In the other thread you posted in, Kevin posted a pic of a 1950 and a 1955 together. Maybe he will post that pic here.
The 1950 guns that have lightweight barrels have beveled corners on the top front edge of the frame. Heavy barrel guns do not have those bevels. Your frame is not beveled, so it was never a 1950 Model. It is a Model 25.
I agree that is a model 25 after looking at a few 6s on S&Ws, the top of the 6 is rounded - not flattened off like the top of a 5.
