I believe that is a 625-2 which were only available a short period of time before an engineering change took us to 625-3s. The most visual difference is that the barrel nomenclature is stamped into the metal, on the "-3" it is lazer etched and vigorous cleaning can remove the etching.

Although it is only cosmetic I would much rather have a 625-2 for that reason.

Watch out, as others have said they are addicting. I chose my username because of the 625-3 it was my very first firearm in 1989-90. Still have that sucker - I have put at least 10,000 rounds through it. No issues ever.

Oh and your gun came with Pachmayr rubber grips - the correct type had 3 grooves for your fingers molded in. You can find them used at almost any gun show for $10. They will not look as good as the grips you have, but they may actually feel better when you shoot it.
