faster to reload!

I think that barrel is too short. But hey a .45 acp ball round is a 45 acp ball round sure alot better than a .38.

kinda heavy though..

Did someone forget to put a barrel on that??


What about the issue of short barrels and .45ACP not getting enough velocity??
Link Posted: 9/9/2004 6:36:07 AM EST
I'd pass on it, unless you don't have a snubbie in the collection.

The fact that it's .45 ACP is good though...

I'd pass and buy a (another) mini-Glock.

Guess the main question is, why do you want it, ie. what will it's role be?

If you are looking for a carry piece, I'd pass. But from the collection stand point, if dats what chu like man...

S&W makes a snubbie 8rnd .357 Mag that I have been eyeing.
Link Posted: 9/9/2004 7:52:51 AM EST
It's nice, but I wouldn't have a need for it - other than stuffing it in the back of the shelf in the safe.

Barrel should be a little longer too.

I have a ti/Al S&W 296, 5 shot 44spl L-frame, with factory ammo it was a real handful. Not very fun to shoot, so I got a SS S&W 696, now that is fun.

Why? My Dan Wesson Model 7460 requires moon clips too.

What's with the discoloring of the cylinder?

Just picked up this one:



325PD. It has a 2.75" barrel instead of the 2", weghs four ounces less, and cost about $300 less than the PC gun. Not unplesant to shoot.

C'mon down to PA and you can try it out

I can't really carry it as an off duty/backup however.

Damn it's cool though.



There, you answered the question on whether or not to buy in your own post!

I count 2 for and 1 Against...

The "Aye's" have it! Now go buy it and post pics

I've had a few customers ask about it, but at $1100, they just laugh.



For a novelty, yes. But I am of the opinion that revolvers are the best carry gun from a reliability standpoint and already carry an $800 342PD in .357Mag. Eight rounds of .357 with a five round .357 backup is sweet to me! Planerench out.

AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!­!!!! Dammit!! I hadn't seen one of those yet, now I have to add it to my "must have" list. I want one of those Taurus 445 .44 Special snubbies as well.

Very cool, Wave. BTW, did you get to beat any hippies?

When you've jammed it into someone's gut as you pull the trigger, velocity doesn't matter as much.

First, S&W are hella accurate with any barrel length.
Second, that is the ugliest S&W they make.

I thought my .357 Rossi had a short barrel
Link Posted: 9/9/2004 11:25:25 PM EST
Link Posted: 9/9/2004 11:40:05 PM EST
While Troy is correct about more velocity loss in the very short barrels, modern JHP's have a much broader performance envelop than older designs, and the .45 acp will not lose as much as something like a .357 mag. Personally, I think you will find the ultra-short barrel of the PC gun makes the "package" much less balanced than the 325PD shown and that you would prefer the PD model if you compared them side by side.

Of course, WTF does that have to do with just liking and wanting a particular gun???

If it were only chambered a little bit deeper... .45WinMag



45 WinMag out of a 3" barrel is an interesting experience. It does make a nice long flame, but was no worse than a 3" 44 Mag.

This is a custom 3" 625 built by the S&W Performance Center. Among other things the cylinder face has been milled to accept 45 ACP full moon clips. It will chamber and safely shoot 45 LC (original caliber), 45 ACP, 45 WinMag, and 460 Rowland.



For real "flashbang" he should just get a 4" 500 Magnum. There's a discussion over on the S&W Forum site about what holster for concealed carry
Link Posted: 9/11/2004 12:48:29 AM EST
I have to agree that I'd stick with the a 3" barrel and even with that you still get a healthy velocity loss. My 629LH is "laser" accurate but still has PLENTY of thump for anything you want. I think they make great pocket battleships. Now a .45acp in 3" is best taken in smaller packs than a 625 since it really loses ALOT of the thump. My CS45, I really like the little brick paver, can draw straight lines too but I would go no lower than this for ACP. Well maybe once, I do have a Model 1 belly buster in ACP that spits lead bubble gum. Now that thing will pound 2 birds with one stone out of a package no bigger than a Snickers bar, but hey, who am I to kick a kid out of the candy shop. If you really have to then go ahead.

As much fun as snubbies are, Id still rather carry a 4" barrel revolver, kinda like this one...

Yeah great, Thanks alot I just called Stan, my new .357 is gonna be here by Friday. Gotta love T&T Tactical.
Link Posted: 9/15/2004 9:59:37 AM EST
It is not hard to put rounds on a 50 yard B-27 target with a snubbie, if you know what you are doing and have the skills. I know, because I've seen me do it. The .45 doesn't kick in that platform as much as you may think. Muzzle blast will be comparable to a .357, as-in, don't want to shoot it indoors w/o ear muffs.

You do have to ask yourself, 10 rounds in a Glock thirty that is lighter, cheaper, thinner, etc. why, oh, why would you want a brick sized revolver in your waist band?

And lastly, the super light guns are idiotic. Sure they are light, but if you are going to carry it, you want to shoot the thing a lot to become proficient with it. You won't want to shoot a super-lite revolver much.
Link Posted: 9/15/2004 10:03:14 AM EST
I thought that gun was cool right off when I saw it at SHOT two years ago. Then I couldn't figure out what it was good for or what I'd do with it, and I thought it was kind of lame.

YMMV

I say keep your hands to yourself or put them on a Glock. Let the flaming begin!

I had one.. never did shoot it. But I realized it was bigger than I expected when I ordered it. I sold mine. Was really cool though having a 2" super snub. The barrel was pushed back and the cylinder was turned down a bit.

I used to have one of those. One day I decided to run six cylinders worth of ammo through it as fast as I could.
Felt like my thumb was gonna come off by the last shot.

I traded it straight up for a 442 Airweight two weeks later.



'Course I haven't learned my lesson either. I am saving up for one of THESE:
