.45 ACP revolver
I know its not a very common round for revolvers--the most well known appears to be the S&W 625,
Who else manufactures revolvers in .45ACP and does anyone have any experience/thoughts on those?
I like the .45 ACP round in general but am looking into picking up 1st revolver thus my curiosity
Edit: also, is Smith and Wesson currently offering the 625 in any model other than the Jerry Miculek special...personal taste, just not a fan :P
S&W currently makes a couple of .45 ACP revos: the 625JM and 625PC. Very similar but the 625PC has a slightly shorter cylinder for slightly less bullet jump to the barrel, and a different, lighter, profile barrel. I have both and both are very accurate and fun to shoot.
S&W also made a blued older revo that was originally intended as a bullseye gun, the 25-2. I believe they went out of production in the early '80s. You could consider yourself lucky if you found one.
This is the one I like, the 625PC.
Product: Model 625
Product: Model 22, Model of 1917 - S&W Classics - Blue
I didn't see this one listed.
I would like to eventually get one...
Yes. those grips are very ...uhh...happy!

Having to do some smithing on it however,due to the .45 ACP cylinder

This is a common problem when obtaining one of these revolvers.
It accepts factory round nose just fine and if that's what you're after,
I would suggest this gun.If you cast,as I do,plan on doing a little
work on the .45 ACP cylinder.
I also am fond of the dual cylinder Ruger Blackhawk series. Both cartridges shoot very well. And the single actions don't require moon clips, the two rounds both chamber the same.
