Hopefully this question is not a nuisance. I am new to this forum and will soon purchase my first revolver. I have enjoyed shooting for years, but own only semi-auto pistols. My 1911 is my favorite. I like the way it feels in my hands. I like the way it looks. I like its comfortable recoil. For a revolver, I have decided I will purchase a 627 pro or a used model 27 nickel plated. I like the look of nickel or stainless with wood grips. I believe the 357 is the right round for me. I've held the 627 and really like the feel of it in my hand. And I think the weight and N frame will make it more comfortable to shoot. This isn't for carry purposes. It will be something I enjoy taking into the desert and shooting every now and then. With that in mind - Are there any specific factors that would favor either the 627 or an older 27? Thanks.
