Smith & Wesson 627 Question

I received this question in a comment on an earlier post, and I don't have the answer for his question. If you know what he needs to know, leave him a comment below. Thanks!
2 identical s&w revolvers. 1 has a pinned sear ,the other's hammer does not. being a novice and knowing now that it will not be fired much, less than 300rds a year, if i purchase one , which spec should i go with?(if i decide to buy) who rather have a pinned sear or not? pinned sears are old fashion technology, right? just can't decide what would be a better spec. depending on your opinion , i might or might not purchase either set up. your article convinced me you are the man to get an opinion from, if possible. This is a new s&w 627 (performance center built) this question exits from your primary topic but i beg your pardon for an opinion. thanks

I would go for the newer model, which does not have the firing pin mounted on the hammer.

As I recall, there were some other improvements made at the same time, so I expect you would be somewhat better off with the newer model.

I am pretty sure all 8-shot 627s have frame mounted firing pins, assuming that's what we're talking about and not, actually a sear. The pic looks like a 6-shot 5-inch bbl model and will have a firing pin on the hammer. Nice gun!
