    Hello guys. I have been using HKS speedloaders on my revolver. These things are reliable, but rather slow, and in my fumbling hands tend to rub against the gun's rubber grip.

    I want to try those "Bianchi speedstrips". Before I get my secretary to call every gunstore in Manila, perhaps some BOG has seen Bianchi speedstrips in some Manila gunstore, or you know of them being in stock somewhere locally? Thanks.

    Hahn-Manila stocks them last I looked. One thing nice about speed strips is that they carry flat and fit nicely in your pocket. They even have little wallet like thingies for storing them. Can't say the same for the bulk of the revolver's cylinder though:)

    Looks like it would be slower to reload using the speedstrips than the speedloaders. How about moonclips, but you have to modify the gun to accept those.

    Yes, but I would feel really bad if some smith ruined my 686+ by incorrectly gouging out the loading holes in the cylinder .

    But, now that you bring it up -> ****** Can anyone recommend a smith who has done this sort of thing before (converting a non-moonclip cylinder like a 686+'s to accept moonclips)*******? Oh, I'd be willing to spend a lot for a good local smith who can do that. Yes, I agree, that would be the optimal solution.

    (The main problem I have with the HKS speedloaders is that they rub against the rubber grips, so a speedstrip in this case might really be faster. Some day I might dremel/somehow rub down the part of the grip that interferes with the speedloader, but that would look pretty bad. )
