    I've wanted one of these since I was in my early twenties. It just feels perfect. For me it has the right weight, the right grip, the perfect balance.

    Now I need to round up some cash!! So it will have to wait 'till after El Paso!

    Ed could certainly do some amazing things with a pistol. I can only dream about ever being able to slice a playing card with a handgun.

    It's a model 27. Why wouldn't you want it? ;)

    A few years ago, I picked up a pre-27 with a 3.5 inch barrel on a trade. The gun was so beautiful & smooth I didn't even feel justified in holding it much less shooting it. The bluing was incredible - the best I've ever seen. I traded it to a collector in KY as I couldn't bear to have a real safe queen. The Model 27 to me is the finest .357 Magnum revolver ever produced - a real classic...

    The 27 is almost too pretty to shoot. I have a 4" 28 that is a real shooter. If you remind me I will be glad to bring it to El Paso.

    Dune,

    Glass picked up a Model 28 from a pawn shop here that is probable 95%. She looks like she has never been fired. I can’t tell you what she paid but I believe there might be a warrant for her arrest associated with her acquiring it. You can shoot her when you come to the M&G (the 28 not Glass).

    Scubie


    Here she is…

    I know why I wanted mine. They look real bad ***! :D Plus the frame is bigger than the 19 so you can run full size loads all the time without wearing the gun out. Plus its bad ***!;) However, I did trade it for a 1943 Garand. Don't even have that one anymore.:(

    A 4" N frame what a revolver is supposed to look like. And they are a joy to shoot too.
