JM 625 45 acp revolver

Post by Russ OR on Fri Jun 27, 2014 2:08 pm

My last match was a wadgun disaster.-
Frustrated, I broke out the 4" JM 625 45acp revolver. -Weigand scopemount w/ 1" Ultradot  - Old Weaver Low tip-off rings-there's daylight under the sight, but a business card won't go Very Happy .--  Two outings - 100+rounds lead wad ammo each time -loaded ahead of time in full moon clips. It's fun.- Too bad we have to shoot rapid fire.
However: 
With a thin rubber tap in the frame where the hammer hits one can practice revolver T&R dryfiring. - ---

I've done that with my JM 625 too. They're fun guns.

I would think with enough practice in rapid fire, this gun might be a ringer. Especially with some action work. This gun is next on my want list.

Russ, here in WA, Bill Freyfogle and Dave Schmolke are our wheelgunners. With practice you're not even conscious of your thumb working. I have small hands and my grip changes every time I thumb-cock. Reacquiring a good sight alignment/picture is time consuming.

I ran the 2700 yesterday and watched Bill Freyfogle shoot is revolvers..........amazing to see, his barrel always points at the target as he thumbs the hammer. His scores are even with semi's.

I had a newer 625 and just sold it to someone who wanted it for plinking.  It was not good enough for bullseye.  The crown of the barrel was horrible and would not group at 50 yards.  On the short line (TF/RF) with a trigger kit and Matchdot, I could shoot Master scores with it.
Going to save up and buy a Performance Center model.  Hoping it will be better.

I have a much older 25-2 (model of 1955) The pistol shoots better then I do. I also load my moon clips before I leave the house and just shoot the 45 match and enjoy the experience.No stove pipes,no fail to feed,no hurry to load magazines. I waited almost two years after I got it to drill and tap the pistol.I figure I pretty much wasted those two years.They really are fun to shoot.
