I picked up a m27-2 in nickel last week.
I'm not a fan of shiny, but thought I should try one at least.
It's far from new but not shabby either. The 4th edition dates it to 79 or 80.
I've spent some time already cleaning and polishing, but have a ways to go yet.
Heres a pic of my shiny orphan,

468266


So far my only complaint would be of whoever's owned it before.
The poor thing was dry as a bone, no oil , inside or out. At least I havent found any rust.
I'm hoping after I get polished up some more, then get a few rounds threw it.

I do have a question on the rear sight, I dont think it's a factory option.
I'll get a pic of it.

Beautiful gun!! The rear site is a bonus because I believe that Millett has gone out of business. I had one on a 686 Smith at one time and the range of adjustment on it was great.

That may be, I couldnt say.
It looks like after about 5 hours of elbow grease, lol.
It was the dirtiest gun I've bought so far.
I not sure why someone would treat such a nice revolver so badly.

I never cared for nickle finished guns, until I got my first one. There's something way cool about them. Even though I've stopped buying revolvers, given the right nickle finished version at a decent price I'd jump on it.
Enjoy the one you have.
