Talking Revolver Pics

I thought there was a Wheel Gun pics thread but I searched and didn't find it so here goes:
Colt Python .357 Magnum

Mods: Feel free to addend this thread into a post of an existing one if I missed it.

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

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.

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.

And please make it steel. I'm not a huge fan of the lightweight materials. I really wish they'd bring back the 'bloodwork' 627 - aka the "ultimate defensive revolver". 8x .357, all steel, unfluted cylinder, and 2.5 in barrel. And eagle boot grips.

Awesome gun and they only made ~250. :/

It has many advantages that pistols don't have plus the rails it has. At 8 smokin rounds, this is formidable. .357 mag is an awesome round. I just got rid of a .22LR Ruger that weighs 6 more oz more than the TRR8. Different handguns have their uses and I will mix it up and own a TRR8 soon.

Mom is in fact an L-frame (stronger/beefier than the K).

Great family shot!

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.
