The 625-8 felt best in hand with good balance and smooth working trigger in double action.
Punching out empties was fast since empty cases cleared the cylinder chambers.
Note how the clip holds the rimless 45 ACP cartridges in the extractor groove.
We would chamfer the chamber mouths to making loading easier and faster.
