Check this beauty: S&W 627 PC 8-times
I think I found my gun.
S&W 627 Performance center 8-times 5" barrel. Mr. Jerry Miculek won his 15th world (...) championship with it.
I'm definitely and unflinchingly drooling over it
Please also check a better pic on the following link:
Sandalwood grips, drooling so much over it now I'll need to replace body fluids soon
It doesn't come cheap, but who minds?
I've no vices: no booze, no gambling, no smoke, no gals (except the missus, who doesn't count )
I eat little, work hard. A man deserves a reward in life once in a while!
Had I not lost all bodily fluids by now, I'd be drooling more for the same model with compensator:
I'll have to cheat on the price though, lest the missus is going to kill me with that same handgun
Very good choice. That is a beautiful gun. And, of course, you've seen Jerry shootin' fast, right? I've got it saved somewhere. I'll try to find it.
Here is the gun that JM has won a lot of events with. Hope it works.
the link works OK. As a matter of fact it ain't very clear which gun JM is shooting.
They say Jerry used a 627-8times to shoot the whole barrel, 8 rounds, in just a little over 1 second.
Then, the 6+6 (but som others say 3+3) in 3 seconds, may be with a 625.
The 625JM has some custom characteristics such as a grooved trigger and fires the unusual (for a revolver) .45 ACP. He probably alternates the two models...
This is an excerpt from
I can only join the choir of awed people singing: "this guy can turn a revolver into a machine-gun!"
They don’t call Jerry Miculek a “living legend” for nothing. Competing at the United States Practical Shooting Assn. (USPSA) Nationals held in Tulsa, Oklahoma, earlier this month, Miculek captured his Fifth National Revolver Championship. Jerry also holds numerous wheelgun speed-shooting records. This year’s USPSA match featured 18 stages of fire, with a variety of steel and paper targets. Miculek, competing with a Smith & Wesson Performance Center Model 627 8-shot revolver
, faced tough competition throughout the 3-day match.
“This year’s match had a little bit of everything,” said Jerry, “The courses of fire were some of the toughest I have ever seen and the changing weather conditions were a constant factor throughout the match. I am very pleased…when you consider the talented field of competitors. The USPSA staff did an outstanding job of setting up the courses of fire that were both fair and well balanced.”
CLICK HERE for a Video (hosted on YouTube), showing Jerry’s blazing speed. In the video, filmed a couple years ago, Jerry puts 8 rounds on 4 targets in 1.06 seconds. Then he does 6 shots, a reload and 6 more shots in 2.99 seconds. If you haven’t seen Miculek on camera before, we guarantee you’ll be amazed.
I seen the film where he shot six times reloaded and shot six more times in 2.9seconds with the same gun that is in that picture. It's M-625 JM in .45acp caliber. It's right at the bottom of the page. Go up and read it. Something else he hit the target with every shot. He is a factory rep for S&W and he shoots all there compition revolver's. I am sure he shoots the M-627 too. I got his cd on the tear down of a S&W revolver and it's a good one. You should get it if you ever want to take one apart. He's one of a kind in my book. Good shooting.
You're right about the 625, Baldy, he shoots both the 625 JM .45 ACP and the 627357 mag V-comp, as it turns out on his site. Thh 6 + reload + six in 3 sedconds has been accomplished by the 625JM, the 8 shots in 1 sec by teh 627 V-port:

Sooner or later I'll order both his DVd's, the one you say and the other on advanced shooting techniques.

In my book as well, you betcha!!
He's one of a kind in my book. Good shooting
Good shooting to you
I'm sure you've checked on the local pricing on that beauty and found that it's nowhere near what the MSRP is listed on the site.
My local gunshop had one on sale for $899 last year. I doubt it's that low now but still nowhere near the ~$1,200 per the S&W site.
I hope you get it. I've got my sights on it's lighter sibling the 327 TRR.
327 TRR is a cutie, no doubts about it.

So I'd pay US$ 1680 for that beaut.
No way to find'em used. No way to see them and try'em at the gunshop either, they sell'em only by order.
Also, no way to order the other versions, like the V-comp and the two-tones unfluted black and silver, which makes me absolutely drool every time I see her picture. They are simply not imported.
You americans a lucky bunch (where's that smiley for 'ENVY', bitter envy???). Were I younger, I'd sure contemplate expatriating.
I have to wait some more anyway because my documents aint' ready yet.
In the meanwhile I'm searching reports from owners on the web and I'd say 90% are enthused about it.
I decided price won't be an issue for my 1st revolver (within reason, of course. I'll never ever contemplate purchasing a US$ 6000 Korth).
I'll let the forum know of course when at last I'll be the proud owner of one. I'm going to throw an online party you can bank on it.
