Model 25 Mountain Gun?

Is the Model 25 Mountain Gun still being produced? I see it is still listed on the website, but am having a hard time finding one around. Is it a quality piece? Appreciate anyone with any experience with the .45 Colt Mountain Gun. Thanks.

I don't know if they still make them or not, but I had one that I regret selling.....the only thing
I feel was a 'drawback' is the fact that they cannot handle the hotrodded .45 Colt 'magnum'
loadings, at least without significantly accelerated wear. Mine was pretty accurate, but my 629
Mountain was more so, but this was with over the counter ammo. I probably could have
developed a more accurate handload, given time, which I didn't have with this gun.

So, the Model 25 won't take the high pressure stuff from Cor-Bon or Buffalo Bore? That is too bad, that is what really makes the .45 Colt appealing to me for the fact that you can use the mild loads for plinking and practice and then the heavy loads for hunting.

I didn't say it wouldn't take it, just that it will accelerate wear quite
appreciably. (I've blown up a model 29 Classic with only 14 rounds of
Randy Garretts excellent hunting loads.....whole 'nother story... :-? ), so
now I err on the side of caution with my S&W's, and if I want a big foomer
I go with a Ruger or Contender.

You really don't need to hot rod the .45 Colt. There is not much that a standard load, say 250 grain LSWC moving along at 1000 fps, won't put down for keeps.

Depends on it's use, but for
the most part I'd agree.
