I don't recall seeing any 4" pre-27s in recent auctions, do you mind sharing with me where you saw these so that I can update this thread with that information. Thanks

You're right, I could find none this year. I extrapolated from '17 & '18 sales. Gunauction, Guns America etc.. getting $2k+ for nice but not pristine guns. None LNIB, so that's a guesstimate.

Wow I’ve never seen a 4” pre 27. When I was First shopping around for a 27 I feel like I saw a lot of 4” 27-2 but by the time I was ready to buy all I could find were the 3.5” guns. Would really like to get my hands on an early one some day. It’s a real shame S&W didn’t produce more 4” N frames, I love the aesthetics of it and handling.

I think that is why so many 4" Barreled N-Frame .357 Magnum Highway Patrolman revolvers were made. They are a great gun and that matte black finish is a functional-affordable-classy all its own...

For a pre-27 4in? Pending itís not actually a Reg Mag or Non Reg Mag I would thinks thatís probably more than double street value.

That being said they didnít make many

That's in the price range that I recently sold my 4" pre-27 for.

As you can see by previous posts there are only about 25 of them.
