I recently read a review of the "Classic" Model 27. The gun'riter brought along an old Model 27, a 27-2 I believe. The new gun shot tighter groups than the old gun.

However, I'd like to know how well the Classics will fare after three decades of use. My 27-2 is tight and smooth, has a case hardened hammer & trigger, and does not have a hole in the side. I'll be damned if I buy a reproduction for what S&W is charging for these things...
I like the Model 28-2, as well:S&W Classic reissues - Revolver Handguns This one was made in 1966.

I don't have to tout S&W's old guns - just look at Hammerdown's photos.

I have the model 19 and like it a lot. When the time comes, will have it reblued in the original fashion. After that I will have a near new gun that can never be purchased new!!

The only way I will buy a S&W with a lock...if I can buy it and re-sell it for a bit of profit.

The only "Classic" without a lock is the M-40. It is being sold without a lock because it's design has an grip safety.

I own a 629-5 "Classic". No lock on it.

But if you look close, you can see the lock on my 329PD.

I got a Ruger with an internal lock. All I did was unlock it, re-install the grips and throw away the key. Can you not do that with Smiths? Mine are older. Whats the big deal?

They don't make things like they used to....track down an old one and buy what you really want. I know that's what I do and I've never been disappointed. There have been changes made to the "classic" models. I love old S&W revolvers...go back 25-30 years and you start to see revolver gold.

Default S&W Model 24 Classic

I've had a model 24 S&W Classic for a couple on months. 44 Special revolvers are dificult to find at best. I bought it to shoot, not admire.
It's a duplicate of the 1950 target model. What a joy.

PS: I also have a Lipsy's Ruger Blackhawk Flattop (44 Special).

Hammerdown, those are stunning. I think there is nothing like the earlier Smith & Wessons when it comes to fit and finish. I do like the case hardened receivers on some of the newer ones though, very attractive.

I hate you, Hammerdown. You've got the coolest toys. There's nothing like those old blued Smiths with wood stock.
