    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:

    Model 27:

    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.
