Default Model 27-2 5"

Howdy. Thought I would throw on a photo of one of the guns I don't shoot as often as I would like to/should. Any bright spots in the photo is just reflection of light. The blue is basically 99%+, with a very,very slight cylinder stop rub. It shows more in the photo because of the light, than in reality, basically like the bottom pic. There is a bit of oil marks I didn't clean properly for the pics either.
Now for the bad part, the ejector rod bluing has thinned a bit.

I'm not that good with finding serial number dates. This one is N419419, so I'm not sure of the year of manufacture. I have no idea as to value, but I'll be keeping it for a while. At least till my 6 year old is ready to shoot it. I've got the plethora of other revolvers and slide guns to shoot, so this one is more of a drama queen.

Yup the blue plastic tray is broke and worn, so I only take it out for the cheese cake.

Nice looking gun. If you want the liner restored, there is a forum member who does great work at reasonable prices.

Nice M27. I had a nickel one once, but had to sell it.

Great balance; I love 5" revolvers.

Nice 27, looks great. If it were mine I would get the box liner fixed it is very easy to do and inexpensive. The 5" boxes are almost as hard to find as the 3.5" and when you do find one the price will shock ya. Save as many broken pieces as possible so they can be epoxied back in. That box could be repaired and refelted in a couple hours and about $10 in materials.

Here's my 1975 27-2 5" in the box. Luckily my liner has held together just fine. This box is a bit unusual as the corners are mitered which I've been told is factory but I don't know for sure.

If you're shooting others to save that one, I'd suggest rethinking. I shoot mine, a near copy of your's, and have done so for the 30 years I've had it since I bought it new. None better, the Cadillac of the entire S&W line, perfect barrel length. There is a good reason this was the favorite revolver of the late Skeeter Skelton.

and its a good looking inbetween between the 6 and the 4 inch, giving it the look of the 19 although I would imagine it might be a little tricky to get a factory holster for it though.

The 5 inch Model 27-2 is one of my favorite revolvers because I think it balances the best of the 27-2's and yours is a beauty.

Hey, thanks very much!

And thanks to you other fellas with the info and compliments.

I understand completely about the "unfired" thing. It's just, I put 25k worth every year through the other 4 K frames during PPC season. Lot's of snow on the ground now, till approx April and I'll start again. It's my only safe queen/wall hanger, until maybe I find a pre 29 in the same condition.

My yin and yang are at odds right now.

Gotta love the 5" 27...the -2 variation is my first pick. Available, still well-made and affordable. This one has Herrett's Ropers; Skeeter Skelton's favorite.

This one will eventually become a .44 special but works pretty good as is.

When I bought mine new in 1970 it had no extras. I sent it back to smith and had all extras put on plus my name engraved in gold.

Here's my Model 27-2, 5" with Keith Brown grips on it. I have not shot it and am not sure I will, as I have my Model 28's for shooting.

That "odd" grip is after I cut the stocks down to fit my hand, rounded the edges for better carrying. I've done this to a couple, and it works just fine - better IMO than either the Magnas w/ Tyler or the targets or clones that are stock. My issue is the last two fingers have very little purchase on the factory targets, and lots of wood remains below the hand that is useless. Here's another, this one a M57:

I ment odd in the sense that it doesnt quite line up with the checkering on the bottom, but I can see how that would change your grip angle with the gun and allow you to easily grasp the gun better.

Default HELP!

Hey everyone, I am trying very very hard to find a model 27 with a 5 inch barrel. So far no luck. I have been looking for years and would like to get one for my dad who has always dreamed of having one. Do you know anyone who might have one to sell or any suggestions on where to look? Thanks

The 5" 27-2 is my favorite S&W handgun. fyimo's pictures are an excellent representation of these fine guns as usual....

One of the unique features of the 27 is the checkered top strap and rib -- a feature no other S&W shares.... justifying it being proclaimed the "Premium" S&W handgun.

TDC,
I wholeheartedly agree with you on the Model 27
being one of the best of the best of the S&W masterpieces.
Here is a 5 inch 27-2 that I bought new in May, 1973, with it's original stocks. This gun has not been fired since leaving the factory.





And, fyimo does, indeed, post outstanding gun pictures.

Very nice...but that's the only thing I'd fault it on, lack of experience. The good news is that can be fixed pretty easy!

So good to see members like you, teesur, have the self discipline, foresight and lack of need to shoot them all.

You have a large collection of new and unfired early guns that are beautiful representations of their era. Like the huge majority of my collection, yours appear to be not only new and unfired since original delivery but you are also the original owner. Very few people can claim that with the earlier P&R era guns..

I bought a 5" 27 exactly like the one you picture back in 1977. It was in the BP blue box and S&W had just raised the retail price to a whooping $187. Almost didn't buy it but today it sits well maintained in a box covered with drool marks from people who have tried to talk me out of it....

If you ever consider parting with any of your NIB guns keep me in mind...

Here's mine with a pair of Keith Brown magnas & a Heiser holster.The guy I bought the holster from made an extension with a male & female snap so he could also use the holster with target stocks.

It's the age old question of shoot or not shoot and some of us like to keep a few virgins around just knowing the fact they have never been fired. Most of us who do that have enough S&W revolvers in every caliber that we have shooters to take to the range and enjoy.

It's the age old question of shoot or not shoot and some of us like to keep a few virgins around just knowing the fact they have never been fired. Most of us who do that have enough S&W revolvers in every caliber that we have shooters to take to the range and enjoy.[/QUOTE]

Fyimo, oh, I understand your point, just disagree in a very friendly way. Just as I have some friends who will not take their fine rifles and shotguns to the field (and have the means to endure any damage w/ replacements), my good stuff does what it was meant to do.

I also keep my Bullitt Mustang in the garage and I take good care of it, but it sure gets driven.

I'm almost ashamed to post these pictures after looking at these others, but the guns are nice.

357 Magnum from 1954



27-2 from 1978

Not a thing wrong with your pictures, CajunBass.... Love to see everyone's handgun treasures. Lotsa proud S&W owners here...... Looks like you may have an unusual Baughman front sight blade on the beautiful 357 Magnum. Maybe you could give us a little history on it.....

Thanks Terry, but sorry, I don't know any history on it. I picked it up a couple of years ago just like that. It had the original box with it, but nothing else. I've never bothered to letter it.

You have a beautiful model 27-2. I also agree that the 5" is the best balanced, and natural to shoot.
