Default lets see those 45 wheel guns!

S&W M1917 made in 1918 and a S&W 625 JM special... I really like hogue

The 1917 is rough and reliable.
The jm is competition ready, with a super light trigger pull and adjustable sights. The 1917 is my everyday carry simce i got it a month ago. I stripped the bluing off in hopes of finishing it somehow.

OK, I'll play.

The two on the left are .45ACP.



The one farthest left is a 625 Model of 1989, and the one just to the right of it is a 22-4 Thunder Ranch. Both are excellent.

Oh, and here's my 625 PC.



She's also a honey. Apologies for the lame phone photo.

Don't ever say I didn't do anything nice for you. Haha!

P.S. How do you like the JM? I have heard/read conflicting reports. I just saw one for sale today, actually.

Its amazing. Seriously. Right on target everytime. I had a gunsmith install some better springs on it too. I want another 45 revolver. S&W has a black one Ive got my eye on.


Dude that is a nice set of revolver!! Thanks for posting. Thunder ranch is sooo cool.

Ronald,

I really couldn't chose between my two 625s. Both are amazing. Perhaps the Model of 1989 has a better trigger, as it seems to be almost telekinetic in single action. But the 625 PC is a rail gun as well.

I love my 22-4, but I think the 625s are more practical. The 22-4 is one of those "run 'til Doomsday" revolvers that has old school charm and modern day utility. It's not for sale. Ever. Well, neither are either of the 625s. Or the 629-1 (not pictured). Or the two Model 15s on the right there. Hmm... I guess the only one you might be able to talk me into selling is the 686+, but then I would remember what a laser it is, and kindly decline. OK, I guess I would sell my hard chromed 27-2 Highway Patrolman, but it's still on my list to swap the spring on it to see if I can get the trigger to be something less than the 34+ pound trigger it is today. It's good dry fire practice, I'll tell ya.

Wheelguns are good. Check my sig!

Man, I would not sell them either! I love my guns. Even if you replaced them it's still not the same! Each gun has its own feel.


A webley?!?! My god that is cool. Can I shoot it?!!?!

That berreta has character. Is it a brass frame?
