using it than I do checking the moon clips with a gun
I love this checker. It is really handy for checking my moons without needing to put in my revolver. Wish I would have purchased one sooner.
Work's Great !
I use this after loading moon clips. Check alignment before going to range.
Why did I wait so long, price
a must if you reload your moon clips at a competition match.
This gizmo works great - I have found the odd loaded clip that won't chamber, and it is a lot better to find that out before you get to the range for a practice or competition. GM-Exactly as it's supposed to work.
Moon Clip Checker 38/357 S&W 627
I was not sure the value of a moon clip checker would be proven but, I thought I would give it a test spin and placed my order. With a match a few days away, I loaded 300 round and gauge checked each round, finding one "bad" round. After loading 30 moon clips, I used my new moon clip checker, I didn't think any clip would not pass - I had gauged each round. One moon clip, when loaded, would not gauge in the moon clip checker. Proof it works, value added to my range bag. GM- 4 stars come on ;-) ....Seriously these checkers really do work. After checking you don't have to think about if your moon clip will go into your cylinder!!
Easy operation & testing
Finish is of a high standard, tolerances are good, haven't tried it with fired brass but with new Starline Brass fits perfectly. Only improvement I could suggest is the overall length, perhaps if it was made for the MAX OVERALL LENGTH (357 Reviewed) GM-OAL is for 627 revolvers.
Nice secure easy operation
Fit & finish is good, fitted the new Starline brass well & negotiable play once loaded, easier to load/unload than OEM clips.
