I would strongly suggest doing a DETAILED inspection of any 1927 you are considering buying. While they were very well made guns many that I have seen were subjected to very rough treatment by the State Armories over the years. Many were stored on racks using a long steel rod up the barrel and the breechface may have serious damage from the steel rod slamming into it repeatedly for years. One customer brought a 1927 into our shop and the breechface was so badly damaged we had to replace the slide. But if you find one in good shape they are very good 1911s. Look before you buy.
