    S&W 627 - User Input Requested

    I am considering a S&W 627 which is a stainless, N frame, 8 hole, 4" barrel revolver, chambered in .357. I have searched and not found any references to this weapon. My question is do any of y'all have one and how do you like it? If you have one, do carry it, concealed or otherwise.

    I appreciate any input on this weapon.

    I had one . Great accurate gun, can take any 357 mag load. To big a gun in that caliber for cc.

    I've held one and its a gem for sure, although I can't imagine it working out all that well in a CC mode. Then again, I'm a medium frame dude anyway.

    It's heavier than the 44 which it shares a frame with. A 44 MG would be even lighter with it's tapered barrel.

    The other gun I was looking at was the 329PD which is about a pound lighter but holds 6 44 mag rounds. The cost of 44 mag rounds versus 357/38 and the extra 2 rounds are why I was looking at the 627.

    If you're going to carry it, I'd personally go with the lighter weight 329PD in .44 magnum. That 627 is a very heavy gun. As for capacity, if you can't solve your problem with 6 rounds of .44 magnum, the problem may not be solvable.

    The .44 magnum practice ammo is not much different in price than .357 magnum practice ammo, at least at my mail order vendor. I've been getting Blazer .44 magnum for about $19 for a box of 50:

    For daily Self Defense concealed carry

    ...personally I would opt for the slightly lighter S&W Stainless Steel Performance Center 627 PC .357 w/ the 2.5/8" barrel.

    But, the 4" is a mighty fine firearm - just sporting too much barrel on an everyday CC wheelie for my particular druthers.

    I have always liked my SD personal defense wheelies more to the snub.




    329PD in .44 magnum. <~~~& that's a decent choice also.

    I'm no wimp, but that 329 scares me. I just find that it kicks too hard. We kept one of the 627s under the cash register for a couple of weeks at the gunshop where I work. It was a foolproof gun for that purpose, and gave us the extra rounds. Somebody bought it for the right price a few weeks later or we'd still have it.
