Gun Show – Smith & Wesson 27-7

Produced in very limited quantities in 2000, the Smith & Wesson Model 27-7 has several features that distinguish it from other Model 27 revolvers made before or since. The 27-7 was special ordered from S&W by the sporting goods distributor Bangers. Each revolver was custom built by the S&W Performance Center (PC) and wears their emblem instead of the normal Smith & Wesson logo. Each revolver was hand assembled and tuned, and delivered in a PC carry case. The 27-7 was limited to only 200 copies ever made, 100 each with 4-inch and 6.5 inch barrels. Produced in a special serial number range, all had a high polish blue finish, a round butt grip frame and square butt conversion target stocks. The Model 27-7 was the first 27 produced as an 8-shot capacity revolver and could be loaded conventionally or with special moon clips. The 27-7 also has the distinction of being the only 8-shot Model 27 ever made without the safety lock.

    1. They don’t come up for sale very often, the 4-inch guns especially. Keep looking, you’ll see one eventually.

    1. Ouch! I’ve been looking for a second 4-inch myself, for years, without any luck. I’ve bid on three 6-inchers on Gunbroker but they always go higher than I would pay.
