Moon Clip Tool
The current tools  are Red / Black two-tone like the one above.  Note:  My Laser Engraver has taken an extended vacation and the current batch of tools are not engraved with the website name on the back.



There are plenty of tools out there to load or  strip moon clips.  This is the only tool out there that does both.  Stop hurting your fingers.  It is CNC machined out of aluminum and hard anodized.  Mooncliptools are made in the USA by a machinist who is an avid shooter.



627, 625, 610 & Governor

 If you own a S&W  45 ACP revolver or any other revolver that uses moonclips you need one.



Easy loading

 Place the moon clip on the arbor and use the lever to load the round into the clip.  The lever has a spring return for easy one hand operation.

Easy unloading

The other end of the tool with the ring is for stripping the clips. There is a recess cut that the moon clip bears against that gives you a huge mechanical advantage.  The casing is pryed out and then drops through the hole.

Newtool

We started making these tools in 1990 after the 625 arrived on the scene and pin shooting became popular.  Over the years the popularity of using moonclips with revolvers has skyrocketed and we are always updating the tool to make it better.  You can see the evolution in the above picture from top to bottom.  The tool was originally designed for just .loading 45 ACP.  We then added a demooning ring, then a return spring.  It has since been re-designed to also work with the other popular moonclip calibers.  The lever now has more clearance.  The geometry has been tweaked.  There are now two postions for the arbor so it can be moved closer to the lever.  The outer postion is for N/K/L frame moonclips and the inner position is for J frame moonclips.  There is also a hole near the demooning end of the moonclip where you can store a spare arbor.  We have recently changed the profile of the tool by adding a radius to the bottom of the tool which feels more comfortable in your hand.



Demooning 8 Shot Moonclip

The demooning part of the tool has 2 demooning rings.  The larger ring on the left is for .45 ACP.  The smaller ring on the right is for .40 caliber and under where the rounds are more closely spaced in the moonclip.


Price: $39.95 (with one arbor any caliber) plus $5.80 for priority mail shipping in the CONUS.  

If you order just moonclips or arbors and the total is under $30.00, shipping will be $3.00 via 1st class mail .

Laser Engraving

Note: One of our competitors with an inferior tool has stolen our design rather than trying to improve his own.  While copying our tool may be the sincerest form of flattery, using the pictures and descriptions off my website was not.  Trying to sell the copy as a genuine mooncliptool and leech of our reputation was crossing the line.  The knock-off looks similar but it is not the same internally. 
The difference in how the tool works and feels is major.  We have recently changed the profile of our tool by adding the radius on the bottom which feels more comfortable in your hand.  Our tool is only available online and NOT through any catalog.  Please don't be fooled by this Copy Cat Wannabe and end up with an inferior tool.



Arbors for other Calibers / Revolvers
Arbor

The tool is universal and will work with most moonclips.  The only thing you need to do to change calibers is swap arbors.  The tool comes with one arbor (caliber of your choice).  You only need to buy an extra arbor if you want to use your tool with more than one caliber.   I currently stock arbors for the following:


6 shot 45 ACP N Frame .575" Diameter Arbor (S&W 25, 325, 625, S&W / Colt 1917, S&W Governor)
8 shot .357 N Frame .675" Diameter Arbor (S&W 327, 627, R8 etc.)
8 shot .357 & 9MM N Frame .590" Dia Arbor (S&W 627 HearthCo .357 , S&W 929 9MM Round Hole Moonclips )
8 shot 9MM / .38 Super N Frame .708" Diameter Arbor (S&W 929 9MM Octagon Hole Moonclips, S&W 627 38 Super)

Note: If you don't see an arbor listed for your gun I will be happy to make a custom arbor.  This will however require you sending me a sample moonclip with your order (I will return the moonclip).


11/01/2014: S&W 986 and 929 Info

986 and 929 Moonclips are now in stock! 

S&W 986: I have found in the past few months that the center hole of all 986 moonclips tend to be a few thousandths smaller than 686+ moonclips.  I have reduced the 7 shot .357 / 9MM abor to .530" nominal diameter so that it will accommodate all 7 shot .357 / 9MM moonclips.  If you are having problems with your 986 moonclips fitting too tightly or buying 986 moonclips from me and have a tool / arbor bought prior to 10/01/2014 please send your arbor to me and I will be happy to turn it down to .530" for you.


S&W 929: I get alot of questions about arbors for the 929.  The guns seem to be shipping with round hole moonclips that use the .590" arbor.  Some people are also using the 38 Super Octagon hole moonclips that were originally designed for the 38 Super 627.  These are the 929 moonclips that I am selling.  If you want to use these you will need the .708" arbor to use the tool with these moonclips.  At this time I do not own a 929 so all I can do is post what people are telling me.
