Description

Seller's Description:
LSB#: 120523KM16

Make: Smith and Wesson

Model: Model 25-5

Serial Number: N661361

Year of Manufacture: 1979 - 1980

Caliber: .45 Colt

Action Type: Single Action and Double Action Swing Out Cylinder Revolver

Markings: The left side of the barrel is marked “SMITH & WESSON”. The yoke cut is marked “N661361 / MOD. 25-5”. The yoke is marked “2729X / A4”. The left side of the grip frame is marked “A4”, “2729X”, and also has a “5”, “2”, “5” and an “A1” that may really be “A18”. The underside of the grip frame is marked “N661361”. The right side of the grip frame is marked with a “U” inside a circle, an “N” inside a triangle and “4569”. There is a large S&W logo on the right sideplate and the four line “Marcas Registradas” address on the right side of the frame. The right side of the barrel is marked “45 COLT CTG.”.

Barrel Length: 6”

Sights / Optics: The revolver is mounted with a fixed serrated red ramp front sight. There is a white outline square notch S&W micrometer click adjustable rear sight.

Stock Configuration & Condition: The twp piece grips are checkered walnut target grips with silver colored S&W medallions. There are no chips or cracks in either grip panel and only one notable compression mark on the solid border around the checkering of the left grip. The grips rate in about Excellent overall condition.

Type of Finish: Blue

Finish Originality: All Original

Bore Condition: The bore has mild erosion and the rifling is shallow. The muzzle crown is good.

Overall Condition: This revolver retains about 80% of its metal finish. The bluing is worn on both sides at the muzzle, the ejector rod, and towards the rear of the cylinder. There are light drag marks in the finish of the cylinder which also has some pinprick surface erosion as does a small spot on the sideplate. The screw heads are sharp and clean. The markings are clear except as noted. Overall, this revolver rates in about Very Good condition.

Mechanics: The action functions correctly, both single action and double action. We have not fired this revolver. This is a pinned barrel, square butt “N” frame with case colored ½” checkered hammer and ½” serrated trigger.

Box, Paperwork & Accessories: None

Our Assessment: This is a used S&W Model 25, the numbered version of the 1955 Model .45 Target Heavy Barrel revolver. It comes with 1/2” target hammer and trigger and target stocks. It shows use and could benefit from a thorough cleaning, but may well still be an accurate revolver. If you are a cowboy shooter, this may be the double action .45 Colt revolver you need to complement those Single Action Armies you already own.

CA Legal or CA Private Party Transferable: This revolver is not on the California “roster of handguns certified for sale”, and can only be transferred to a California resident as a private party transaction (PPT) at our shop in Simi Valley. This does not apply to out of state buyers.

  Questions from GunAuction.com Users...
(Public)   
    Q:  whats the percentage of bore eroded % whats the percentage of rifling eroded % trying to see if it will still serve as a cheap competetion revolver for my son..kids as big as the come so needed a big grip. 08/20/2012
        A:  Thank you for your question. We spent additional elbow grease and substantially cleaned this bore. There is some remaining fouling in the grooves but there does not appear to be any erosion,. The rifling still remains somewhat shallow. There is plenty of rifling for lead bullets and this revolver should prove to be plenty accurate for competition. We would say less than 10% erosion. Thanks. Lew. 08/21/2012
