LATER: It’s sold.
I’m selling my Smith & Wesson 625 Jerry Miculek special. It’s an N frame S&W in .45 ACP with a 4″ barrel, Jerry Miculek wood grips, frosted stainless steel finish, adjustable rear sight, and gold bead front sight that’s removeable without tools. (The front sight is way cool, and I wish more Smiths had it.)
It’s had a professional trigger job at Coal Creek Armory with reduced weight Wolf springs and a high mass firing pin, and with chamfered charge holes.
Gun is in 99% condition. Has had about 700 rounds fired through it. Comes with original box, papers, and S&W steel moonclips.
- Screwdriver-type demooning tool from Moonclips.com
- 10 steel moonclips from Moonclips.com
- 10 Rimz plastic clips (which is what I used almost exclusively since they didn’t require a demooning tool)
- 50 rounds or so of fired Georgia Arms .45 Autorim brass.
- 100 rounds or so of .45 ACP brass if you want it
$635, which is less than the new price, and this is with a trigger job and the accessories. I’ll be walking this around the gun show in Knoxville Saturday morning. If it doesn’t sell there I’ll put it up for sale on The High Road and Smith & Wesson Forum next week, or will ship to a reader’s FFL. Email me if interested. I’ll also have the FS: Lee-Enfield Pseudo No. 5 Jungle Carbine for sale at the show.
Bonus! – And if you’re wondering who Jerry Miculek is, he’s the world’s fastest pistol shooter. In the video below he’s shooting an S&W 625 when he fires six shots, reloads, and fires six more shots all in 2.99 seconds. Miculek is so crazy fast it looks like he’s pushing the bullets out of the gun. He has to use a revolver because the cycling time of a semi-auto slows him down.
P.S. – Those wood grips were designed by Jerry Miculek, and are what he uses on his guns. I have to say I was really warming up to them. They don’t have checkering of fingergrooves, but they work really well because of the shape and low-gloss finish. The other revolver I was shooting Wednesday night had classic S&W fingergroove wood grips with a high gloss finish. The Miculek grips were more comfortable and controllable shooting .45 ACP than the S&W grips shooting .38 Special +P. I think Jerry’s on to something with that design. Now if only Hogue or Pachmyr would offer a low cost version in rubber.
