Default The Model 625 Appreciation thread!

After acquiring my third model 625 last month, I'm realizing how truly addictive these things are! They're worse than potato chips! They are really accurate too! My latest is a 625 Mountain gun in .45 ACP. It can easily shoot 30 rounds into a single ragged hole about 2" wide at 25 yards! Anyway, here's the family (in chronological order). Feel free to add yours!

Model 625-2 Model of 1988 - 45 ACP 5"



Model 625-6 45 ACP Mountain Gun 4" (2000)


Model 625 JM (625-8) 4"

Here's mine. I replaced the gold bead front sight with a fiber optic. I use RIMZ polycarbonate moonclips. With these, it's an absolute blast to shoot.

This one's almost a 625! I fitted a barrel and cylinder from a 625-10 to a pre-war N frame and replaced all the guts. I parkerized the frame to make it resemble the two-tone performance shop version.

I also have a 625-8 (JM). It is great, but on the whole, I like the look of that mountain gun better. Very classic lines.

My 625-8. Drilled the front for a bit of brazing rod and put a .160 blade on the rear. I can't stand that shallow notch that comes stock...

You've seen these before.

If you like 625s you're preaching to the choir here.

HERE is a link to my very own 625 appreciation thread.

Well, I certainly cannot match Allen Frames collection, but my enthusiasm for 625's knows no bounds! I'll match mine (enthusiasm) with Allen's any time LOL.

Here is my 625-6 with five inch barrel and Simmons Red Dot sight:



Here is my 625-8 Jerry Miculek Special with Simmons Red Dot Sight:



These two are my most favored revolvers of all time.

My first S&W - a 625-7 MG - and it's backup, a 625-6, both in .45 Colt, along with my 625-8 JM in .45 ACP:

I have a 625-8 that went through the performance shop at S&W. It is a real tack driver. How many different 625s did Smith make?

I just traded my mint 5906 and $$$ to get this 625-8 which the previous owner had run through the S&W performance shop. Superb trigger. Dumped the ugly rubber Hogue for a set of Ahrends Coco bolo combat grips that I'd refinished. Can't wait to get to the range!

I love those mountain guns. I never liked full lug barrels. I tried a 625-8 but sold it. I now have a 22-4 which I think of as a blued mountain gun with fixed sights.

I'm enjoying this thread. I recently stumbled onto an excellent condition, 3", 625-3, while in an area shop for the first time. Gave them some money and hope to get it in a few days.

I love my 1911 and the .45ACP round. Seems like a natural addition to my modest S&W revolver collection. Can't wait to get it home.

That is pretty much my rational. I am all 1911. I run 45acp like water. I like the revolver / DA experience without having to support a different caliber. I have a 625JM, a 325 Thunder Ranch, and just picked up a Lew Horton 25-14 NIB with 3" barrel.

Pics soon.

Regards,
Greyson

I have three in the -4 configuration, all .45 ACP. They are 3" full lug (my favorite and the one that shoots EVERYTHING well), 4" Springfield Armory Commemorative Mountain Gun and custom 2" hybrid.

Here's a couple of mine - First, a custom Model of 1988. 5" barrel, red ramp front, Ahrends stocks, and a primo action job by Nelson Ford. This is without a doubt the smoothest-working double action I own. I normally am not good at DA work, but with this one, I'm pretty darn decent. The 625-6 Mountain Gun in .45 Colt is similarly customized; it's as fine a field gun as I can imagine.

625JM, 325 Thunder Ranch, Lew Horton 25-14. I think these are very cool.

Lew Horton. Just picked it up. NIB. 25-14. Not a huge fan of the nickel, but you take what you can get.

And look at this. They only made 250 of these. Well....I got number 200 by accident! Pretty good for a CCW piece to know your serial numbers.

Default My Model of 1988 625-2

I had wanted one of these for over 20 years, and finally got one last week. I posted pictures of it before, but since this an appreciation thread, here it is again. I plan to put a factory red ramp front sight on it along with a white outline rear sight.

Here is my only one, a 625-8 Performance Center. This is the one that comes with the red, white and blue grips, which I replaced with these American Pride grips.
