Smith & Wesson makes it possible for you to own a piece of history-in-the-making with these Classic revolvers. Originally known as the Registered Magnum, the Model 27 was the original .357 magnum revolver. Built on Smith & Wesson's large N-Frame, the Model 27 is noted for its durability and reliability. The feature that really sets the Model 27 apart from other N-Frames is the fine checkering along the topstrap and barrel rib, done to reduce glare. This modern production revolver features a ramped front sight, an adjustable rear sight, and wooden grips and comes with the original factory hard case. Its wood, metal, and bore are all in very good condition.
