S&W M625JM Champion 6RD 45ACP 4"
by James E Date Added: Saturday 27 July, 2013
Received the gun from my FFL - went home and put the gun through some double action tests using snap caps. To my surprise I found the revolver would fail to engage the cocking mechanism for the hammer - it would rotate the cylinder but would fail to cock the hammer. This happened several times, especially when slowly squeezing the trigger in double action. I contacted S&W and they sent me a paid return label for FedEx. The gun is being returned as I write this. Finish of the metal on the JM 625 is impeccable compared to some other S&W Revolvers I've bought recently. The tech at S&W said it sounded like a sear slipping. I believe that S&W quality control should have caught this before shipping it out, especially with the price of the gun. I love S&W revolvers but I think the recent surge in sales may be resulting in companies not paying attention to detail. I love the feel, handling and look of the gun and the fact it will use 45 auto - just want to be sure my family can depend on it if that ever happens.
