Default 27-2 box Give-A-Way...

Free 27-2 free box give-a-way...and has been ok'd by Chad...

I am looking for the owner of a 27-2 made around 1973. It is a 5", blue with standard Magna stocks and service type hammer and trigger. The serial number is N166227....

If in two weeks no owner comes forward I will send it to the Member who has a blue 5" WHO DOES NOT HAVE BOX ALREADY which has the closet matching serial number. It is a little worn but better than no box at all...

So if you have an early to mid-1970s 5" blue 27-2 and would like to get in on this please post the first four numbers of your serial number and a picture of the gun if you can... N1662XX

..and for that matter anyone who has a 5" 27 is welcome to post a pic...they are wonderful guns...

Bob

Very nice of you, Bob!

Here's one. I agree that the 5" is the cat's meow. This one came with a box - beat up a bit and someone put duct tape on it, but it is the original box.

I have a 5"er with an S prefix and the original "held together with scotch tape" box. I hope you find the rightful owner.

The box wouldn't be correct for my nickel 5" 27-2 I bought back in April of 1974, but my serial is close to that box (N168XXX).

Here's what it looks like nowadays:

This old girl could use a box, she's real late '73 N199729, but it looks like I'm beat already.

Here's my 1975, 5" blue, "boxless" 27-2 (N3604xx).

A bit out of the range, but thanks for kind offer!

my poor, naked 5" is numbered N 186xxx. It won't win, but that's a terrific offer on your part.

Got excited to see that 166 for some reason. Mine ends with 166. Dyslexic memory, I guess. Kind offer. Hope you find it.

Close but no cigar; SN 161XXX. Mine was a 1998 gun show find (no box). Large area dealer had his helpers putting out his stock of used guns. This one was misidentified as a Model 15(?) for $215.00. I added the TH, TT and TS later.
