Default N & k frames 5” barrels

How about a limited run of n & k frames with 5” barrels?

Gotta love the 5” barrel guns. Had Andy Horvath cut some of my 6” PPC’s to 5” and had some custom .32’s made in 5” barrels. I like the look and balance of 5”, Larry

I have several 5”, K frames, easily my favorite length for that frame. The N frame? I have one 5”, a Heavy Duty from 1950. Really like the balance and feel of that revolver but … I have handled 5” barreled N frames chambered for larger cartridges and do not like the feel nearly as much. In (45 ACP or long Colt) the barrel feels very muzzle light and the handling is sluggish, in MY hands.

I hope they do bring them back, it sounds like others enjoy them.

I had a 3 1/2" pre-27 and a 6" 27-5 .... when I saw a 5" 27-2, I jumped on it in less than 1 second!
