Probably 1976? My 27-2 is quite a bit older, not much of a reference point.

Most likely mid 1978. Only a letter will tell.

One of the benefits of membership in the SWCA is the opportunity to submit a ship date request once a week, answered by Roy Jinks. One of many benefits.

Most likely mid to late 1976. I have a 44 Magnum serial numbered in the N353000 range that shipped in September 1976 (for reference).

I found a couple of 27-2 s on Gunbroker that listed serial numbers and build dates for 1978 and 1977. If those are correct, my gun is from 1976. Thanks for all the replies.
