    Looking for Information on S&W Model 327 2'' Barrel Revolver

    I am considering the new S&W Model 327 2" barrel revolver for concealed carry. Does anyone have any experience with this gun?

    I am particularly interested in how well it would conceal OWB under a loose fitting T shirt. Also how is the recoil shooting both 38sp. and 357 mag.

    I am interested in considering this revolver because of the 8 round capacity and because if will shoot 357 mag. I currently have a 642, which is only 38sp. and has 5 round capacity.

    Thanks.

    I bought one a couple of weeks ago and I love it. I carry it in a Galco high ride holster at the 2:30 or 3:00 position with a T-shirt over it and then a unbuttoned print shirt over that and I am always amazed at how such a large revolver disappears. I have put 2 hundred rounds through it so far, mixing 38sp., 38sp.+P and 357 mag,you can really feel the step up between the three but I find the 357 mag even with the short barrel a pleasure to shoot and the and the recoil is very manageable.Also the revolver is very accurate for a snub nose. If you buy it I don't think you'll have any regrets

    My mother carries one. She has no problem shooting anything with it and really likes it. I don't think you'll have any regrets.

    Greetings Ron,

    What happened to the Kimber Ultra? Are you changing EDC's?

    Hi Ken,

    Not at all. Love my Kimber, and it remains my primary EDC. Like a lot of us, just looking to buy another gun that I can carry when the mood strikes. I also like revolvers.
