Excellent revolver! Bought this as a home defense weapon since I've found that pistols whose magazines are loaded but not used for long stretches of time tend to have feed problems because the magazine springs are compressed for so long. Revolvers don't have that problem. Having at least 8 rounds was a necessity for me in a home defense gun. This gun has a noticeably larger diameter cylinder which my arm catches on while walking, but since this gun will remain by my bedside I don't have a problem with that. The gun comes with 3 moonclips that are sometimes easy and sometimes hard to load. I found that using pinch nose pliers make the moonclips consistently easy to load.

I bought this 627 Pro as a 60th birthday present for myself and I am glad I did. First, Bud's had the lowest price on it I could find by a pretty good margin and I have bought from Bud's before on multiple occasions. The pistol shipped in a reasonable amount of time and when I received it and looked it over, I could tell right away that it had just been shot at the factory on every other charge hole by the powder marks on the cylinder. The barrel wasn't overclocked or anything like that and there were no big quality control problems with the pistol. In the 2 weeks or so that I've had it in my possession I've shot around 600 rounds through it from mild to wild and have nothing to complain about. After changing out the rebound slide spring to a 13 lb Wolff spring, the single action trigger pull is right on 3 lbs and the double action trigger pull is around 11.5 lbs and very smooth and with no stacking. If you are looking for an 8 shot 357 Magnum revolver, this nice pistol is a keeper. It doesn't have the outright beauty of a nice nickel or blue firearm, but it is one sweet shooting and accurate revolver. I just can't see spending $200+ more dollars for the 5" barrel PC version of this pistol as this one does come with a power rib mainspring and also uses the same front sight system as the 629 Classic series, which makes swapping the ramp sight for a patridge style site dead easy and quick.

This one is going to the grave with me. If you are looking for a rev with an awsome trigger out of the box this is it. Perfect 4in 8round solid lock up and great weight. Buds as always had this very hard to get beauty only for a short time. And i stumbled to get my checkbook to lock it in. 🔫🔫👍👍my wife and i will be on the range with this quickly. My only issue is with S&W. Can you please make the trigger and hammer out of stainless steel. Come on this gun would be a perfect 10 however aestheticallyit just does not look like a perfect 10. Take a look at ruger, they do it. Geeeeeeeezz😲😲😲😲😲😲

The Pro Series 627 revolver at this time is an immediate favorite in my revolver collection. I purchased this for local steel plate matches shooting .38 Special rounds, no intentions of shooting Magnums through it right now. It handles and points quick. All I did was replace the firing pin with an Apex competition pin and installed a 14lb. rebound spring. I shoot it at 8lb trigger pull using Federal match primers and ever one goes bang! Fit and finish, IMHO is better than the Performance Center guns coming off the line these days. This one may get a red dot for my older eyes but it's a great shooter with open sights, and even with my not so large hands I find it very comfortable. I really can't say enough about this revolver, I absolutely love it, highly recommended.

Gun arrived to my FFL very dirty but I inspected gun thouroughly and found no other problems with gun besides trigger and hammer already bluing in some areas but I can deal with that so I dont know if S&W sends it like that from their factory or Buds tests them on their range? So inspect your guns thouroughly before transfer. Got it home and cleaned it up and this thing looks awsome. Haven't fired it yet but I will get to in the next week or so but so far I am pleased, this things center of balance is awsome.

This is what I always wanted. An N frame 8 shot wheel gun! The pro series revolvers have one of the sweetest triggers and is easy to shoot full house magnum loads. Fit and finish is typical S&W. Very high quality with attention to detail. This is obviously a popular item because the price has just gone up since my purchase. As usual, A+++ for Bud's. Gun was shipped within 3 days to my FFL. I don't buy guns anywhere else. Gurney has handled all my transactions and I couldn't be happier. Give that guy a raise!!!
