Or at least my Grail gun. I have wanted a 3.5 inch model 27 for quite some time. A half hour ago I successfully won the auction on a Nickel plated model 27, no dash shipped in the 1960-61 time frame. Here are some of the auction pictures to hold us over until I get it. The stocks have been sanded down at the top rear for some reason, but it looks pretty good other than that to me. Managed to not get too caught up in the auction and only went $10 over what I budgeted. Had the top bid for 3 or 4 days then this afternoon someone came in who must have wanted it. With 7 minutes to go he threw out another bid and reset the clock but it was his last gasp

Congratulations mate welcome to the 27 club.

I have been looking at them for 6 months. At more than one point I thought, if not a model 27, then what? I honestly could not come up with anything. I looked a snub nosed 19's an 66's, 3 inch model 13's and 65's, 4 inch 28's and 3 inch 625's. The 3 inch 625's were very tempting but just didn't quite do it for me. It had the be the 3.5 inch model 27. Nothing else was gonna scratch that itch.

Nice.... I wonder if someone altered those grips to fit on a K-Frame? That's very similar to the look you get when K-Frame grips are put on an N-Frame.
If you look at the angled line running down through the medallion, especially on the left grip you can tell it has been recontoured. That line should pass behind the medallion, not through it.

That's the way a grail quest should end. Can't wait for a range report.

Thank you for sharing your search. I enjoyed it.

Your list of lesser temptations could get me in trouble though.
If I could have purchased 2 of the lesser temptations for the price of 1 model 27, it would have been even more tempting. These days a nice 2.5" model 19 is almost as much as the 27 and the 3 inch 13 or 65 isn't far behind, A 3 inch model 625 will be as much or more than the 3.5 inch 27

I am cheap, so I opted to send a cashiers check instead of paying an additional 3% credit card fee. Also, I have a thing about purchasing a firearm with a credit card. I have never done it. As a result, the gun won't ship until they get the check. It will probably Thursday before it ships, and if I had payed by card there is a good chance I would have gotten it by then. I will probably be cursing my decision by then. I can be patient, but there are limits
