You are a lucky man to have a 5" 27-2. I still have not experienced that miracle.

Thumbs up

Those 5" wheel guns really are very attractive. Should I ever encounter one I'll definitely be in the market. I like my 4" n-frames but the fives really do have an allure.

If I could only own one S&W, that would be it.

Nice but the serials should have an S or N prefix.

Thus far,I only have one 27 five incher, a late 27-8.

I've concluded that 3 inches is ideal for a J,4 inches for a K,and 5 for a N.
