Just another "N" frame.

I found this one on the rack at my LGS, cowering and crying on a rack full of Glocks and Sigs, and other plastic semi-autos. I tried to ignore it, but it wouldn't stop whinning and crying, so I finally gave in and bought it home.

Smith & Wesson 25-13 "Mountain Gun" with a 4" barrel, in 45 Colt. Yea, I know. It's got MIM parts, a frame mounted firing pin, a round butt frame, no pin in the barrel, and a plastic box.

Oh...and it's got "the lock."

On the other hand I had 250 rounds of 45 Colt reloads laying around and nothing to shoot them out of.

Well done. Lock or no it is a great revolver made out of a great (Mountain gun) concept.

Nice find, and yeah I know what you mean, I've got a couple with "the lock" in my safe too. Sometimes price, features, desire, right place at the right time, moon phase, etc.... all come into play and outweigh "the lock".

Another nice looking revolver. The .45 Colt has long been my favorite revolver big bore. Someday I'll get a 25 chambered for it. The ACP's are cool too, gotta love the moon clips.

Anyways, congrats on your new .45!

I like.

It will be a good all around handgun for you. The 45 Colt is an easy to shoot "pumpkin roller".

Don't worry about MIM, trigger lock or unpinned barrel. Just enjoy!

Nice rescue! You saved that fine revolver from a possible plastic allergy. That is a beautiful firearm, enjoy.

I doubt the technology has really hurt anything, it's a very nice revolver.

I used to think revolvers looked best in stainless, but the more I see blued revolvers the more I fall in love.

Beautiful firearm.
Congrats!
