What is it about the 3 1/2" N-frame Model 27? The proportions!!!!! ...... The frame size; to butt to barrel length the proportions are pleasing to the eye ......... not to go all Harvey Weinstein; but kind of like the old 36-24-36
it just looks 'right" and is pleasing to the eye.

Inverse is also true..... pre-war service stocks on a 8 3/8" N-frame..... IMO looks wrong and out of proportion.

From all the pictures here; generally there's nothing else in the picture to judge size against....I wanted a 3 1/2" 27 for about 10 years......but when I finally held one.... OMG it's "BIG". Turns out when I actually am holding them,I like the 4 and 5 inch barrel length 27s and 28s better than the 3 1/2 for overall size. LOL I see rcortesvargas in post #59 above agrees with me!!!!

Take a look at a 3" K-frame 66.....smaller but the same proportions..... frame to butt to barrel are similar to a 3 1/2" N-frame...............but the overall size allows for easy concealed carry.
