Welcome to the forum. Plenty of love for the 28-2 around here. Have a look.

The 4" versions usually bring slightly more than the 6" guns. In good condition they sell for $400-$450 in most cases. Just guessing that serial seems like early 1970s. This gun should be marked MOD 28-2 on the frame under the cylinder crane. The -2s were made from 1962 until 1983.

The HP was introduced in 1954. I have one from about the 2nd month of production.


I LOVE THIS GUN!!

Id appreciate it if you could point me in the direction of those $400-$450 28-2s.

Hi.

I have a 4 inch barrel ctg .357 Highway Patrolman Serial number S 116190. I'm trying to best determine it's age or production era.

Id say it's in fair condition. Its missing one screw from the frame and the grips are pretty well beat up. Can I still find a replacement screw and replacement grips for this gun?

My 28 no dash shipped in 1960. S serial #201147. Not too far from yours. Bob

I hate it when I get suckered into an old post. Especially when I responded years ago! Bob

My first firearm was a 28-2 purchased in 1975 (180xxx). I still have it. I was to young to purchase myself, so my father did the purchase and then "sold" it to me on my 21st birthday. It probably has no more than 500 rounds through it. The only flaw is a slight chip in the grip.

A couple more have followed me home over the years. These are my shooters. I also have a 27-2 to compliment my N frame collection. I prefer the heavy N frame over the lighter frames.

Shoot it, and enjoy it. You'll end up buying a few more.
