If the first one is a Smith & Wesson, why does it look like a bull (Taurus?) on the grip medallion?

Artistic freedom maybe? The website calls it a 625 Magnum. It's a video game weapon selection...I think. I'm not a gamer - I just ran acrosss searching for a 625.

Since it's a Polish site, I'm guessing it's not a bull but a bad attempt at a crest with a lion rampant.

Sam's right.

Wow...tough crowd. In spite of the "goofy" revolver, I'll still give the artist a thumbs up for the art work. What do you expect from a guy/gal who's probably never seen or held the real deal.

I was guessing photoshop

I think the grips are trying to emmulate Pachmayr's.

No rear-sight tenon along the topstrap.
No checkering on the hammer spur.
No hammer-NOSE on the hammer.
No firing-pin hole in the breechface.
No front locking bolt for the ejector rod.
Porting on the end of the ejector rod?

The most glaring of all? Sideplate on the LEFT side of the gun.

OTOH, perhaps he's right, and the artist never has seen the real deal.

Also, 625 has long forcing cone/short cylinder and Patridge sights.

But for someone who's probably never clapped eyes on one in real life, it ain't too shabby.

Yes, but this is a 625

MAGNUM. That usually denotes a longer cartridge.
