Grommet, take a look at the following link for Sports South, it happens that they currently have your 627 Pro and both versions of the 617 in stock. If your dealer is signed up with Sports South, they can have both guns at your dealer inside of a week. However, you will need to act quickly, last time that Sports South recieved a run of the 617 they sold out in less tha 5 days. Online Catalog
BTW, while Sports South isn't as widely known as Davidson's, they are a superb distributor with excellent service, they just don't do "specials" like Davidson's or Lew Horton. One big plus is that they do carry a much wider selection than Davidson's or Lew Horton. The downside is their internet catalog has a lousy search feature set. However they do keep it up to date on "in stock" status and don't delay on shipping at order out to their dealers. I've ordered thru Sports South in the past and recieved great service, so I won't hesitate to do it again.
One other note, the prices listed are the MSRP and what your dealer actually charges should be significantly less than that price. At my local Sports South dealer that 627 Pro would go for about 790 if I pay cash, with a credit card about 850 because he discounts for cash sales. If your dealer is charging a lot more, try shopping around for another dealer in your areaa and see what he'll do for cash up front.
PS; I watch their catolog on a daily basis waiting for one particular gun to come into stock. As for what brand or model that is, I won't reveal because I'd rather not have any other eyes watching for this gun to come into stock. However, in my checking I've seen how their stocking status will change on a daily basis.
