    Reading on this subforum about the virtues of wheel guns infected me with an irrational need to get a quality revolver. Here she is, a 1975-76 Model 27-2--I hold each of you personally responsible:D

    I just picked up a 1975-76 Smith 27-2 myself. I must warn you; you now have addiction for which there is no cure.

    I doubt if I had anything to do with it ....but if I did, you can thank me later.

    Nice gun, I had a mod 27 6" once upon a time.

    Bushmaster,

    One would bet that you got a 27 based on the thought "if I have just ONE wheelgun just what would it be?"

    Well let me tell you with no equivocation...You are screwed.

    Better clear out space in the safe for the flood of wheelguns that you will surely acquire.

    Beautiful gun. She will be your downfall.

    There is just something about revolvers (especially good revolvers) that are really appealing. You won't regret buying that revolver unless you paid way too much for it. Even then, you probably won't regret it because the pricing is part of the game and it is fun to play the game.

    Welcome to the good side of handgunning. There's nothing made in Austria or designed in the year 1911 that can measure up.

    Since you won't be stooped over searching the ground for brass...your butt-crack tan will fade.

    Thanks Guys !!

    i want to the Dr. today for a slight case of being sick and while i was waiting for my perscription, i went to a local gunshop to browse some used Smiths. i told him i was looking for a 4 inch gun. perferably a model 27 or 28. he said no 27s but i have 2 28s. he said $400 each one had factory stocks and 1 Pachmyrs. i was in for $400. then he said either one he can let go for $350. i couldnt sign the paperwork fast enough. here she is.. my 28-2 Highway Patrolman. great shape. very very little holster wear, but that just says that this N frame was up and down the interstate a few times.

    i was looking at a brand new N Frame, but couldnt justify the price with the hole on the side. this 28 feels great and i cant wait to shoot it. i can get 3 of these for the price of a new one. if i had the cash i probablly would have gotten the other one too, but now i have a great quality piece and freed up some cash to get a truckload of ammo.

    I'm not S&W guy, matter of fact I've never owned a revolver made by them....However, that is one sharp looking gun.

    Bushmaster;
    Wow you really jumped in!
    That's like saying. I think I'll get some art...
    ... and buying an original Picasso.

    Good luck. You are sunk.
