FIREARM HISTORY AND FEATURES:
The Smith & Wesson Model 625, is a 6-round, double-action/single-action revolver chambered in .45 ACP using moon clips, first introduced in 1988.
The Model 625 is an improved, stainless steel version Smith & Wesson Model 22 and a direct descendant of the Smith & Wesson M1917 revolver first issued during WWI.
Based on S&W’s stainless steel N-frame (large), the Model 625 was introduced as the .45 CAL MODEL OF 1988, as a limited edition model intended as an International Practical Shooting Confederation (IPSC) commemorative.
It was equipped with a 5″ barrel with a full-length underlug.
The regular production model of the Model 625 was introduced in 1989, it was also made with 3″ and 4″ barrels, while standard offerings now only include 4″ and 5″ barrels.
The Model 625 was designed to fire .45 ACP pistol cartridges with use with moon clips.
It will head-space the .45 ACP cartridge in the chambers without using moon clips, but since the extractor cannot engage the rimless cartridge, the empty shells must be ejected with a cleaning rod.
It may also use .45 Auto Rim as they were designed for revolvers chambered in .45 ACP using moon clips, as well as the newer .45 GAP cartridge, but only with the use of moon clips.
The S&W Model 625 JM is a Performance Center variant that was introduced in 2005.
The “JM” stands for Jerry Miculek, a renowned revolver speed shooter, and is his personal design.
The Model 625 JM uses a 4″ barrel with rear adjustable sights and a front gold bead black partridge sight, and is finished in matte bead-blasted stainless steel.
The grips are Miculek’s own design.
This gun is in excellent, used condition. It is mechanically sound and functional.
The overall bead-blasted, stainless steel finish is excellent, with no discernible marks or scratches anywhere.
The original, JM wooden grips are still in excellent condition.
It comes in its original case including original manual and all other normal, included accessories, including 5 moonclips.
Also includes a BMT Mooner mooning/de-mooning tool.
This firearm is suitable for home self defense, but is perhaps a little large (heavy) for every day carry, unless for a large-framed person.

- IDPA – Revolver division
