Mechanics: The action functions correctly. The double-action trigger is smooth and the single-action trigger is crisp. The cylinder has very little play on each chamber when the trigger is depressed. We did not fire this handgun. As with all used firearms, a thorough cleaning may be necessary to meet your maintenance standards.

Our Assessment: This is Smith & Wesson’s Model 327 Performance Center TRR8, perhaps one of the finest out-of-the-box defensive or competition revolvers. It has a capacity of 8-rounds of .357 Magnum or .38 Special and the cylinder is cut for use with moon clips, allowing for the fastest possible reloads and the most consistent ejection. The iron sights are great for fast acquisition, but the revolver is also ready to accept a scope or red-dot as well as a light or laser sight. The scandium frame keeps the weight down to just over two pounds. The gun is in Excellent condition, showing signs of little use, and comes with almost everything it would brand new. This is a wonderful opportunity at one of the finest production revolvers in the world. Please see our pictures and good luck!
