Can Pre-27s join in?

S162839, shipped 30 Jan 1956 -- so 54 years old just a few days ago, and I think unfired in all its years outside of the factory.

My model Pre-27 serial number 1622xx along with her/my performance score. I'm researching what may turn out to be a colorful history. A great gun with 5 screws, 6 groove backstrap, recessed chambers, 6.5" barrel, after market Italian target grips, and a joy to shoot. A 1956 DOM. Enjoy!

1967 and a 1980. Both shoot famously and I promise to work on my photo skills one of these days.

I bought this 5" brand new in 1973 for $168s. It was bare bones with no options. I sent it back to the factory right away and got every option. My name engraved in a gold oval, presentation grips, presentation case, red post, white outline, target hammer & trigger.

You know how much we all like our 357Magnums.










Quote from the factory letter on this one.

3.5" 357 Magnum S758** shipped July 25 1950 and delivered to Frank Budge Co. Miami Fl. Records indicate " shipped with a 3.5" barrel ,blue finish ,checkered walnut grips .
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.








Regards , Allen Frame

Tom,
Where are your Model 27s?

I will also include some 327s and 627s even thought they are post 1989 revolvers.

My 6 shooters





Then there are these 8 shot model 27s that were introduced in 2000 and are still available today. Here is one of each variation that has been produced so far. All revolvers bear the same serial numbers with different prefixes. All six revolvers pictured in this photo are unfired and unturned since leaving the factory.


The 8 shots are also made in stainless and scandium alloy. These were first introduced in 1997. Lew Horton had commissioned 300 of the 8 shot model 627s. That was all that there were supposed to be. I had originally wanted serial number 357 but that was not going to happen. So the revolver in the upper left corner of the bottom photo is number 27. These sold so fast that LH decided to do another 300. So the revolver in the upper right corner of the last photo is number 357.





I love the look of the older ones. I prefer the old blue with some nice stocks. I adore the old top strap checkering, but these new ones just shoot so well they are hard to ignore.

I have more 27/327/627 revolvers, but they have not been photographed yet.

I'll start with the best one to me, a 5" pre-27 from 1954:



Followed by it's younger cousin, a 5" M27-2:



And finally a restored (from serious abuse) and round butted 3.5" M27-2:



Some day I'd like a 5-screw 3.5" but these will have to do for now. (smile)

My one and only:


[Edit] Seeing this old thread, I thought I should update my picture. Still my one and only. I have since swapped out the grips for some smooth magnas and swapped out the hammer/trigger for semi-target hammer/smooth combat trigger. I like it much better in this configuration.

snw19 357,

Lowly? Don't see a thing wrong with that one. If you really don't like it I bet there are any number of members here who can find a home for it. (smiley face goes here)

Lots of great M27 types y'all.

I've owned two, but let one get away years ago to fund something else. Never again . . . I hope!

Here's my 3 1/2" barreled Model 27-2.

I hope you'll humor me here . . . I'm experimenting with my new, home-made light box with different settings and backgrounds . . . and can't find my gray card!

Here are new photos tonight, on a maroon background . . . I'm still trying to master the exposure settings. It is hard to photograph shiny metal objects, as we all know!




Same gun, last week on white . . .




Keep that eye candy coming!!!

Tom

Pretty, ugly? You decide. It came to me this way. I immediately started gathering parts to return it to it's original nickel.

Not finding a good nickel thumbpiece or ejector rod, it sat around like this for a while. It kinda grew on me. Besides, I might go to a Texas BBQ. I'm still looking for those two parts though...

Gorgeous Hoot!

There are plenty of stock nickle M27s out there. I think I'd leave it as it is and get a nice, fancy holster for your beautiful M27 and start eating lots of barbecue!!!

Thanks Tom! I've got a black flower-carved holster that looks just right.

I don't think Charlie Sherril will let me in to the BBQ though.

Hoot,

You come to Texas, I'll BBQ for ya just to see that thing in person!
I like it - it's Texas gaudy. If you've ever seen Texas Ranger guns, especially Lone Wolf's - that one would fit right in.

Default My 27s

This set of 27-2s took me about 20 years to complete with the 6 1/2", an early gun, being the last! Note in the pics, you will see a couple with there original shipping cartons for the presentation case.

Hmmm . . .

I'm beginning to see how COLLECTING a bunch of "Cadillacs" can be both intoxicating, and addicting!

Weatherby that is one super gun and the grips are outstanding, are they carved bone or ivory? I got to find some more 27s;38/44s; and old N-frames. Thanks for sharing!

Your photos are simply awesome! They give me something to shoot for . . . and remind me that a few "lazy" things I tolerated when taking mine simply won't cut it when you want a flawless photo. I'm sure you know exactly the things I did wrong, or little details in the reflections I tried to get away with.

Yep . . . great shots indeed . . . and both humbling and illustrational!

Thanks for posting!

Tom
