Our Assessment: The Model 624 was introduced in 1985 as S&W’s stainless steel .44 Special target revolver. The .44 Special cartridge is not as punishing as the .44 Magnum with respect to recoil, but is still a quite serviceable defensive cartridge and is known for its accuracy in revolvers, making this a good choice for target shooting as well. This revolver is in about Excellent condition with 98% of its finish, a bright bore, strong mechanics and comes with a box and factory accessories. For the Smith & Wesson collector, this is a great find, but for the shooters it will make a fine target revolver, plinker, or even home defense revolver. Please see our photos and good luck!
