The .327 Federal Magnum cartridge is impressive, you can tell immediately that you have a very powerful caliber in your hand. Recoil seems a bit more than a .38 +P out of a snubnose, but that is a reasonable comparison.
The double action trigger pull feels quite normal for a small frame revolver. Stages cylinder very nicely allowing you to squeeze off accurate double action shots. The single action trigger on this particular gun is amazing. Single action pull is very light with almost no perceptible movement prior to trigger break.
Fixed sights consistently shoot about 4 inches to the left at 10 yards. Overall grouping of shots is reasonable for a 2 inch barrel revolver. If you are looking for a small carry weapon in a powerful caliber with 6 shots, this is an excellent choice.
