Video - Taurus 905 9mm snubbie

The Taurus model 905 is a five-shot snubnose revolver that is chambered for the 9mm Luger round. Though this round is usually shot in autopistols the 905 chambers them using moon clips...or stellar clips, as Taurus calls them.

I've always had a soft spot for .45 ACP revolver. I have four of them, but this is my first 9mm.

Nice video review. I have the Taurus 405,
which is similar to the 905. The 405 is in
40 S&W, and is a five shot and a K frame
size. And the TK Custom moon clips are
much higher quality than those supplied by

Timely video

Your posting is timely as a buddy of mine just bought one, in blue. I will have to admit that I tried to second guess his selection and frankly, he really did not have any particualr reason to buy one. I have since phoned him about your video and the prefered source of the moon-clips. Needless to say, he was very pleased with what I had to say. .....

Thanks again and;

Have you chronographed the 115gr loads from this gun? That was a cool vid and made me think about a 9mm snubby. I am just curious how it stacks up against lite bullet +P 38s from a similar gun.

Interesting little revolver

I'd prefer a model with a bobbed /double action only hammer though. But a snubnosed revolver that shoots 9mm, my favorite round? Heck yeah I'll take it! For that matter, I'll take a couple for good measure (you know, in case of zombies, pink elephants, Murphy's Law, etc.)
