The '''[[Smith & Wesson]] (S & W) Model 625''', is a six round single and [[trigger (firearms)|double action]] [[revolver]] chambered for the [[.45 ACP]] (also known as .45 Auto) [[Cartridge (firearms)|cartridge]] and [[.45 Auto Rim]]. The 625 in .45 ACP will headspace the cartridge in the chambers without use of [[moon clips]], but since the [[Extractor (firearms)|extractor]] cannot engage the rimless cartridge, [[moon clip]]s are needed to facilitate ejection. Based on S&W's stainless steel '''N''' (large) revolver frame, the Model 625, was introduced as the .45 CAL MODEL OF 1988, in 1988 as a limited edition model intended as an [[International Practical Shooting Confederation]] (ISPC) commemorative. It was equipped with a 5&nbsp;inch (127&nbsp;mm) barrel with a full-length underlug.<ref name=supica>{{cite book|title=Standard Catalog of Smith & Wesson|last= Supica|first =Jim|coauthors= Richard Nahas |edition =3|page=293|publisher = F+W Media, Inc|year= 2007|isbn= 978-0-89689-293-4}}</ref><ref name="EPR2002">{{cite book| last = Hartink| first = A.E.| title = The Complete Encyclopedia of Pistols and Revolvers| publisher = Chartwell Books, Inc| year = 2002| pages = 283–284| location = Edison, New Jersey| isbn = 978-0-7858-1519-8}}</ref>
