While I was waitin for the owner of the shop to get his arse to the post office this mornin I spied with my little eye a really purty wheel gun sittin on the counter. I found it was a S&W 627.
Love at first drool! Eight cylinders full of .357magnum power, a sweet wood carved grip set, adjustable rear sights, single/double, stainless steel, slabbed barrel... :heart: :heart:

Simply.....way to expensive for me...$980 out the door. :neutral: :cry:

Nice wheelie
A friend of mine is trying to get one of those Calico pistols.
A more useless thing I've never seen, but I'd still like to have one.
I told him to let me know if he wants to sell it..........

While I like Smiths, in the .357 wheel gun I MUCH prefer the GP100. So much so that I own two of them.
I think I remember mentioning that when I completed the trigger
job on my regular gp100, I took it out to test. There was a guy there that had a 627 that had (as he described it) a $500 trigger job, as
he did competitive shooting. We exchanged guns. His comment... "I didn't know a Ruger had this nice a trigger, it's as soft as mine".
Even many of the Smith owners admit that the gp100 is a stronger design... "the tank!".

Now, the GP match champion has all that work already done, and for hundreds less. go watch this...
Halfway down the page is a video describing what they do in the custom shop, to the gp100 match models.

Found this one for $719 new and you can probably get cheaper.

Slurp, drool, drool!

I've want one, I love 8 shot .357's. I have a Taurus 608 that my son bought for me, but it ain't no S&W or Ruger, not by a long stretch. The gun is pretty decent looking, and I like the ported barrel too. But the trigger is horrible, the action sounds like someone dropping a bunch of aluminum cans on the ground, and it feels about as bad as it sounds. And it doesn't lock up tight, never did, though it is a bit better since I've worked on it, though I'm limited to the degree of it being a Taurus. Thing is, if it was a Ruger or a S&W, I could just rework or rebuild it, and have a decent piece to shoot. But because Taurus won't allow anyone to make or sell parts, not even springs or retainers, I'm stuck having to rely on them for repair / work, which they would just tell me it's functioning fine anyway. If I can ever find someone to buy it, I plan to put the money toward another Smith or a Ruger, but I will NEVER, EVER own another Taurus anything.

I'd spend a grand for a S&W, and definitely something like that one. Does a grand get one with a ported barrel?

I've found that in some cases the Taurus revolvers are very similar to S&W and some of the springs and such will interchange. I want one of the 8 shot revolvers.

I didn't see on the web site if a ported barrel was even available.

Who can tell me what they call the little circle polishing on the sides of the hammer and trigger?

Me believes it's called just that- swirl polishing :hmmm:
And yes, but doesn't your buddy Mahan know, he is a engineer machinist die maker metal worker type after all. :dunno:

I saw a video once of a guy doing it, flat rubber scuff pad in a drill press, lowered to make a circle, the metal moved then lowered to make a circle again. Tedious slow and painstaking. Usually done on a CNC that has the time and patience I would think.

Got it! The process is called "Jeweling". Some good videos on YouTube on how to do it.
