    Have owned S&W Model 1917, Model 25-2 and Model 625. All are great guns and can handle most 45 ACP loads.
    Be careful of squibb loads with those reloads - had one jam in the forcing cone cone of my 1917. Was a PAIN to get out.
    Don't know how you feel about SA revolvers, but you might want to consider the Ruger Blackhawk in .45 as well.

    I've got a 625-4 with a fiber optic front sight and action job with Hogue grips coming and can't wait to try it out. :D

    I have owned a 4" Performance Edition and I currently own a 4" standard version.

    Both have been just fine.

    Use a tool to dismount the spent cartridges from steel moonclips, either one you make yourself out of 1/2" copper tubing, or one you purchase (about $6-$9).

    A bent moonclip can cause the cylinder to drag or even bind, if it's bent far enough.
