Picked up a nice S&W 625JM 45acp revolver.
I snoozed twice the past few months ago on them 1917's model and regretted it.What a handsome wheelgun. Just got my .45 acp Colt M1917 back from the smith, with a new nose on the hammer, and will shoot it tomorrow.
Let us know how it goes on the range and which moon clips work best for you.
Have the same gun with the TK Customs Mooner/Demooner. Have to admit those clown grips make me laugh every time I see them. I think I took them off on the way home! It’s had the Smith rubbers on since. It really is a treat to shoot tho. Have a Bisley convertible in 45, but the 625 is just a tad better in my opinion. Still do enjoy range day with the pair.
Hey rman what width weigand sight blade you get? Looked at them online and looks like i need to get one.I have one of those too. It's an excellent shooter. Mine had some custom work by a good friend who was a gunsmith. Unfortunately he passed last year. He smoothed up the action, bobbed the hammer a bit, installed a Weigand Machine & Design rear sight blade, made a custom ramp front sight that is a little narrower than usual that shows more light on each side, slightly beveled the rear of the chambers to facilitate quicker reloads, smoothed the face of the trigger and custom fit Hogue grips to fit my hand.

Mine is a .125" blade, but my ramp front is about .100". With my old eyes, I need to see plenty of light on each side of the front sight. It makes it quicker to pick up also.Hey rman what width weigand sight blade you get? Looked at them online and looks like i need to get one.
