If you can make a 4" you can make 3" or 5".

I don't think you'll see many 5" revolvers because of how the gun game rules are. Hunters will go over 6" for that purpose and a 5" isn't easy for most to conceal. Now 3" revolvers are fun and I have more than a couple. I like 'em. The 4" is nice as well but I have only 2 of those. They work well for me in an all around role of carry and target shooting. I have taken one hunting with me, but didn't take any game with it.

Euc,

We have a 5", M27, P&R, TH & TT, nickel plated at the shop.
Don't recall price right now, but can check Monday if you're so inclined.

Tiime to bring out my shorter M27-2 pic :smilez: Certainly IMO on an N frame 5" just seems so, well - ''right'' - the balance, everything.

I guess from production POV the 4" fits the niche of what many consider the ''ideal'' length. Certainly I do myself like to see three inchers too - usually a very nice carry option. On reflection tho, thinking of my once carry M28-2 - that was 4" and also felt pretty ''right''.

I think I should have every revo made, in 3", 4", 5" and 6" - just for completeness' sake :18:

Can't forget my Ruger GP-100 3" SS .357. IMHO, it has perfect balance, can shoot hot loads all day and ask for more and is wickedly accurate!

Pair of my favorite carry guns are 36's with the heavy 3" bbl, that I had shrouds installed on,, for years on the job I carried a 3 1/2" 27, in a shoulder holster and a 5" on the hip.. in discussions with Col.Askins and Mr.Jordan they both told me they thought the 5" was the best damn carry lenght for duty revolvers...

Mr. Bryce loved the 3 1/2" 27 and perfered it to all others

P95 - that's a sweet M27!

One of the gunrags reviewed a limited edition 686 "Stocking Dealer Special" with a 5in. short underlug barrel that looked nice as well.
