View Full Version : Info on S&W 25-2 ??
Some years ago I purchased a S&W 25-2 pistol. On the right side of the barrel is stamped "Model of 1950, S/N N3382XX. The barrel is pinned and the grips are S&W with with the medalilon . It's in the wooden case with the screw driver, cleaning rod, mop and brush. I don't think it's been fired as the cylinder is not marked. I can't find very much information on this pistol. I think it's .45 ACP. Any info would be helpful. TIA:rolleyes:
I believe some of those guns, Model 25s, were made in .45 Colt but the 25-2 should indeed be .45 A.C.P. Congratulations on the purchase of a great pistol that has become very pricey over the years. Pick up some half moon or full moon clips, go forth and enjoy your new purchase!!!

Looks like your pistol was produced in 1976. In addition to the 45 acp ammo, you can use the 45 auto rim cartridges too. I have a model 625 and though it looks big and bulky, it is a real pleasure to shoot. If and when you fire your pistol, you will likely find it's handling and performance to be better than expected.
I have the 1950 target in 44 special, and the best thing is you do not have to stick a key in the side to use it.:banana100:
Thanks for the information guy's. I'm not sure if I'll shoot, might keep it unfired, maybe not. I have 1917 colt and 1917 S&W that I shoot with moon clips.
If it is unfired or mint condition or even extremely nice shape, leave it alone, & put a good coat of BreakfreeCLP on it.
You have 2 very good user revolvers, leave the S&@ 25-2 alone & unfired, it's worth somewhere north of $1000 if unfired/cylinder unturned.
Thanks guys. I think I'll keep it unfired.
