Bud's gun shop (even though they're out), advertises the Model 627 as a 3-caliber gun: 38 spl, 357 mag, and 9mm with stellar clips. Is this true?

( I had a Ruger 357/9mm Blackhawk years ago, but it came with 2 cylinders. )

Now I KNOW why I didn't get any responses here ----- it is/was a Taurus Myth. Apparently back about 6-7 year ago, Taurus "announced" the Model 627 Triad that would chamber and shoot 38spl, 357 mag, and 9mms (with half-moons or steller clips.)

And it apparently never did get off the ground or off the drawing board and out the door. Seems like a neat idea to me, and I'd save my pennies if they ever actually came out with one.

But I guess it ain't going to happen.

Nice ring to it, eh? The Taurus Triad!!!!!!!

I don't see how it would be possible. The base diameter of a 357 is .379 and a 9mm is .391. A 9mm won't fit in a 357 chamber. If you reamed the cylinder out to 9mm dimentions a 357 would be a sloppy fit. Not to mention accuracy problems shooting a 9mm bullet(.355) through a 357 bore. Then you would have to consider the long jump a 9mm would have to make just to get to the throat in a 357 chamber. Way to many problems to overcome.

Guess that answers my question, I've been told it was possible several times, wouldnt want to try it with any of my guns though.

Red dog: exactly! I mentioned that year ago I had a Ruger Blackhawk that came with two cylinders: 357/38 and 9mm. But the 9mm (although I shot it a lot since surplus ammo was cheap and saved me some realoding time), was never as accurate as the 357s. I suspect it was because the bore had to be sized to .357 and the 9mms are only .355 Not a big difference, but I can't account for why else it would be less accurate than the other. ( I also had a BHawk in 45lc and with a 45 acp cylinder).


But I sure WOULD buy a Triad if they could work out the technical problems.

Yes I considered a convertable Blackhawk years ago when Buckeye wholsale had them. A friend bought one and the nine didn't shoot for beans. That was back before the 9mm became popular and all the guys I knew in LE were still carrying 357's.

If the chambers on the .357 is generous enough it will chamber. I can shoot certain brands of .38 Super in my S&W 360 .357.

I guess generous would be a polite way of describing a 357 that will chamber 9mm. Most won't and weren't intended to.
