Charter had problems with them. They discontinued the model(s), recalled some, and traded some customers .38s/.357s for them in some cases. There are still a few out there in the world, but I wouldn't buy one with the intent to shoot it, even if it was the deal of a lifetime.

If you want a 'cheapie' .327, dig around for one of the Taurus versions. The M327 was offered with a 2" barrel (common); a 3" ported barrel (uncommon); and a 3" unported barrel (rare). There were several finish options (blue, matte nickel, polished nickel), and at least the 2" versions could be found with bobbed hammers.
