    Very nice. I have a 27-2 that is butt ugly compared to the gun posted by the OP, but it is loved and a great shooter. As others have said, I wouldn't let this one get away from the family.

    That's a beautiful gun. Out of curiosity I was scrolling through Gunbroker to see what a gun like that would sell for. They have one, maybe not as nice as yours, in a cardboard box instead of a wood box, with a Buy Now price of $3k.

    From what I've seen, a standard wear 27-2 goes for around $850-$900. Original box, cleaning tools and papers about double the price for collectability. This has the original receipt from the store. It's never seen a holster. The only wear mark is the turn line on the cylinder. I bet the first box of 1977 cartridges are still in dad's safe with a couple of rounds left.

    If it needs to be sold and you are unwilling or unable to purchase it, $1500 minimum.
    I know there are folks here that would snatch it up.

    This is sound advice from a noted authority on pricing. Do not discount what he says.

    Get it appraised and sell it, for good $$$, meds and Drs. bills have to be paid, some young person might enjoy it having it in his/her safe, and the cycle starts again.

    $900 would be low based on your description. Like Sam says $1500 min.

    We did take some photos for your eye candy pleasure.

    Get it ... get it ... get it ... !!!

    You won't regret owning it if you'll use it, if you value it for its connection with your father. Only one opinion, but that's the finest .357 Magnum revolver on the planet in my view, more so than any of several famous high-dollar .357 Magnums that could be named.

    I place less value on the accessory items, but it's a sure bet that the real market does!

    I'm not expert enough to be certain that it's a five-inch Model 27 from a photograph. I need to polish up on my 5-inch Model 27 photo recognition capabilities. Here's a 6-inch that I have for comparison and also another N-Frame Smith & Wesson, a pre-war model that is a 5-inch gun. Lug length would be the same between these two Model 27s and the pre-war N-Frame.

    I agree that you should keep it in the family. They no longer make guns of that quality. It's simply irreplaceable.

    The pistol is an exact match to your 6". Although I believe the barrel is marked 5" and some fraction. 7/8ths? I'll check.
