Earlier this year I had someone at a store try to talk me into a Smith & Wesson Model 625 which is a .45ACP revolver with the most heinous grip on the planet. To me it takes an otherwise nice looking pistol and turns it into something from the 1960’s/1970’s. It might as well have a mood ring come with it or a lava lamp. I’m sure someone could fabricate different grips for the firearm, but at $850+ you’d think it would come any way you want it. Personally the gap at the front of the cylinder adds to the unattractive nature and that laminated wood in Partridge Family colors just doesn’t help. I’d take it for free, or maybe to help out a buddy hard on his luck, but otherwise wouldn’t keep it with my other firearms for fear the ugly might rub off.
