Thumbs down Too expensive: S&W Model 632 Carry Comp Pro Series .327 Magnum

This just seems insanely expensive:

http://www.smith-wesson.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?catalogId=10001&storeId=10001&produ ctId=86957&langId=-1&isFirearm=Y

$980.00 for something I can used--in a different but equal caliber-- and with no ILS?

I'll wait till prices go down (if they do).

Or I'll pay $400.00 less and get the Ruger:

I agree, Smith & Wesson pricing on some of their new revolvers is hard to understand. And then they put an internal lock on the gun to add insult to injury.

I'd just buy a used, prelock S&W revolver in some normal caliber like .357 magnum or .38 special for half the price and make do with that.

Shelf prices are often below list for the S&W.

Depends on what you're gonna use it for. Plinking - you probably won't want to be shooting .327 anyway :P

The S&W piece looks like a nice carry gun in a compact package.

At a $980 MSRP, I know at least one store will probably initially list it at $833 if they follow their normal formula. However, I suspect that price will drop to $775 when it doesn't move quickly.

Sure, you can buy a Ruger and carry a larger, heavier revolver or you can buy the S&W and have a quality carry gun that doesn't pull your pants off.

Look at the ballistics of the .327 Magnum. It has the energy output of the .40 S&W with lighter recoil.

Yeah, the list on the PC Carry Comp 629 is much higher than the going rate on Gunbroker. I think I paid $200 less than MSRP on my Performance Center in 500S&W, and it was a special order item that only Lew Horton distributed. I would expect this non-PC gun to sell for much less than MSRP at any fair dealer or on gunbroker.com.

[red edit by me]

No.

Get rid of those old guns.

Arrange a PM to me, and we can negotiate a price that is fair to me.

Yeah, because S&W has never issued a recall on any of its guns... I distinclty remember buying a model 39 that was alter recalled due to a little issue of it going full auto sometimes when you activated the safety catch/ decocker...

Since they have some out with the SF frames, there really isn't a reason for the 45gap to exist. Even if they hadn't come out with the SF frames, there are plenty of 45 pistols out there with much better ergos.

The .327 fits a niche that really hasn't been filled. If you want a small pocket revolver your choices have been .38 or .357. Many people can't handle .357, especially in such a small frame and .38 isn't a monster of a cartridge. And either way you were limited to 5 shots. .327 gives you more power than a hot .38 without the recoil and muzzle blast of a .357. You also get one more round.

And this isn't considering the 3 other calibers you can shoot out of this pistol. Its a damn versatile gun going all the way from really light plinking to serious defensive loads.

About 1969? That's why they came out with the 39-2 that had the fixed safety/ decoker lever. Mine went back for the factory recall/ fix.

Mine never dumped the full mag but did double when I dropped the safety once. That's when I found out about the recall and it went back to S&W for the safety refit. Its 100% reliable now and has seen off duty carry with 2 generations of my family now.

The point was that everyone has manufacturing issues sometimes. Its not limited to any one maker, especially when you are comming out with something inovative.

Would love someone to come out with a lever rifle in the .327mag cal.

Why? They have been making 32-20 leverguns for about a century and there is very little difference between the two cartridges, the biggest diff- being the 32-20 was designed for lever actions.
