    Yup got another S&W Revolver tonight

    Well as you guys can see by all my latest post that I have been on a S&W revolver kick lately.
    To night I picked up another S&W Revolver.
    This one I won't be packing to often because of the size but the trigger is amazing.
    This is a Nickel S&W 25-2 in 45 Colt with a 4 inch barrel.
    I can't wait to take this out on Thursday for a range run.

    Great looking revolver, be sure to get some of this for your wrist after the range session.

    Oh no! Not another one! It's getting to be an epidemic. A four-inch would be quite "tote-able."

    Am guessing that barrel's been shortened due to the location of the Smith & Wesson roll mark. It would be perfectly centered for a 6-inch barrel. Smith & Wesson would have centered the roll mark on a 4-inch gun.

    No matter. It's a good "usin'" length in the rust resistant stainless steel no less. Stupendously fine cartridge too and frequently overlooked here on the Forum. I'd love to have one just like it.

    Nope, Not stainless …This one is Nickel. I figured the barrel had been shortened to 4 inches. I don't like my barrels any longer than 4 inches.I am not a hunter and like to carry all my gun now and then.

    You can never have enough wheel guns. I had a lot of S&W's and will probably get a few more but for now I only have one and the rest are Rugers due to the high cost of new Smiths. Enjoy. There is a 625 at my local gun store for the last 8 months and every time I go there I struggle not to trade in two of my semi autos for it. :)

    Hmmm...so it is. Nickel can be nearly as good as stainless steel for banishing corrosion. I agree about 4-inch barrels. All barrel lengths are available around here but the 4-inch is my personal favorite for revolvers. Don't currently have a 4-inch N-Frame on hand though have had in the past. Need to rectify that lack of good judgement.

    Fine looking Smith, you just cannot have too many nice revolvers. I too have a Model 25 in 45LC but it is blued.

    Nothing wrong with a nickel revolver I like them all.

    Nice, where do u find these. I'v always wanted one.
    The police are not there to protect you from crime, they are there to arrest the guy after the crime has been committed, assuming they find him. It is your responsibility to protect yourself and your family.
