S&W 627 (8-shot .357) question

I thought that all 627's out of S&W's performance shop had the cylinders cut for moon clips. So, I saw this one one Gunbroker, and it doesn't have the cuts. http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/Vie...Item=501394752

Would someone more knowledgeable than I tell me if this is normal (and I just haven't seen enough of them to know this), ....unusual ...or a mistake?

The photo shows the front of the cylinder, not the back, where the cuts would be. I think they're showing the front to show it's unfired condition.

I think the 5 inch V-comp is the one with moon clips.

I've had one new in my hand while at my LGS - they're not cut for moon clips. They have chamfered charge holes, but not cut for clips.

Roughedge is correct that the V-comp (also called the V-8) is cut for moon clips. I have one. Great gun. Can't speak to the others in the 627 family.

I have an older 627 8-shot 5 in barrel Performance Center revolver cut for moonclips. Thought all were like that. Bob

After doing a double take: Ooops!

In a 2.5 incher I had (2015 manufacture) it took moon clips or individual rounds.

Funny I was reading this thread thinking "wait for it, wait for it......"

I was expecting something along the lines of if your loading it that way your doing it wrong.
