    Smith and Wesson Model 27-2

    What might you pay for it in your neck of the woods used? I saw one today for $515 approximately and it didn't seem like a bad price, but I don't have the money right now, sadly. I wish I did because I'm sure someone out there will grab it very soon.

    It's a monster gun! I've held the SP101 and the S&W 686 and they were average size to me, but the 27 is a huge gun!

    You bet it is - it's an N-frame, the biggest size S&W made until the .500 magnum came along. The 686 is an L frame, just a little bigger really than the K.

    If it's a clean gun without rust and just normal wear (i.e., doesn't look like it's been used to hammer fence posts), that's a pretty reasonable price.

    Thanks. I still want a 686 but even used they seem to all be over 600 dollars.

    Low 500 for this beauty? I'll go for it all day. I bought from the seller previously and he seems to only take in good stuff. I just wish I had the money, I would push my 9mm/.22 wants back for it in a heartbeat if I had the money.

    I bought my Model 28 a long time ago ... when the "wonder nines" were coming on the scene. The Model 28 was the workingman's gun. The local cop on the beat who wanted a .357, at a working man's salary. Mine has more holster wear than use. Mine seems to prefer lead so I chamber the " FBI Load" ... 158 grn lead, SJHP @ + P velocities.

    What would you sell your 28 at if you were to sell it? I may spring for a 28 if it's much cheaper.

    The S&W Model 27 was the Cadillac whereas the Model 28 (Highway Patrolman) was the Chevy. The Model 27 has a much prettier finish than the Model 28 but both are some of the finest examples of revolvers made by Smith & Wesson. Given the choice I would take the 27 instead of the 28 just for the appearance.

    The N-framed M-27 was the mac-daddy until the advent of the X-framed .500 Mag and Governor. Enjoy....I love my 27 almost as much as Dirty Harry!

    I would rather the 27 as well, but if I find a much cheaper 28 i'll go with it.

    It makes me want to put the 27 on layaway!

    Smith & Wesson revolvers are hot right now. In a local gun auction in my area 2 weeks ago, a S&W 27-2 sold for a healthy $725. So if you can grab this one at 500 and change...Do it! There were quite a few Smith revolvers at this auction and they went for impressive prices. A nice large N frame in .41 mag from 1981 sold for a stunning $2050. Check the page for Horst Auctions in Ephrata Pa. for the results of the Sept 8th gun auction. I think you would be surprised at what these revolvers sold for.
