Smith & Wesson has announced the release of a new Jerry Miculek signature revolver, the Performance Center Model 327 WR.

Designed in partnership with Professional Shooter and S&W Brand Ambassador Jerry Miculek, the Model 327 WR boasts features that embody speed and accuracy. This lightweight 9 mm handgun is built on a scandium N-frame and includes a titanium cylinder that allows the user to quickly and precisely transition between targets. Included with the brass bead front and adjustable rear sight package, is a Vortex COMPDOT and C.O.R.E. optic-plate system for revolvers that accommodates a wide range of optics to enhance the shooter’s experience. The revolver also features a JM Signature laminated wood grip that provides optimal ergonomics for any necessary adjustments needed between holster draw and target acquisition. 

At the Smith & Wesson Headquarters Grand Opening weekend in October 2023, Jerry set two NRA World Records with his Model 327 WR prototype, making history once again and further positioning himself as one of the greatest shooters to ever do it. The records included the fastest time to hit six steel plates at seven yards from the draw with a 9 mm handgun in 2.01 seconds, and the same with a revolver in 1.88 seconds. “Crafted from the blueprint of shooting excellence, the new Model 327 WR is more than just a high-performance firearm—it’s a legacy. With modern upgrades to an already trusted platform, Jerry’s new signature revolver is a tribute to the mastery of precision and the art of sports shooting perfected by Jerry himself,” said Product Manager Corey Beaudreau.

The Performance Center Model 327 WR includes an 8-round capacity, 5-inch ported stainless-steel barrel, and smooth double-action trigger. It is a limited release of 1,880 units, reflecting Jerry’s recent record time of 1.88 seconds. The revolver ships in a custom Pelican hard case with a foam insert to safely secure the handgun and all its included accessories.
