Does that say .327 Magnum? If so, what's the story behind it?

.327 Federal Magnum, I assume. An awesome round that should be more popular, but because of limited availability of factory loaded ammo and firearms, isn't.

I've been looking at an extremely clean S&W 10-8 heavy barrel. Very tempted and may well buy it. I need to do some price research as I have no idea what is a decent price. But I like the revolver a lot. I also happen to be a total pushover when it comes to model 58's.

It's amazing how high in asking price a good, clean, pre-83 S&W revolver has on it nowadays, especially the K-Frames. Many are pushing a grand, particularly stainless snub nosed K-Frames. In five years, it might be the Python phenomenon all over again with K-Frame pre-83 snub nosed revolvers.

I have one that's like new. Not selling, though. I think I paid like $450 for it about five years ago.

I think I can do $400 out the door and the revolver is almost spotless. Only a very light drag line on the cylinder, no blue wear at the muzzle, etc.

A couple of sixguns that Alan built for me some time ago utilized Al Seigrist for the rebore. David Clements suggested him to me many years ago. Both were 38 WCF's, a S&W Highway Patrolman and an old Flattop Ruger Blackhawk.

Thanks Bob,

Yes, I now remember previous discussion of this project. It came out beautifully.

I bet it shoots as good as it looks.

Someone must be buying them, because the prices for the classic S & W revolvers ain't doing nothing but going up!

So far this year I have been lucky enough to find:

18-3
24-3 Lew Horton
624
686+
696
and a Ruger GP100 44 Spl.

So am certainly doing my part....


Have not been sitting on my hands, but you've still got me beat.

Last 1 1/2 - 2 yrs

27-2
25-5
625-2
625-6
15-4

Bumming the pawn shops today, found 2 very nice S&W semi-autos (3913 & a .40 cal), a sweet Super Redhawk in .41 magnum, and a primo low round count Security Six .357.


I am also doing my part. 2016 was a "banner" year for me, with 36 S&Ws revolvers added to my stable. And, the only one with the Kwikset key lock in the side of it, with cast hammer & trigger is this one:

It hurts a lot less than the BFR single action in .500 that I had!

It hurts less than the 329 PD also. I got a hairline wrist fracture shooting off six hot and heavy hard cast Magnum rounds from one once. Never again. It's a .44 Special as far as I'm concerned from now on.

I fired a friend's 500 about five years ago.

Two handguns that I what to get someday, one is a decent 1911. The other is one of those 8 shot Smth&wessons. R8 and I can't remember the other model...


Glocks remind me of an old German farm wife, kinda thick but will work night and day.

Back in Texas, for good!
well, I recently added a new El Paso Tanker holster, for a 5" .44mag

for some reason don't have a pic of my newest Revo, a Ruger .480 Bisley. It shoots quite nicely.
