Does anyone have one of these? They appear to be a pretty novel concept to me. A full 2" barrel that only sticks out about an inch in front of the frame and a cylinder shortened to be only as long as neccessary. I want to get one, but would like to hear opinions first.

Thanks all.

Don't have one, but in my opinion it's ugly enough to make a train take a dirt road.

Ya Bart, but I like ugly. Hell, you should see my car. She won't win any beauty contests, but she is hell on wheels.

I have one and have to admit that I was a little surprized by the pug nose looks when I first got it but it does grow on you. I now think it's quite a looker esp. with the eagle grips.

It's a great carry gun if you want to carry a revolver. The grips are very comfortable for my hands but I am used to shooting with my pinky under the grip. You can swap grips if this bothers you. Shooting with regular carry loads (165-185 gr Hy-Shoks, 165-ish Speer) are no problem. I tried 185 gr +Ps and they were a bit unconfortable. I'm currently carrying in a Kytac OWB holster. Great fit and works great now with the cooler weather and more clothes. Thinking of trying a Hoffner's Mirage (IWB) to carry closer to body.

Moon clip reloads and unloads are the best! Easy in and out. No problem with the short extractor rod. I also like the sights a lot. They are easy and fast to pick up. I may send the front sight to Trijicon to have a trinium insert installed.

If you like novel yet functional revolvers, I don't think you can go wrong; assuming you can get past the cost. The 325s are an option also. I like the stainless cylinder and barrel on the 625 for cleaning. The extra weight is not a factor @ 24 or so ounces.

Good luck!
