.38 largo

Been doing some reading and have a question. I have a spanish revolver marked .38 largo. All of the searches on this turn up at the 9x23mm area. Is this the same as a 9mm round but only with a rimmed case? The cylinder is missing the extractor so I dont know if the cartirdge will be a rimmed or need a clip. So is this a spanish version of 9x23 or an english version of the .38 special? Also would it be safer to convert it to a .38 barrel and cylinder combo?

9mm Largo and 9X23 have similar external dimensions - see any of many reloading manuals or the Wolfe web site for cartridge dimensions.

These are rimless and for all I know your revolver uses a pencil to push fired cases out or maybe not.

The cartridges are not the same and I wouldn't say the Largo is a Spanish version of anything but the Largo and the 9X23 is a development by CP then Winchester. Neither has much in common with the .38 Special.

The 9mm Largo and the 9x23 Winchester, while similar in dimensions, are loaded to much different pressure levels. DO NOT use 9x23 Winchester in a 9mm Largo gun.

No information about a 38 Largo at hand. Sorry.

Shoot
