I traded into this S&W 625-2 today. Swapped out the grips for some custom Culinas i had on hand. Should be a fantastic shooter. Anybody else have a .45 ACP wheel gun?
Just a Bi-Centennial Ruger convertible. Not fond of aluminum grip frames but that sure makes it carry better.
I had a 1917 S&W that shot fantastic! and with my excellent judgement and super mental capacity and great wisdom that I possess,,,i traded it off,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,:bawling:
I have a 3" S&W 625 "Model of 1989." Very robust pistol and probably one of the better big bore combat handguns. I load with .45 Auto Rim so as not bother with half moon clips.
I also have a Ruger Vaquero convertible. 45 ACP/.45 Colt. All steel, including grip frame. I think it was a special run. It has two cylinders.
Nice gun, man. I have owned a half dozen or so 45 ACP revolvers but the only one I still have is a Redhawk that also shoots 45 colt.
I did have a Model of 1989. Good gun, but I liked my 44 cal 629 better and had a chance to make an excellent profit by selling the 45 ACP 1989, so off it went. Good gun.
Yours looks great! :) Enjoy.
Here's a photo of my old one. Kinda fuzzy photo, sorry 'bout that:
And my son has this beautiful older Blackhawk with the brass grip frame and both cylinders. He mostly keeps the 45 ACP cylinder in it, 'cause he knows he can drop by my reloading bench and grab a couple of boxes of 45 ACP anytime he wants. Kids. :)
Nice brass frame 3 screw, M700. I've owned one in .44. The combo .45s are tough to find.
