    I picked this revolver up yesterday from a guy selling his Father's estate. The kid was a real anti-gunner and wanted whatever he could for his Pop's couple of firearms. Sad deal there.... anyway, I offered him my "Start" price of $400 on it and he never batted an eye. Cash only. I think I did pretty good. It looks like it has been fired very little if at all. Any thoughts fellas?

    Model 27-9 with the 6-1/2" barrel in .357Magnum

    I would imagine his father is rolling over in his grave. Very nice purchase.

    I have no idea. I actually went to the sale looking for lawn tools. I just threw that price out there figurin' I'd go $500 and walk away if he said "no". I was pretty shocked he took my first offer on it. If anyone knows what these go for, I'd appreciate hearing it. Thanks, fellas.

    New that one sells for $800+. Nice deal for $400. I do not care for the new Smith revolvers with the MIM parts and lock above the cylinder release, but half price? Steal.

    They stopped arresting me a long time ago after they figured out I like fried bologna and eggs jail food and it got me out of mowing the yard at home. I didn't make a clear shot out of it, I got caught trying to shove it in the gun safe under the radar screen by the Stage Boss. I'm not as quick as I used to be doing that.

    I got grounded for two weeks.....again. :p

    Naaa...I plan on being in jail for sumthin' pretty soon...I'm ready for some bologna and eggs and the Stage Boss says it stinks up her kitchen too much to make at home. I'd better call them and make a reservation.

    Yes...I too wasn't pleased to see the gun manf. turn to MIM parts, they have a love/hate following but, I think it was an economical move on the maker's to stay competitive. It's quite a process mixing metal powder with resin and injecting it into a part mold than cooking the resins out at high heat. I guess time will tell as to how these new methods holds up. I'm going to run quite a few rounds thru this one and see if it keeps up with some of my old school S&W's.

    It's an unusual configuration for a 27. They are usually blue instead of nickel and this one has target sights, hammer and trigger. It also has "classic" diamond grips. I wonder if it's something from the Custom or Classic line.

    At any rate it's good that it found a good home.
