    Hello. Picked up a very clean S&W Model 625-6 at the Dallas Market Hall gun show yesterday. I have not gotten the opportunity to shoot it yet but will when I can. Action is smooth and single-action very light and clean-breaking. I don't care for the MIM parts, but these have been hard to find, at least in my neck of the woods. Stuck a set of Eagle Secret Service grips on it and find it quite comfortable.

    This thing will probably get a main diet of 250-gr. CSWC's loaded to 850-900 ft/sec. I will also see how Corbon's .45 AR DPX load shakes out through it as well.

    I've had good luck with a considerably older 5" Model 625 in ACP/AR and hope that this one does as well.

    We'll see...

    Best.

    Once again I am eagerly awaiting a great report of what looks like a nice firearm, I would love a 3 or 4 inch 25 or 625. Nice piece Mr. Camp along with some great photos.
