    Replacement barrel for 25-2

    I picked up a used 25-2 with the barrel cut to 4 inches with a screw on ramp sight for IDPA use. I want to restore it to stock. I see a barrel in the Gun Parts catalog listed as 6 inch. I really want an original pinned barrel at 6 1/2 inches. Is this a misprint or did they make 2 lengths for the auto rim? If S&W did make 2 lengths, where is the best place to get a 6 1/2 incher?

    It probably isn't a misprint. The earlier barrels were 6 1/2", but sometime in the late '70s they changed to 6". What they are advertising is probably one of the later barrels.

    Clem's got it right..... the 6" Barrel became standard about the same time the 25-5 .45 Colt's became available. The pinned barrel went away some 5 years later. Therefore, any 6 1/2" tube you find should be a pinned, non-crush fit barrel.

    I would call Jack First in Rapid City, SD. He can be crotchety over the phone, but his daughter is pretty good. Jack's a little long in the tooth, a USMC WW2 Vet and quite a character. He got alot of stuff there that cannot be found anyplace else on the planet.

    Hi,

    I'd advertise your old barrel here in the classifieds for trade, as some folks are always looking to chop their 25-2 barrel down to 3 or 3 1/4" . . . Jovino-style, and this would keep 'em from chopping a stock barrel, while also allowing you to restore your 25-2 to original condition. A win-win all the way around.

    Here's my 3 1/4" tubed M25-2 . . . my favorite handgun of all time. Not stock . . . but my favorite revolver of all time.

    Or to save the labor costs, see if someone might be interested in trading revolvers. That would save labor cost and maybe make someone else happy also.
