Default Model 27 gun shop score a few years back

In 2011 my wife and I traveled up from the hot Arizona desert floor to spend a few days in the cool pines of Prescott AZ, stopping at a Prescott Valley Gun Shop along the way. In both Prescott and Prescott Valley over the years Iíve found 3 or 4 S&W gems, this trip was no different. When we went in a large family was looking over the centrally located display of long guns with only one employee who was behind the counter, keeping an eye on the group. I was focused on the glass display cases and the shop keeper immediately was engaged with my wife in conversation when I spotted this piece; Model 27-2 sporting Smith & Wesson Combat Stocks, a $369 dollar price tag on it, WOW! The gent eventually dropped his focus on my wife and asked if I needed any help and I said yes, I want to buy that one right there and I did. Turns out it had just come in on trade, hadnít even been cleaned or appraised, a simple cursory price put on it until things slowed down in the shop, which put me in the right place at the right time, a rarity! Anyway, it has blemishes and would hang up on one cylinder, but a fellow member, Sebago Son, he put me on the right track even though Iíd checked the area several times, but still missed it; with a magnifying glass, I found a VERY small piece of slag that was almost welded to the cylinder face and required a dental pick to pry offÖ. I simply couldnít see it without magnification. That fixed, itís a sweet, accurate shooter and one in my arsenal that I really cherish.

Great gun, great stocks, great price and good story too. I've got a story with similarities. Early in 2011 Cabelas opened a new store in Allen, Texas. I dropped by the first week and saw a nickel 3.5 inch in a case in the Gun Library. Ok, nice but given Cabelas prices probably not for me. Handled it though and it turned out to be an S serial number and the tag said "with box." Took them a half hour to find the box but that turned out to be one of the blue S&W unmarked boxes (sent with guns that came in the wooden presentation boxes I think); anyway the box contained the original paperwork and unopened cleaning kit. Price, $526 OTD. Guess I overpaid compared to your deal.

Nice deals, nice guns, and grips. I have yet to come across anything like this yet. Maybe one day I will hit the lotto like both you you did.

That's awesome.

I've paid more than that for a single pair of grips.
Sold S&W Combat grips for more than that too.
