Had a Bowen-tuned 4" S&W M25 (.45LC) for a while. Bought it used, so it wasn't back-breakingly expensive, but it was a beautiful revolver. I spent too much time worrying about scratching it, so I never did enjoy it as I should have. Sold it to a gentleman on this forum--perhaps he'll chime in (and add pics).
Didn't stroke out on us, did you?
Or just building the suspense?
