POTD: 1977 S&W Model 27-2

    This beautiful photo was taken by HKG of his S&W Model 27-2 manufactured in 1977. The Model 27 has been a popular gun with consumers and law enforcement ever since its introduction almost 80 years ago in 1935. The ’27 was originally named the “Registered Magnum”, because it was chambered in Smith & Wesson’s new .357 Magnum cartridge, and later named the “.357 Magnum”. It was renamed Model 27 in 1957.

    In my mind at least, nothing says double-action-revolver like the S&W Model 27.
