    An original recessed cylinder Model 27 may be the finest revolver ever made.

    Fortunately I own a M 27 with 3.5 inch barrel bought new in 1973. Carried it daily for about 14 months. In recent years mainly gets used on snakes on our lease prior to the opening of hunting season.

    Prior to the shift to semi-autos the service firearm of the Wa St Patrol was a Model 28 357. a lot of troopers figured they were getting the short end of that trade.

    Good for you. I like the older models as well with the screwed in and pinned barrels.

    Back in the day, I carried a 6" model 28 for my duty gun. Still have it. Great finds!
