So imagine this for a moment.

A S&W quality j- frame revolver. Seven shot cylinder of screaming 327 fed magnum. Scandium/aluminum/titanium frame and cylinder. 3 inch ported barrel. Comes with 3 grips to fit any hand. Revolver reliability. No difficult slide racking. Simple. No safeties or magazines to contend with. Super light weight, yet controllable recoil. Easily concealable.

Easily concealable.
And impossible to obtain... :no:

It was six rounds, not ultralight, and you had to buy the grips on your own. It was the model 632, now discontinued.

It's also on my "buy right now if I ever see one" list.

How about a 9 shot based on the Redhawk frame with a 7" barrel and scope rings?

Yep, that is a very handsome looking gun. But I think my next revolver will be a S&W 66 in .357...or a s&W 686 plus 3" barrel.

In the meantime I'm saving my pennies...

One of the main advantages of the .327 Magnum is that it has a narrower profile than the venerable .357 Magnum, while still being much more powerful than the older .32 H&R Magnum. This gives manufacturers the opportunity to squeeze an extra round into the cylinder of a gun. So, instead of five .357 Magnum rounds in a typical concealed carry revolver, a shooter might carry a .327 Magnum that holds six rounds instead. For personal protection, that extra round could be very attractive to buyers.

With the return of the 3″ barrel .327 Magnum, Ruger fans can once again get a SP101 in this caliber that is more suited for concealed carry. Sights are a pinned ramp front with a notch rear. The grips are the rubber with wood insert that are frequently used by the company. The suggested retail price is $749.

The gun is slightly different than the original. For example, the original SP101 in .327 Magnum had the plain black grips. Additionally, it had a drift adjustable rear sight with a box outline.

Note: If you are looking for something even smaller, Ruger does offer the LCR in .327 Magnum. That gun retains the six round capacity but has a 1.87″ barrel and lightens the load to 17 ounces.

Pretty sure it'd fit inside an N frame cyl, and at less than 2"Ø you could put it in something easy to reframe, like an LCR. Probably less than 20oz loaded and 11 shots. Make the cylinder using powdered metal technology, net shapes well within .001". Minimal machining.
