You have a real beauty of a revolver there. Let us know how it performs.

Bought the gun as a shooter.   Forcing cone and muzzle look good.  Trigger is a bit heavy.  I'll put in a spring kit and swap out the grips for some aftermarket grips.  Planning to give it a good chance to perform with a good 158/160 grain bullet.  If it chooses not to I've got old S&W collector buddies waiting in the wings to trade me out of it. Very Happy

You've had it a day and still haven't shot it!!   You have a lot more patience than I do.

Beautiful looking gun with a lot of character.  I just purchased a S&W Model 27-2.  Looking for it to arrive next week.

In the early 80's I sold a 6" LNIB 27 with the 3-T pkg to my kid brother for $200.  Being the bull headed obstinate kind of person he is, he won't sell it back to me for the same price, go figure:)SmileSmile

These were really beautifully made.

Shoots pretty good... Front sight way to tall for the load this morning.  I'm going to slow it down a bit and see if I can't get the impact up a bit without a sight change.
