Smith & Wesson introduced the limited edition model 627 in .38 Super. This competition-caliber revolver features red, white and blue grips and a glass bead finish that give it a very distinctive look for both the range and the Sunday BBQ.
Designed and built by the Smith & Wesson Performance Center, the model 627 has a 5 1/2″ barrel with compensator, a Patridge front sight and adjustable rear sight. And yes, it has an internal lock.
The S&W 627 comes with full-moon clips and a spent case removal tool.
The standard S&W model 627 is an eight-shot .357 Magnum. This version is in .38 Super, a cartridge frequently associated with competition shooting in the United States. Combined with the styling of this handgun, it would appear S&W is gearing this firearm for the competition market.
The model 627 is available to your dealer only through Birmingham-based Bangers distributor. Pricing is set by the dealer, and no MSRP is given by Smith & Wesson.

At this time, the S&W model 627 in .38 Super is no longer available through any normal channels. The limited production gun was made only as a short run for the Bangers distributor, and no more were made. The revolver is not listed in the Smith & Wesson catalog or on the company’s website.
Occasionally, a model 627 in .38 Super will come up for sale or auction on one of the internet gun sales sites, and a collector can find the guns there. However, one can expect to pay a premium over the original price because of the relative rarity of the gun. Do not expect to pick up a pristine, unfired gun on the cheap.
