Default Gun Show Find

Well I did the little gun show in Cody Wy last weekend and I thought I was gonna actually make it through a gun show without buying a gun. Weird I know but I am trying to thin the herd a bit. And to be honest I didn't buy it outright. Traded an older somewhat used Model 36 on it..I had a fellow bring me an older Model 27 no dash with an 8 3/8 inch bbl. Not a real fan of long bbl'd guns and this is the 2nd I have seen lately. He wanted the 36 for a carry gun and I traded him the slightly sad 36 and 5 sets of RCBS dies for the 27. Wrong -2 stocks with a set of Pachmayrs and the gun is really just a shooter in my opinion but nice and tight. Serial is S19032X and is a 4 screw . So I hope this post is in the right sub-forum area. Can anyone tell me when it may have been made/shipped? The only feature I do not like about this revolver is the front sight is a patridge. Yeah it is a little holster worn etc but looks like it might be a fun gun to shoot. This is my 5th 27 . Have the 3 1/2 (2)5s 6 and now the 8 3/8...Gotta look for a 4 inch one now. Scored a bunch(1350 rounds) of 38 and 357 jacketed ammo for a really great price this weekend too so we will see how it shoots

S19032x
S182,000 – S194,499……Late 1958 – Early 1959 (manufacture)
I do not have any SNs on my list which are close enough to establish a probable shipping date range. I'd guess sometime in 1959.

4 inchers are hard to find, it took me awhile to find a blue and a nickel. I would love to have 5 screw 4 inchers to go with my other 5 screw 27s, BUT they are really hard to find. I think you will find the 8 3/8th are great for target and hunting.

Thanks for the info. I had a 6 1/2 inch 27 quite a while ago and sold it. A retired Leo came through the show on Saturday and had a 4 inch 27. I did make an offer on it but he wouldn't even entertain the idea. It had been his original handgun he carried when in a patrol car. Said he still had a swivel holster he used at the time. He said he had to buy his own back then and bought it in a gas station/gun /grocery store

The Patdrige fron sight is very easy to file into a factory looking ramped style. A 40 lines per inch checkering file will replicate exactly the factory sight serrations and match the rib serrations.
