The 327 Fed Mag offers less recoil than the 357 Mag revolvers but it still has some pop. The pistolŻalso chambers and fires 32 H&R Mag and 32 S&W, but they can be more difficult to find than 327 Fed Mag. Weíre guessing that Ruger discontinued this because it didnít sell all that well, but thatís not fault of the handgun.
Both Rugers had a more hand- filling rubber grip that absorbed felt recoil.
