    Just listed Guns International #101256293. These are uncommon and the price is not that unreasonable. No connection to seller.

    It’s a 547?

    Someone else can copy and paste those numbers. I’m spoiled by direct links.

    I passed on one of these last year for $500, now kicking myself. It was a really nice French police trade-in. Interesting extractor design, though God forbid you need any parts replaced nowadays.

    I passed on one few years ago with tag of $850. VG condition no box. Its an interesting design worth some extra coin. A 9mm Luger service revolver is weird in good kinda way.

    I was very interested in them in about 2009 and a typical GB sold price was around $800 which was a little high for me back then.

    I had quite a collection of 9mm revolvers at that time too. Smith 940, Sp101, and a quite rare Speed Six. Got rid of them all over time for new projects.

    I remember when these first came out. Interesting design but at that current price, way too steep for my wallet!

    Forget that. I would by a $300-$350 Model 10 Heavy Barrel or Model 64 and send it to TK Custom for conversion to 9mm and then have a moonclip feed gun that could shoot 38 Special or 9mm on moonclips. I would much MUCH rather have moonclips than the silly extractor for running 9mm without moonclips.

    That's an interesting idea. I'm looking at a M64 now for $300. I wonder if you could shoot +P after the conversion. TK says no "high pressure" loads afterward. For $700 I could have a M64 that could shoot either 9mm or 38 spl.

    Yeah I think you would be find with 38 Special +P but not 9mm +P. I talked to them through and email exchange and he said he would do the 9mm conversion on a newer Model 10/64 that was +P rated and that as long as you did not push the 9mm pass regular 9mm pressures you would have no issue shooting either cartridge. I ultimately have not done it to my Model 10 but mostly because at present I do not own a single 9mm handgun other than the 9mm conversion cylinder for my Blackhawk.

    This might be of interest here:

    This is a to scale drawing (CAD) a minimum spec 357 Magnum chamber in Black and a minimum spec 9mm Luger chamber in Blue. As you can see the 9mm chamber is only slightly larger in diameter at the base.

    I bought a 9mm conversion cylinder for my Blackhawk instead. It was a cheap solution.

    I did not see today's collector prices coming. I bought a new 3" 547 back when they were in production, paying whatever the going price was at the time. Many years later bought another LNIB 3" 547 at a gun show for $325.00. Seller seemed glad to be rid of what he apparently saw as a weird/undesirable gun. Sold both along the way for about what I paid for them IIRC. FWIW, both were trouble free revolvers with any ammo I used, and that unique extraction system worked as designed. I've owned several other 9MM revolvers, but sure wish I'd kept one of the 547s...:(

    Waveski, An out of production S&W, or Colt, revolver routinely becomes a "collectors item".

    A suggestion was made to me that the best way to do the conversion would be to get another M64 cylinder converted to 9mm. It starts getting pricey but it would almost be like having two guns. I apologize for drifting off topic. I should start another thread about the conversion. Thanks for the info.
