Default Model 327 Performance Center

Thinking of buying one these little 8-shot 2" jobs!!! Searched for all the info I could find; but wondering who owns one and how they like it? Would use for CC some of the time; currently carry a 342PD. Obviously, the 327 wouldn't be as lightweight & concealable; but can't get this little dandy (some think ugly!) out of my mind. Also, has this model gone regular production or still just PC?

This is definitely on my to get list as well. Looks like a lot of fun. It's a gun people either love or hate. Even though it's supposed to be limited production I see them advertised all over the net. If weight isn't a big consideration you might want to look at the 627 PC UDR reissue. I plan on owning both, though. I love snubs.

I added a random photo I found on Google just 'cause it's much more fun to look at pics.

Default 2" N frame snubs


Got 2, I only carry this one during the colder weather when it is a little easier to conceal, usually with +P's Haven't tried them with 357's.

Outstanding! What's the model designation for the one with the unfluted cylindar? I've got a 327NG and have been meaning to add a 327 PC to the stable as well, but this is the first I've seen of an unfluted version.

The Performance Center cut its teeth making custom limited run special use guns. Today, they have a number of production guns available built on the 627 and the 327 platform. They are not limited runs, but still are PC revolvers.

notredame, does the un-fluted one have a longer frame or is just the angle position of the camera? cause if it is a longer frame, I must have it!
