Estate find: S&W Model 27-2

An estate sale find last week. This one has me pleasantly suprised with an odd twist. It looked very lightly used......possibly unfired. It came with the orginal box and wax paper. The deep luster of the bluing is incredible and barely captured in my pics. I paid $500 cash for it. :D

It is a 1970-71 Smith & Wesson Model 27-2 (.357 Magnum) in an 8-3/8" barrel configuration.

The odd part? The orginal stocks (grips) were apparently removed and replaced. The current grips are a fairly rare set of 1956, non-relieved, diamond center, checkered, target grips. I have already received several offers between $175 and $225 just for the stocks.

I shot it over the past weeknd and it is very smooth and very accurate.

Wow, you got a steal. The model 27-2 is rising so quickly in value that they've become unaffordable to me. I'd love to get a hold of a 4" for about $500 but I don't seem to have any luck finding classic Smith revolvers in decent shape.

Oh yea, congrats on a beautiful revolver. I'm jealous.
