Default Response from S&W Cust Serv on Spec Order 627

So I e-mailed S&W Customer Service a couple of days ago regarding getting a second Perf Ctr 627 (2.625" barreled UDR) but this time with a fluted cylinder.

S&W says: "You will have to purchase the 627 with the un-fluted cylinder and then send the gun into us for a cylinder replacement. I would guess the cost of a new cylinder and installation would be around $125.00. Regards, Steve Customer Service 1-800-331-0852 Ext. 4125."

Any reason I should not do this?

Thanks for any advice.

P.S., my plan is to get the second weapon in, then see which of the two could benefit the most from a Performance Center action job, and send that weapon in for the fluted cylinder and the action job.

That's the way it should be.

Well they're going to send the original unfluted cylinder back to me since I purchased a second one right?

'Nkl'? It should be SS!

For a few bucks more, I'd send it 'home' for the cylinder. Not sure about the need for a trigger job. My first UDR, bought new 4/2010, got my usual cleanup and lightened Wolff springs. My second one, bought new 10/2000, was left 'as-is' - and, today, is indistinguishable, DA pull-wise, from the first one - save one difference. It'll pop any primer, while the first one only pops Federal primers 100%. I'd shoot the one you want to modify a bit before you opt for a trigger job - the PC Shop guns really are a bit 'special'.

PS Eastwood's character wasn't known for his marksmanship with his UDR in 'Blood Work'.

I have two of these now, both of recent production and sporting unfluted cylinders. I tend to avoid fluted cylinders on shorter-barrel N-frames because every fractional reduction in mass has the potential to delay target reacquisition when shooting hot loads -- or even medium loads for shooters with small hands and low arm mass.

Yes, flutes may look better. But there's a reason S&W calls their premium handgun division the Performance Center and not the Design Center.

Don't even get me started on Titanium N-frames.

I sent my original "Bloodwork" gun back for a fluted cylinder a couple of years ago. It cost $214 including shipping back to me. They also sent the old cylinder back. It would not fit back on the yoke without some tweeking so I left it alone. I would suggest that you request a new cylinder with it's own fitted yoke and keep the original cylinder with it's own yoke. It surely won't cost that much more. I much prefer the fluted cylinder.
