Smith & Wesson Model 25 Snub - .45 LC from TJ's Custom Gunworks used in Mr. & Mrs. Smith.

Model 26

The Model 25 is .45 ACP. The Model 26 is .45 Colt. --Maxman (talk) 20:53, 9 December 2016 (EST)

Actually I believe the Model 26 is just the 'Target' version, while Model 25 is more the standard or 'duty' version - Akin to the Model 14/Model 15 relation. Both were available in LC and ACP chamberings. StanTheMan (talk) 01:47, 10 December 2016 (EST)
My bad. Strangely, I can't find any photos of the Model 26, and all photos of the 25 show it with target sights and ejector rod shroud. Incidentally, when did S&W switch from the pencil barrel to the bull barrel? My 1950 Target (pre-25, .45 Auto) and half the photos I can find are the pencil barrel, but the others show the bull barrel. --Maxman (talk) 16:08, 11 December 2016 (EST)
Sorry for the late reply. Anyway, not too sure but I figure the Model 26 must have been short run and very rare. As for bull barrels, I think they must have went to those a short bit later (probably around the time they started using numbers on the models). The earliest run 'Chief's Specials' had thinner barrels with round sights (from the Model 32 'Terrier') rather than the larger ramp-sight barrels on later 'Model 36's.
