I once owned a S&W 625-10 (Performance Center .45ACP), but got rid of it because it was made out of Scandium and was too light, as a result it was a punishing piece to shoot. However, I now would like to have a custom piece made that would take advantage of the attributes I liked and add a few more.

The base model would be a S&W 625 .45ACP with a round butt.
Cylinder Length: 1.5"
Barrel Length: 2" in front of frame, with remainder inside frame window (approx. OAL of 3")
Grip Frame: shortened to 2-finger grip
Sights: Front: Big Dot Express, Rear: U-shaped fixed
Action: DAO with bobbed hammer
Trigger: Smooth Combat @ 8-9lbs.
Weight: Approx. 30 oz.
Grip Panels: Black Buffalo Horn

Any ideas on who could make this piece? Possibly Bowen?? Possible cost?

I'm not that familiar with the 625- is 1.5" less than the factory cylinder OAL? If so, you would be looking at using/making a new frame, and yoke; pretty much getting into the cost-prohibitive at that point. I don't know that it would be possible/adviseable.

To do everything else should not be "too bad". My first thought would be Cylinder & Slide......

Cut & crown the barrel- $150
DT front sight-$50
Sights- (I would go straight XS system)$120 for tritium
Frame cut & weld (purely guessing), using modified-shortened- hammer spring-$250
(All ball-park $$)

I would ask for three extra hammer-springs because there may a bit more than just cutting down the full-sized.

How bout talking to Mag-Na-Port about something like this?
They always love coming up with special made weapons...........You could take a standard 625.. or a scandium frame similar type peice............and have it re-worked/shortened.......to suit your tastes
