    New (to me) S&W revolver.

    Have wanted a S&W Model 25 revolver for a long time in either 45ACP or 45LC got lucky this one is 45LC. Found this one at the Raleigh gun show last weekend at a price I was willing to pay. There is some minor holster wear at the muzzle and on the cylinder but that will have no effect on the way it shoots. Now if Ma Nature will cooperate I will take it to the range for a test drive.

    Seller was asking $650, I offered $600 cash and after thinking about it for a few seconds he said ok. Around here most Model 25s I have seen lately have been priced at $900+ so I just had to pounce on this one.

    Dang, that's nice. What's the model dash number, and is that a 4" or 5" tube?

    An N-frame S&W in .44 or .45 is near the top of my wish list. You found a nice one!

    It's a 25-6 with a 4" barrel.

    A big bore Smith & Wesson in a useful barrel length. A person could grow old and be happy with only that revolver. Congratulations!

    I love the wheelie guns,,,,, just wish they could be 9 shooters
    instead of 5s or 6s,,,,, of course I do carry a speed loader.

    I would love to have one just like yours.
