    the grips are....interesting.

    call me oldschool. i think i'd prefer the .357 version (ease of finding .38sp brass, especially compared to the rather pricey .38super)

    a 627's been on my list for a while. perhaps when i have more time to *play*

    It would look better in a full-flap holster.[rolleyes]

    Sorry. That sucks worse than a Hoover.

    I'm just old school. If I wanted a 27, I'd get this:

    Change the grips and you have one awesome gun. Great for competition.

    I believe it was created as a competition piece and no one is suggesting it for CCW. Still, I'll wait until they release the one with orange and black grips.

    The 627-4 in .38 Super is on the approved roster. If this is a 'dash-four' it's good to go, right?

    I want one. If anybody wants the grips, PM me.

    jairaidio,
    I owned one from the original production run sveral years ago and sold it because the only moonclips available at that time were the $7 each Hearthco. Since then Ranch Products has made moonclips for the 8x38 Super at $75 per 100 and I purchased one from the newer production run.
    The pricipal use of this gun is for the competition shooters who want to absolutely minimize reload time. The shorter 38 Super case supposedly speed up reloads over the longer 38 Special case and does not deal with the potential lack of accuracy when using the 38 Short Colt case. The moonclips for the 38 Super cartridge are also a bit thicker and stiffer which does speed up relaods.
    I shoot both the 627 and 686 in 38 Super. Howver, the speed of reloads is not the limiting factor in my performance.

    TonyT, Thanks for that little bit of info. I have to admit, it is colorful, the more I look the more I like.

    The .38 Super in a revolver is the answer to a question no one asked.
    And the grips are, well, flamboyant.

    A lot of people asked for a .38 super revolver. They know what the benefit is. That's why SW built one.
