PC 940 Special

Affectionately nicknamed the Pocket Rocket, this little J-frame is one powerhouse.

While chambered for the 356TSW cartridge, since revolvers that fire autoloading cartridges headspace on the moon clip instead of the case mouth the PC 940 Special can chamber and fire 356TSW, 9x21, 9MM Parabellum, 380ACP and more.

This is not the same frame that is used on other J-frame firearms including the standard 940. The Performance Center made several strength modifications that eventually were incorporated into what became the J-Magnum frame almost 5 years later.

Those are rare. I've only seen one, in the early/mid 1990s, carried by a guy I met at some training. Nice!

177 or 181 made. Those are the production numbers I seen anyway.
