TAKE A LOOK AT THE SMITH & WESSON 627

Taking a peek into the Guns.com Vault, a spiffy revolver caught my eye — none other than the Smith & Wesson 627 Model of 1989.

As the name implies, this wheelgun was released by Smith & Wesson in 1989, though the company continues to manufacture variations of the 627 today. Chambered in .357 Magnum, the Smith 627 packs a punch with a stainless steel design and weight of 3-pounds. Featuring a barrel measuring 5.5-inches.

The heft of the gun matches it heavy, double-action trigger nicely producing a solid revolver. Sporting adjustable rear sights and a 6-shot unfluted cylinder the revolver offers a rounded design with S&W Combat stocks. Built on Smith & Wesson’s tried and true revolver platform, it’s no wonder that the 627 has endured a long history with avid fans who enjoy taking this gun to the range.

The gun’s value has steadily increased with time seemingly pushing it into the hands of collectors looking for a Smith revolver to add to their collection. One look at the Smith & Wesson 627 Model of 1989 and you can’t help but think of the 80s with its rounded revolver look. If you’re a fan of the era, it’s one hard gun to pass up.

In 1996, Smith upped the ante introducing an 8-shot model of the 627. This flavor delivered a 2.625-inch barrel with an unfluted barrel. Opting for no muzzle brake or ports, the ’96 version provided a stainless steel design with a matte finish and wood grips.

You can find the Smith & Wesson 627 and all its variants at Guns.com, not to mention the ammo to go with it.
