I've decided my next gun purchase will be a #170245, Model 327, Performance Center, 2" barrel, .357 mag., 8 rnd. revolver. The problem is, I can't seem to locate one for sale. All my local gun shops say they are out of stock. My dilemma is that the S&W web site doesn't even show that model in any product category so I wonder if it's been discontinued. None of the revolvers in the Night Guard series are shown with a 2" barrel or cocobollo grips. One shop is willing to order one with a substantial deposit but would not say when I could expect it to come. Does any one know if S&W still makes this gun or if any one has one for sale? I suppose I could just get the Night Guard with the 2-1/2" barrel but it seems to me it was longer and heavier than the 2" barrel version of the same name. I'm kind of confused.
