Anyone ever tried one? I like the unique look of it, and the 8 round capacity makes a good case for this wheelgun. Any opinions appreciated!

I have a 627 and love it. It's very accurate and the trigger is good for a factory revolver. It's a 'shooter' however and not really practical for too much else. I don't even have any leather for mine. It goes from the safe to the case and back to the safe.

If you dont mind me asking, how much did you pay for it?

Slimbo,
I love the concept and purchased the 27th 8 shot model 627 back in 1997. I have been shooting it and others ever since.

The moon clips make loading a snap, the firearms are very accurate. They have been offered in many configurations over the past 9 years varying barrel length, finish, construction and options.

One of the most recent additions to the 8 shot family of 357 magnum wheel guns is the Scandium framed, 2" barreled model 327 carry revolver.

That's a helluva collection, colt_saa. What kind of grip is that on the top left?

I love my 627. It's going off to C&S for some fixed tritium sights, but other than that, it's the perfect nightstand gun. Fun at the range as well, since it sops up so much of the recoil.

I have a pair of 627's that are slightly different. One says" .357 mag 8 times " on the side of the barrel and the other says " .357 V-8 ". The V-8 model has a removeable comp. I may have got hosed but I gave right at $880 for the V-8 and $800 for the regular one.

Thanks for the kind words Tomislav.

You will notice that the one in the uppler left is also wearing adjustable Tritium sights. Those are Hogue grips made from Goncalvo Alves wood. I order them without the finger grooves (that do not fit my hand) and I have added the white line spacer and contrasting butt cap. I have that configuration on a dozen or so S&Ws and like it. It is one of my favorite grip designs.

Here are a few more examples of the round butt. The wood's color does vary.

They look just as good on the square butt frames. The last one is Kingwood.
