Smith & Wesson "HIGHWAY PATROLMAN" Model 28-2 " .357 Mag./.38 Spec. Revolver - "Old/New" -  1 Owner - Discontinued/Collectible  Guns > Pistols > Smith & Wesson Revolvers > Full Frame Revolver
Description: "Old/New" gun with 100 % original factory finish in same new condition as when left the factory.

Though it's been decades, I seem to recall that I purchased the gun new in, maybe, 1969 (the year that the "N" prefix was added to the M28 serial numbers) or in the early 1970s -- if that's the correct time frame, then manufacture date would likely have been within that period.

Since it left the factory, to preserve its new condition/appearance, I’ve not turned the cylinder (mint chambers), cocked the hammer, or pulled the trigger; the cylinder has such a faint, extremely-narrow turn line (from factory test-firing) as to be nearly invisible to the naked eye.

"N"-framed gun, a version of the S&W Model 27; Model 28s are mechanically the same as the Model 27s. Produced from 1954 to 1986. Weight: approximately 44 oz. Overall length: 11 1/4". Fires .357 Magnum and .38 Special cartridges. Single/double action. 6-shot. 6" pinned barrel; mint bore. Square butt. Shrouded ejector rod with finely-knurled tip. Elevation/windage adjustable micrometer rear sight; rear of ramp/top of blade front sight are serrated, for glare reduction; rear sight blade has square notch with rear of blade mount (facing shooter) serrated, for glare reduction. Blued with bead-blasted matte finish, including the frame rounds on the top strap, top of the barrel rib, and top of the rear sight assembly, which is beneficial for glare reduction when sighting. Cut-checkered/-outlined Magna walnut service grip panels with inlaid S&W silver-toned medallions. Color casehardened, service trigger (serrated) and service hammer with cut-checkered hammer spur and cylinder latch. Serrated front and rear of grip frame. Has recessed/countersunk (mint) cylinder chambers; that is, the bores in the cylinder are countersunk so that the cartridge rims fit flush with the rear of the cylinder face, thus enclosing the entire lengths of the cartridges, as compared to later models in which there was no recessed/countersunk chambers or pinned barrels (to reduce production costs) , thus causing the rims of the cartridges to protrude and be visible outside of the cylinder. Barrel inscriptions: left side: "SMITH & WESSON; right side: ".357 CTG. (w/symbol between; see photo) HIGHWAY PATROLMAN". Right rear side of frame has S&W logo; right front side of frame has "MADE IN U.S.A. MARCUS REGISTRADAS SMITH & WESSON SPRINGFIELD, MASS."

Serial number: N551566 (is on bottom of grip frame).

Includes original, as-new blue factory box (with end label serial number matched to gun), brown protective (rust resistance) paper wrap, all original papers (Parts List/Instructions For Use/Maintenance/Specifications, Information Card, Authorized Smith & Wesson Warranty-Service Centers, Holsters For Your New Gun, Smith & Wesson Ammunition), and gun cleaning accessories (rod, bore swab, bore brush, screwdriver) in original unsealed plastic bag. The box itself is in as-new condition.

The reason for no-return policy is because the gun is completely as honestly described, to the best of my ability, in the ad and as shown in the photos.

Thanks for visiting my ad.
