I have long wanted a S&W Model 25-2, .45 ACP revolver. I had seen one many years ago that was carried by a police officer I worked with and I fell in love with it. But he wouldn’t sell his, and I never could find a really clean one at a price I wanted to pay.
I am thinking of buying a S&W Model 25 classic in 45 LC and I have read articals and reviews in magazins but I some times do not trust those, so if any one who owns one could give me advice if they are good pistols, I would be greatfull. Also can they handle hot reloads in 45 LC like the Ruger Black Hawk? Thanks
There was a time when most quality revolvers were made of polished blued steel and walnut. These old guns today are timeless masterpieces that stir the soul. Many modern guns are matte coal black and lifeless plastic. They work and work well for their intended purpose, and I own several myself. However, to me they are simply tools, built to get the job done with no frills or fanfare. Just tools. But the old classic Smith & Wessons, Colts, Remingtons, and Rugers that were built by craftsmen who could spend a few hours at a polishing wheel before hand fitting the parts are the handguns that stir my soul. In recent years, most manufacturers have drifted away from blued steel and walnut, especially for double action revolvers.
