DAA Magnetic 8-Shot 9mm Moon Clip Holder
Our popular magnetic Moon Clip Holder is now available for the 8 shot 9mm! These are suitable for the moon clips as used in the S&W 929, and can handle both 9mm and longer .38/.357 ammo.
The concept of holding the moon clip magnetically is not a new one, but we have taken it a couple of meaningful steps forward.
Our magnet is custom made, shaped specifically to fit between the rounds on a 8-shot 9mm moon clip, providing increased surface contact area with the steel of moon-clip, for increased grip. The vertical stem is also shaped, countered to match the bullets held in the moon-clip. This serves to index them, forcing them into the same position all the time – improving your consistency as you grab them to reload.
The vertical stem can be tilted to the sides, allowing you to position the moon clip at the angle best suiting your needs. The solid material structure ensures these holders are extremely durable and very unlikely to break, even if you are forced to go prone.
The DAA belt clip hanger, as used on our Racer pouches, provides two height positions, and a secure solid attachment to your 1.5” belt. The very slim steel plates on the back of the belt hanger are of extra value for the revolver shooter, as so many moon clip holders are use side by side. This slim designed ensures your inner and outer belt stay well stuck together.
*The moon clip holders are shipped with a 4mm thick magnet. The retention strength this magnet creates will depend on the type of moon clip you are using, and how magnetic it’s steel is. We have found it strong enough for all moon clips we have tried.
Single Stainless 9mm Moon Clip
The Double Alpha 8-round 9mm Moon Clips are designed for the new and popular Smith & Wesson 929 9mm revolver.
These match-grade moon clips are comparable in quality and performance to the very best available, but at a more affordable price, achieved through volume and hi-tech production.
Our Moon Clips are laser cut from hardened 413 Stainless Steel achieving an unparalleled hardness of 44RC, making them extremely durable and resistant to bending and deforming.
We now offer these popular moon clips in two thickness options: 0.037" (0.92mm) or 0.040" (1.00mm).
Depending on the type of brass you are using, and the headspace you have in your revolver, one type or the other will offer you the best performance. It's important, of course, to achieve just the right amount of retention of your ammo in your moonclips to enable the best, most consistent reloads. Choose the type to best suite your ammo specifications.
The stainless steel used is magnetic, and the smaller-than-most cutout for the extractor ensures more overlap and optimum performance when used on magnetic moon clip holders, such as our DAA 8-shot moon-clip holders.
Brass dimensions vary greatly between brands and in some cases even within certain brands.
We have found that our moon clips work with most brands. However, for most brass, loading and unloading tools are required.
