    Smith and Wesson 25-14 45acp limited edition

    Here's my new 25-14 Nickel 45acp Lou Horton X-mas present to myself.

    I've found a set of "beater" magna grips coming for it so I can take these off and save them, they are too nice to use on something thats going to see a lot of range time just banging/goofing around.

    One of 250 in Nickel, and another 250 were made in Blue.

    Thumbs up

    45acp?
    How many rounds does the magazine hold and where do you insert it?

    Nice looking revolver. A .45 ACP revolver is one of those items that is one my 2008 want list.

    Very nice.

    I find the 45 ACP to be sweet in a revolver. If you reload, the loads you can work up can be amazing.

    Merry Christmas and happy shooting.

    Thing of beauty

    That is a beautiful gun. A friend has a similar S&W .45 ACP revolver with 4 inch barrel, and he let me shoot it at the range. It was a pleasure to shoot.

    Thanks for the thoughts everyone.

    I haven't shot it yet, waiting on the grips, but it should be pretty light in the recoil for standard 45 loads.

    Biker,

    Shoot me a pm if you've got a particular load thats nice in the revos. I've not loaded up anything other than semi-auto loads in the past.

    Wow! That's gorgeous. I love a .45 wheel gun.

    Thanks Rod

    This one made a few firsts for me.

    First Nickel handgun
    First 45acp wheelgun
    First Smith revo with a lock

    I liked the looks of it, I collect K and N frame Smiths, and it was a limited run of 250 besides being the "3" firsts above so I said what to hell, lets get it.

    Lock aside, it has a very nice classic look about it. I really like the tapered barrel and the "properly" styled thumbpiece. I'm reverting back to when I was 14 and finding that nickel is appealing to me. Tremendously fine cartridge! Bet it shoots a treat. That revolver ought to become so popular that S&W couldn't keep up with cranking 'em out. Alas, too much water under the bridge and plastic bottom feeders reign supreme with most these days.

    A quality cast 250-250 grain Keith style lead SWC in the Auto Rim case works well over a moderate charge of Unique in my WWI Colt and S&W Model 1917 revolvers, giving outstanding accuracy and .45 Colt equivalent performance. Best load I could recommend outside excellent factory equivalent .45 ACP loads. The cast 185-200 grain wadcutters might be great in your revolver and your adjustable sights could easily accomodate them. They shoot low in my old fixed sight guns but group well.

    Sweeet revolver. I wouldn't let the lock bother me for one minute but if you do please let me know and I'll be willing to take it off your hands before you get yourself hurt.

    Sweet! I really like nickel!

    I shoot a three-inch 1989 625 and a 6.5 inch 25-2. The .45acp in the N-frame is great. Not much recoil or noise, and a whopper of a stopper.

    Be sure NOT to use solvent when you clean it. Especially Hoppes #9. It will ruin the nickle. I am still looking for a good nickle cleaner after thirty years. I used WD40 once, didnt seem to hurt.

    Wow, thanks for the information here. I didn't know that and I may have done just that.

    I'll have to research Nickel tomorrow.

    Thanks again, as I mentioned earlier, this nickel gun is a first for me.
