Eight-Shot .357 Mag. Wheelguns: Smith and Taurus Face Off
Could S&W Performance Centerís high-capacity 627PC, almost twice the price of Taurusí 608, be worth the money? We find out.
The words high-capacity and revolver are not often used in the same sentence. However, eight-shot revolvers have been on the scene for a number of years now, and the list is quietly, almost secretly, growing. In the last year, Smith & Wesson has released two new models, one in .38 Super and another blued-steel model with old-fashioned (nee, classic), two-piece wooden grips, to replace the Model 27. In this test, however, we’ll focus on the two revolvers that started it all, the Taurus 608 and the S&W 627PC.
