Trying to wrap my mind around the various 45 ACP revolvers in S&W history. I can think of these.

1917 Military
1917 Commercial
1917 Brazilian edition, Commercial
1917 Post War Commercial
1917 Brazilian Edition, surplus
1950
1955
625
1917 Heritage


So, what have I forgotten?

Thanks for helping.

Hey Kevin, Sorry that took so long but I never saw the question. :oops:

This one is a Thunder Ranch and is related to 325 PD Airlites but different in a few ways.
Barrel is 4" and is two piece , stainless barrel and a steel shroud and cylinder. Frame is scandium so this dude is light for a 45acp gun ,,,, but not titanium light.
Gun is nice to carry but not easy to find leather for.

Shooting so far has been disappointing with cast bullets,,,,,,,, which I consider to be a mandatory option on a ACP gun.
Jacketed bullets shoot quite well though.

If jacketed stuff is working sounds like the problem is the temper of the alloy. EK stated he used a harder alloy for 45ACP in revolvers and specifically in the 45 AR. Along with the harder alloy, a longer bearing surface will help. Perhaps a SWC? I use a full wadcutter, 235 grain.

Thanks for getting back back to me.

Mod 1950 "Model Marked" Model 22, Second in row. Pre Model 26 (also Mod 1950), Third in row. ( Pre 26's also came in 45 LC, First in row) One in the back is a pre Mod 24 (44 Spl.)

Yes, I really like Mod 1950's :-D
