Default Time to bring thread to the front of the line

My new to me M27-2 The walnut magnas are ugly and useless to me even with Tyler T's so I got these coke palm swell Grips from Mr. Kurac and love them.

Default The third in my modest collection

This one, made in 1978, has a couple of small places on the barrel, but was too good a buy to pass.

Only got one 27-2.

'75, 27-2, my most favorite .357, balances perfectly in the hand.



Actually walked into a store years ago and saw two identical 27-2s, this and another one and bought both. Later sold one to fund other S&Ws. The nickel on this was LNIB; however, I subsequently got a 13-2 nickel that was "cloudy". I then realized that nickel could be scratched and "funky".

I hate this, I hate this!! The last five S&Ws I looked at to purchase in CA had rubber grips. Seems the owners want to get another $$ bump from the grips. The owner wants $700 for this and it's not complete. I've been collecting ex-LEO guns and for me, rubber is O.K. BUT not on a N frame w/a wooden box.



Any thoughts?

Well, I think $700 is a little high w/o the proper grips, but at least you get two screwdrivers and not a mop!

700 might be high but for 700 and a few hundred more you can get a set of Keith grips and have a nicer revolver than a new classic S&W. When it comes to older S&W's I can rationalize anything

This is the gun that brought me to this forum. A just-inherited 1958 Model 27 (no dash) that belonged to my wife's late grandfather and, as stated earlier in this thread, has been "humiliated with a set of Plastic stags." Since it was grandpa's gun, the cheap Franzite stags will stay.

Excuse the poor pic. When I get tired of learning about S&Ws, I'll take the time to learn to shoot a proper photo.

Default 27-2 Photo Crazy!

This thread is so inspiring, what a great collection of model 27's.
There are so many good photos here that I wanted to try my hand and take a few shots of my 1975 27-2, 3 1/2" barrel. Well I ended up swapping grips, and trying to be a little more artistic with the photos. Here are the best of my session:

This is the gun as I purchased it. Target stocks, trigger and hammer.







I then put on a set of Magnas and took a few more.







Lastly, I replaced the Magnas with a set of Patrick Grashorn's beautiful Elk Stag grips. He does excellent work at very reasonable prices. These really change the look of this gun.

I think you made the right choice staying with Patrick's grips, but those targets you have are amazing. Fantastic grain.

Wow, I know now how inadequate my existance is. I must make amends. I'm going to the next gun show and taking this darn Diamondback with me, and try to find me a "shooter" 27.

I've really loved this thread. I'm surprised, however, at how few 27-3s show up. Most of you seem to have 27-2s. I'm the proud owner of a 27-3, perhaps my favorite revolver. It's strictly a shooter, has a little wear on it, but I love it.

In the last 2 months I picked up a 27-3 Nickle 6" and this week a 27-2 Blue in 3 1/2" I was content, happy until Boykinlp threw out that 5". I guess I'd better deal with the 27 addiction and find one. Dang Boykinlp that 5" is beautiful. Tired of it yet? :-)

The 1950 catalog describes the hammer as follows; Swedged spur deeply checkered and notched for thumb tip clearance,shortened hammer fall weight and timed for uniform ignition".
This is what is referred to as a high hammer spur. In the 1950s the factory offered what they refer to as the low hammer spur which dipped the position of the hammer spur."






















A 4" Registered Magnum that shipped with a 6" barrel,blue ,and walnut Magnas with Call gold bead front sight.

A lot has happened to this one in the 74 years since it shipped to the Illinois State Police on
April 10 1936. The Magnas are gone,as is the Call gold bead.The barrel was cut down to 4". Buffed and bright nickeled ,and humiliated with a set of Plastic stags. Hammer and trigger modified to target configuration ,and checkered.
It will be gently restored throughout this coming year.












all 11 of the N frames in the front of this picture are N frame 357s. 10 have checkered topstraps.

27-2 in 3.5" Yep them there handles is Goodyears, not dark exotic wood. I'm thinking custom wood. I picked it up last Wednesday and yet haven't come to grips with the Issue.

The 27-3 Nickle 6" was my first one. It built the fire for those to follow.

Nice find NA225! My born on date is in '66 too. I'd love to find a 27 from that year. Closest I've come is my 27-2 6.5" from 1967.

I think this is one of the best threads I've ever come across. And I have determined this is my favorite picture of any gun....ever. Just outstanding! Doublesharp, I will PM my information for inclusion in your will.

Thanks to all for contributing such fine images.

Today I picked up my second S&W revolver (first being a Model 25 that I picked up this past winter) - this time I got a Model 27 "no dash" with serial number S1919XX. Set me back $730, but I'd say it's well worth it...

Damn that is a deep blue...

Better pics to come - these are from the sales posting:

I just recently bought this 27-2 - won't be my last. Probably the nicest gun I've ever shot and a work of art at the same time:

Here's the pics I promised of my 27 "No Dash". There are three details that smudges the glory: 1) The front sight has a small ding to it (which I think I can knock out ever so gently); 2) Someone who didn't know how to do it properly has pried loose the side plate; and 3) The original grips are lost to time.

I still love it though:

Regarding the 27 above, what would have been the correct grips for it (as delivered from the factory)?
The guy I bought it from said it had ill-fitting (no doubt!) K-frame grips when he bought it.

Only way to know for sure is to get a letter from S&W.
