Default 627 Performance Center w/ Optics!

This forum needs more threads on revolvers! Here are some photos of my 627 Performance Center with the new Docter sight added. I used the J Point mount that fits the factory S&W rear sight and used the J Point adapter shim to mate the Docter sight with the J Point mount. I'm very pleased wit this sight. Very bright, very crisp, and very clear. It was easy to mount and get sighted in. It's so accurate that it's almost unfair....almost! Don't pay attention to the Goodyear grips. I've got the gun set up to run full house .357 loads for hunting this fall and the rubbers definitely help with the recoil.

That's one good looking Smith!

So..........when are you going to start making revolver stocks?

Thanks Cane.

I will have to defer to Ahrend's for the revolver grips. They have the CNC equipment necessary. While their wood selection is pretty limited, they make a great fitting set of grips. And they will also allow you to send them your own wood, though it still costs the same for a set of grips. I think I will send them my wood when I'm ready for the 627. Just have to decide on a style.

That is one of the best looking Smiths I've seen in a long time! Now I've got to get a Smith too .

I definitely recommend the PC guns. They are the only S&W I would buy made after 1980. Mine is extremely high quality and has a beautiful trigger and smooth action.

Can anyone join this party?

Just being nosey. Did you do anything to the finish of your gun? It looks a like it's shinier than mine.
While not too glamorous, I think the rubber grips work really well.

I gave the gun a nice polishing with some Flitz. I can't stand a beadblasted stainless. I much prefer my stainless to shine like nickel. But I've got enough shiny guns so I didn't go all out on this one. I just polished it enough to get rid of the dull finish. Just enough to give the seasoned eye something to notice!

One thing you might notice is some scorch marks on the front outside edge of the cylinder. That's what 8.5 grains of Power Pistol will do behind a 158gr JHP. I'm hoping I can polish those marks out after deer season.

I used a DW 15-2 8" barrel for over 20 years for hunting pigs with a old red dot on it. You are right about being almost unfair. But shure helps older eyes to hit a target in a hurry. Oh I like the hogue soft rubber grips for controlling 180gr loads i used.

Good look'n revolver you have there.

I'm using a 158 grain Montana Gold JHP round pushed by the max recommended charge of 8.5gr of Power Pistol. I don't have a chrono, but I'd say it's moving around 1100fps. I only plan on using the gun as a secondary option and I wouldn't take a shot much further than about 35 or 40 yards. Effective range is debatable, but I feel very confident that it will get the job done at any range less than 40 yards.
