10/29/21 - This is a near-mint Smith & Wesson Model 27 in its original, matching box. It features a 3in barrel and the target grips. The original blue is beautiful and rates at 98-99% with just a turn line on cylinder and a hint of muzzle wear. Minty bore and grips. Nice case hardening on trigger and hammer. Perfect timing/action. Serial dates this one to either the later months of 1958 or early in 1959.
