When did you pick this up?

virulosity 09-25-2007 12:47 PM

This is the first handgun I ever had, just never took any pics of it.

tmuller 09-25-2007 4:12 PM

Aaawww come on! You can see the dirt on it and everything.

MrTuffPaws 09-25-2007 6:47 PM

Ya know. Never having handled a Python or an Anaconda, how does the cylinder release work. Do you hook it with your thumb and pull it away from the cylinder?

Oh yeah. Nice pic

virulosity 09-25-2007 7:47 PM

Yeah you pull towards yourself

It's probably going to be collectable in a little bit when they discontinue it.

Personally I think a nice red dot like a Bushnell Holo Sight on a revolver is kick-***. I wish more wheel guns came with top rails.

Shameless plug... 1967 Colt Python, factory nickel finish. For sale, check the sale forum.

I also have a like-new 4-inch Python in Royal Blue (not for sale) from 1978, like-new condition, but it's still in the 10-day waiting period so I don't have it in my possession yet :(

Rails are removable for all those picatinny hating old fogies. Too me with a light .... its the best thing since sliced bread. Its my new pillow case gun :D

The Performance center railed revolver was originally designed for SWAT entry team members who carry the "body bunker" shields. When shooting a semi auto the slide frequently smacks the shield and causes a FTF so revolvers are still frequently carried by these team members. With the 8 round cylinder and rails for lights these are the "go-to" guns for many of them. Sweet gun for its intended purpose.

Props to the performance center toys!

Like the other poster, I kinda chuckled too when I saw S&W's new tactical revolver...

... then I thought about it a little more.

No doubt about it, that's one hell of a Performance Center S&W. I'm sure that it has a trigger better than 99.8% of all the other pictured guns in every thread on CalGuns.

I don't know if it will be adopted by the SWAT teams that it was intended for, but it seems to me that gun is a number one primo home defense cannon. It's got it all, as I see it, in order of importance:

1. Revolver reliability
2. .357 Magnum
3. S&W-made
4. Performance Center craftsmanship
5. 8-round capacity in moon clips
6. Streamlight illumination, even if it's not very easy to use effectively.
7. Top rail (I think I'd mountthe tiny Zeiss breadbox red-dot on it)

Questionable feature:

8. Hammer lock security, but I won't argue for or against it.

Titanium cylinder and barrel shroud.
Aluminim alloyed with Scandium for the frame.
The frame is anodized black to protect against oxidation.
The Titanium does not easily oxidize so it's left unfinished.

The main thing to know is that this gun is very lightweight for an 8 shot N-frame 357.
The lightweight cylinder helps you get a lighter doube action trigger.
I bought this to get into competetive revolver shooting.

38 short colt cases with 200gr bullets loaded to about 650fps will make minor power factor and barely recoil more than a 22. :)

Amen ..... Thats why I bought it. I also do not like the lock .... but what can you do as far as new revolvers .... buy a taurus .... no thanks. I have been searching the www for a while to find a case where a S&W lock engaged without the key .... and haven't really found a true proven case yet.

I've handled both the 327TRR8 and the quite-similar 327M&P. You don't need to have all those rails mounted, and the the gun has a fairly 'normal' profile.

Wonderful balance, wonderful trigger, 8 shots x 357.

Sorry, Randall, but to me it certainly looks far better than those 2-tone guns with different-colored cylinder (very 'pimp' appearance to me).

But I wish the hell they'd make a 627 wheelgun in regular production and not from the Perf. Center - hate that funky wedge-angled bbl. S&W's PC always has to mess up something even though the underlying performance/feel is there.

Just make me an 8-shot N-frame 627 in 357 with 5" full underlug bbl and I'll be happy. (Of course, it should have an unfluted cylinder. :) )

Yeah thats what I wanted too. I was going to just say forget it and get a 686 6" 7-shot but the N frame suits my hand better.

I test drove both 327s b4 buying and I felt with a scandium framed gun, It had a nicer balance with a steel cylinder rather than a titanium.

Steel cylinder gives a heavier double action trigger due to the extra weight you have to move while pulling the trigger.
That's why I went for the titanium cylindered version.
I could care less for the two-tone either, but I'm not going to the trouble of black-oxiding the cylinder and shroud just to make it match.

I own guns to shoot, not to worry about how they look.

I've always wanted to see a picture of one of these fired in a low light environment. I wonder if it will overexpose the image with all the powder burning outside the barrel? It would be cool to see.

There's a guy on here with the 500 4" barrel that has a picture like that. It's pretty cool. This one would probably have more since it's only a 2 3/4" barrel :eek:
