Our Assessment: Jerry Miculek knows a little about ultra-fast performance. His record 12 shots, two loads of six with a reload in between, in under three seconds set the standard for speed shooting. Smith & Wesson and Jerry Miculek have collaborated to design a revolver to deliver ultra-fast performance – the Model 625 JM. Since the 1850s, Smith & Wesson has supported sport shooting, a part of the American firearm heritage, with new products and activities to keep the challenge alive. Along with sponsoring a wide variety of shooting sports and events across the country, Smith & Wesson is especially proud to sponsor the successful careers of Doug Koenig, Jerry Miculek and Julie Goloski Golob – three of the world’s most legendary shooters as they compete and win with Smith & Wesson firearms. This is an excellent revolver in a common semi-automatic caliber which should serve you well in competition, as a defensive pistol, or to add to a Smith & Wesson collection missing this particular variant of the 625. It is in Excellent condition with light wear and strong mechanics. Please see our photos and good luck!
