I owned one! A 5" bbl. Magna stocks. 98% finish. No box or papers. Needed some timing adjustment - got a little lead splash upon firing.BUT, she was in the safe when it was stolen...:- (Thanks for the memories!
Sorry to hear that:( and they never did find any that were stolen?
Nope. None of the firearms, the credit cards, birth certificate, nothing.I suspect the Fort Knox safe is in Mexico, still unopened.(I still have the handle and dial they pried off!):- )
I have a much later scion of the same line, a barely pre-Bangor Punta 27-2.I think the blued 3.5" N-frame .357 is one of the nicest things S&W has ever done for humanity.
“I think the blued 3.5" N-frame .357 is one of the nicest things S&W has ever done for humanity.”Great line! I’ve seen your S&W and it’s a beauty too. The 27-2 was the zenith of the N-frame 357 design. It still had the desirable features like the pinned barrel and recessed cylinders together with the later design revisions that made it a better tool. If you ever had an S&W ejector rod back out on you at the wrong time you know what I mean. The Smith 3 ½ 357 is my favorite revolver ever. I’ve owned several over the years. I must be getting old, I remember nearly 20 years ago when almost nobody wanted them, now it seems like everyone does.
Wow! That is axthing of beauty. Is it an heirloom or something you found along the way?
Only found it a few years ago. Had to sell a few guns to get it.
"Only found it a few years ago. Had to sell a few guns to get it."Heh. Yeah, they're startin' to want real money for prewar Magnums. :)
