Performance Center guns originate from standard designs or are created from the ground up. From hand-cutting and fitting to fine tuning for precision, these firearms are top performers. Products from the Performance Center are the ultimate expression of old-world craftsmanship blended with modern technology.
Used for competition. Grip fit was terrible. Plan buying grips before you order it. Performance Shop does very little these days. Comparing the fit, finish and action to my completely stock Model 66 from 1985 is a joke. The M66 blows it away. I sent the 625 out to a real smith who actually do to it what the performance shop did not... Make it into a custom revolver. Better to buy the standard 625 and spend the extra with a good revolver gunsmith.
I got the pistol and took it to the range to try it out. Loaded it up and after the first shot I had to look at my left hand. The left grip had a high spot on the top rear and I thought it had cut my hand. I readjusted my grip several times and each time the grip bit into my thumb. Being a Performance Center pistol I would expect much better quality control than what I got. I love the wood grips but ordered and installed some Hogue grips. Love shooting the gun now.
