Default New Kydex Holster for 327

There are not a ton of holster options for the 327 that I am aware of so I was quite surprised to stumble along a kydex offering made specifically for this revolver. Not much experience with it yet but it is very thin and fits the revolver perfectly. It has adjustable ride height and cant and a removable claw. After trying every possible combination it ended up back in the configuration it arrived in. Funny how that works. Not sure how I feel about it yet but I thought I would share it here in case anyone was interested.

It is made by Kaos Concealment.

I've checked out these holsters online. They look good. Even though I carry owb in leather 99.9% of the time,I may check this one out. What position do you carry it?

That’s one of the most purposeful-looking guns that Smith ever produced.


Please feel free to share more pics !

Before I purchased this holster I had been using an Uncle Mike’s soft holster positioned near appendix. Not my favorite way to carry but with such a wide cylinder I found it concealed the best that way for me. This Kaos holster is a no go in that position however as the kydex really digs in when bending or driving. Still getting used to it though but right now it rides at about 4 o’clock.

I still can’t figure out why the snub nosed 327 costs more than the adjustable site 329’s. I guess the factory wants to encourage shooters to get pounded by a light .44 Mag?
At least the 327 is more practical for most but more expensive.

Currently S&W lists the MSRP of the 327 $165 more then the 329. My only guess would be that perhaps the 327 requires more machining. Between the integrated rear sight, dovetailed front sight, cutting 8 chambers for moon clips, and installing a trigger stop I would imagine there might be more manufacturing costs.
