From a bright young Pennsylvania collector and trader comes this specimen of Smith & Wesson’s Highway Patrolman revolver, the direct descendant of the Registered Magnum. Numbered model 28, second engineering change. As far as we know, its home domicile was in the Keystone State. Department marking on the left side of the frame has been obliterated, and this is its greatest detractions. We have not applied for a letter from Smith & Wesson. From its S302000 range serial number, it was manufactured in 1968. Frame is N Square Butt. Barrel is 4 inch with serrated blade front sight mounted on the solid rib. Rear sight is black blade adjustable. Hammer is .400 short spur target with matching serrated face target trigger; the officer added an unmarked Williams serrated face trigger shoe. Grips are period correct, 10 Point, from the Mershon Company, ancestors to Pachmayrs. Weight empty is 46 1/2 ounces, with center of gravity at the trigger. Caliber, of course, is .357 Remington Magnum and interchangeably .38 Special, 6 shot cylinder. Surface detractions on this 28-2 are moderate to extensive, with substantial whitening and browning to the cylinder surface, extensive edge whitening, and freckling here and there. We rate this 28-2 as Good, perhaps Very Good, 70 percent vicinity, but photos ought to enable our distinguished shoppers to judge finish grade for themselves. It is excellent mechanically. Bore, chamber, and mechanism are all bright, clean, and excellent. Double action trigger pull is smooth and consistent, and the hammer travels an additional 5 to 10 degrees on all six positions after the cylinder times. On single action, the hammer travels fully 30 degrees on all six after it times, and the single action trigger pull is a crisp original 4 1/16 pounds. Lateral play to the cylinder is 1 to 2 mm with the trigger relaxed, and 1mm with the trigger fully depressed. Cylinder face to forcing cone gap is a wide .015, but we do not detect any abnormal endshake. Blast effect to the under side of the frame top strap is moderate, a narrow relatively shallow groove that traverses about 3/4 of the width of the top strap, as the photo will show. This is a solid, still serviceable and still attractive specimen of a classic Smith & Wesson Revolver. We’re offering it for only $ 489.00. Not transferable
