I am looking to buy a revolver that comes in .45 ACP. I know that S&W has their model 625. Are there any other revolvers that are chambered in .45 ACP?

I have a S&W 625 .45 acp wheel gun and I must say it shoots very well. I was tring something differant when I was shooting IPSC and found Im more of a semi-auto kind of person. I found it really well balanced and smooth even in DA.

LOL, I knew I saw this somewhere before!

This probably isn't the answer you were looking for, but the S&W and Colt M1917 .45 ACP revolvers can still be found for $350-500, and exhibit a level of workmanship that has long since lapsed.

Plus there are still quite a few M-25's floating around.

Dan Wesson, or the current reincarnation thereof, was marketing the model #460 which chambered several loads including the .45 acp. It looked like a solid, well built piece.

I forgot about the M1917, thanks for reminding me. That's another one to add to my list, thanks!

One more .45 ACP revolver no one has mentioned: Webley .455 that has had the back of the cylinder and extractor star faced off to take the .45 ACP and half (or full) moon clips. This (unfortunately) happened to a lot of Webley's after WW2, ruining them as collector guns. On the plus side, they worked just fine! You could probably still find them at gun shows.
