Default Pre-27 6" is now home:)

Found this little jewel sitting all lonely on a shelf at a local gun and saddle store this past Saturday. I was in a hurry and it was Tuesday before I was able to rescue her and give her a new zipcode....mine.
What you see is what I have...sticks are not numbered. All other numbers match and the action and cylinder are absolute butter.

Very nice, you can never be to rich to thin or have to many model 27's let us know how it shoots. Thanks for posting the pictures

Extremely nice. I bet you are going to love it. In fact, I bet you love it already.

I found a similar six-inch Pre-27 a year or so back -- not good enough to be a collector gun, but at the high end of shooter grade. I got it some Kurac stocks and have plans for it that may include a new front sight. I also picked up a five-inch barrel with a gold bead front sight on it already, so I have some options. The shorter barrel does not have the front locking pin in the shroud, so I will have to go to a ball detente system for the yoke if I put that one on. This one will be one of my laboratory guns.

Yours looks really good! Nice score.

This one was an 8 3/8" that had a superb DA trigger...I wanted another 6". So I went through the S&W parts drawer at the Academy (when we still had a revolver parts drawer), found a nice 6" barrel, and had Jim Hoag install it. Shoots exactly like a nice 27-2 6", and I'm happy. Love the 27.

NICE,
I just picked one up as well but with the Baughman site.
Model 27's are the best.

Very nice. Great pics as well.

I have a Python. And I have 5 M27-2s and 4 M586s. I'd always take them over a Python for serious work. And I like my Python but I think the M27-2 or Pre-M27 is as fine as any Python.

Very nice. The stocks are from a slightly later vintage model 27 (likely a -2) and would not be numbered; it probably had diamond Magnas from the factory. Enjoy!

gr8smiles, those are great photos of a great N frame.
I jumped on the 6 inch ( and change ) Mod 27 bandwagon with this -2...



... and it puts 158gr LHP's in the smallest circle on the target of any big revolver I have.

gr8smiles, excellent rescue of a beautiful pre-27. I am certain it is happier now that it will be properly appreciated.

Very nice pre 27, be careful those things have a way of multiplying somehow in the gunsafe. I put one in my safe a few years ago and now ther are six, not sure how that happened.
