We have taken in a nice old SMITH & WESSON MODEL 28 "HIGHWAY PATROLMAN" in .357 with a 4" bbl. This veteran has an "S-" prefix serial number. It is PINNED and RECESSED, with Herret's TARGET GRIPS, TARGET HAMMER AND TARGET TRIGGER.
This gun was used well by it's previous owner, but is in very good condition both cosmetically and mechanically. Bluing is about 85% - typical muzzle wear, cylinder rod, etc. No gouges or rust. The cylinder shows MINOR play - probably 1-2mm max. Trigger is crisp and hammer fall is positive on an indexed chamber.
The factory (aftermarket??) hand checkering on the top rib and frame is very well done, with only a few blunted points from normal wear. A closed-up shows both barrel and cylinder with a slight plum shade, not unusual with some older S&W N- and K- frames.
We've had some comments that this is a 27/28 hybrid. It is not - frame is stamped model 28-2, so I'm assuming the work was done after original purchase. Maybe.
Again, this gun had a long happy shooting career, and still plenty of life left in it. The Model 28s were the "less fancy" (less polished) versions of the more expensive model 27s - but gave up nothing in terms of quality, accuracy and dependbility.
A teriffic shooter and a fine carry or home defense icon. Consider S&W restoation for a super collectible...?
