Got a chance to buy a S & W Model 27 in .38 cal. Apears to Stainless Steel finish in Great shape for $350.00.
I wanted to know if this is a fair price. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.

Not stainless but nickle.
That is a fair price not bargin but fair.
You didn't give the barrel length and the ser# if it is pre war worth maybe double.
If it has a S or N serial prefix hen it is post war

About 4 inch barrel and its not a War era gun. Don't have the gun to get serial #. But your est. helps me.
I'm looking for a quality pistol for no more than 400.00 and just shopping right now. Revolver would be nice but would want a S & W.

4" the length I perfer and probably the most commom one.
My Smith 27 is the bottom one in my sig.
If you would like a 357 in a smaller frame look at a model 19 (K frame the 27 is the heavier N frame.
That said the 19 shouldn't have a steady diet of 357's.
The Ruger GP 100 and Security 6 are nearly as good as the Smith's but the Smiths have a better triggger

Here's what the Blue Book says:
98% - $375
95% - $300
90% - $220
80% - $205
Add $28 for white outline rear sight.
Add 10% for pinned barrel and recessed cylinder.
He said his model 27 was in .38. Didn't it only come in .357?
Also, in this area, you can't touch a model 27 for less then $400. I haven't seen one at a gun show for less then $450 in a long time.
They are great old guns.

That would be right
Now it's the 627 Stainless
The is 28 same as 27 but lesser finish.
