Smith & Wesson M1917 Brazilian Revolver chambered in .45 ACP. This is a six-shot, large frame revolver ordered by Brazil in 1937. They ordered 25,000 M1917s for their military. They can be identified by the large Brazilian crest stamped on their side plates and are sometimes referred to as the M1937, the Modelo 1937, or the Brazilian-contract M1917. They use moon-clips to hold the cartridges in position, facilitate reloading, and to aid in extraction. A commercial rimmed cartridge, the .45 Auto Rim, was also developed, so M1917 revolvers could eject cartridge cases without using moon-clips.
