Default Carried My S&W 327 2 Inch Today

So I finally decided to add my 327 to my carry rotation today using my new Speed Beez OWB leather holster and was surprised to see how easy it was to carry. Hardly knew it was there with little, if any , printing. I've owned a number of revolvers over the years but none quite like the 327. It's quickly becoming my all time favorite.

Amazing gun and nice looking holster.

Wish the trigger guard was completely covered though

I am looking forward to the day when I own a PC327.

Nice! Welcome to the club. The 327pc and 340pd are my 2 favorite carry revolvers.

It's a DA revolver. The whole "gotta have the trigger guard covered" is a relatively recent (Glock, etc) thing.

Very nice rig. Not at all worried about the trigger guard thing! What are you carrying in it?

Gorgeous gun and great photos! I like the holster you chose as well. May I ask if you shoot full power 357’s in your 327 and if so have you ever had any issues with the IL partially or fully engaging?

I carry my regularly. Either on my hip or in my backpack. I have at least 1000 rounds of .357mag even more .38 special throught it. No issues so far. I do have one cylinder with a tiny bit of erosion on the cylinder but nothing worrisome .

what has been your experience shooting it? I know carrying it would be nicer. The 327pc is what drew me in to this realm in the first place.

Thank you for the feedback. I had a 327 a very long time ago and it did have issues with the IL engaging under 357 recoil. I ended up returning it to the gunshop I bought it from but I wish I would’ve sent it back to S&W instead. I know now this was a rare problem and am certain they would have fixed it. Ive never had an IL issue with any of my other Smiths including a SS 627PC and a TRR8. I see a new one in my near future.

You should really try one out if possible. I think you would be pleasantly surprised how the 327 handles recoil. IMO it’s not bad at all. Especially with a pair of rubber grips.

I frequently carry a S&W 327PC (with a Crimson Trace lasergrip), in my pocket, in a shoulder holster, or on a hip holster.

It is a GREAT choice of a carry piece.

So far the only ammo I have shot is Fiocchi 38 Special 130 grain and the recoil has been fine. I've tried to get Federal 38 special micro hat but it's impossible to find anywhere.

Default Nice gun. I like short barrels, but

not especially on a .357. I have a 2.5" Model 19 and to me a short barreled .357 is not much more than a hotly loaded .38 Special, and you have to deal with a lot more muzzle flash, noise and recoil.

That's a very nice set up mate, well done.

Let us know what the holster is (I may have missed that) and how you get on with it after carrying for a while?

Cheerio,

Roy

I ordered the holster from Speed Beez. It has their logo on it but I believe its made by DeSantis Holsters. Its a well made holster and very comfortable to wear. The 327 fits perfectly. Some forum members were bothered by the fact that the trigger guard is not completely covered but that not an issue for me. The trigger itself is covered and that's all that matters to me.

Another day carrying my 327 in my Speed Beez OWB holster and I like it more each time. So glad I used my stimulus money to buy this outstanding Smith and Wesson revolver. Feel like I did my part to stimulate the economy.

Very nice carry rig. Does the holster "clip" on the belt or
does the belt pass "thru" the holster? I've always preferred
"pass thru" holsters myself.

Yes the belt does pass though the holster. I definitely prefer that over the clip on ones.
