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

What do those usually go for?
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.

GOOD? You should be arrested :eek: :D
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

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.
