    Broken yoke on a model 27

    My M-27 that I bought new in 1989 has a broken yoke. The tube that the cylinder rides in broke off from the frame on the yoke. I have fired 15,000 rounds through it, mostly .38 Specials. It sports a 8 3/8" barrel. Has anyone else had this happen? I have larger caliber S & W N frame revolvers; kind of surprising that the M-27 woudl be the one that has a broken yoke.

    Mine are older than yours and no issues. I don’t know the round counts but a lot and also a lot of .357 mags. Sometimes things just break?

    Never seen one break. Seen a few bent and warped yokes but either way it is an easy fix

    The pistol is back at S & W....not certain what will happen next, but I remain optimistic that they will replace the yoke and it'll be as good as new.

    I've never heard of anyone breaking a Model 27 yoke, a few bent from boneheads slamming them shut but no broken ones. I think S&W will fix it under warranty.

    As the revolver has had a lot of shots through it, maybe they'll rebuild it as well...maybe even reblue it???

    Probably, but not for free. They guarantee against breakage, not wear.
