Our Assessment: The Model 627 was introduced by Smith & Wesson in 1989 as a special edition stainless version of the timeless N-Frame Model 27. Production would later continue as an 8-shot Performance Center revolver. This is the original Model of 1989 627-0 with a 5 1/2″ barrel with a checkered rib & topstrap plus an unfluted 6-shot cylinder. This one has hardly any wear and with about 5,000 made would certainly be a nice addition to a collection of Smith & Wessons, it even comes with its original box. Please see our pictures and good luck.
