The 28 is a great choice for heavy loads. I personally have a 28 fetish.

Yeah, Me too...



The only one missing is a 6" 28-3. By the time the -3's were rolled out, 6" or longer guns were no longer vogue. Based upon what I've seen in my search, there are ALOT more 4" guns than 6"...

You guys have some pretty M28s. Mine is an extra-ugly Texas Dept of Public Safety trade in. Paid $125 for it about 10 years ago. It has now been roundbutted and all the square edges melted. Had it plated with some type plating used for plating down hole oil field tools. Looks a lot like that straw colored nickle you used to see on Colt Commanders instead of bright nickle. Hammer has also been bobbed. If you are willing to buy your jeans a size or so bigger this carries like a dream IWB and you have something in your hand that you can actually hit with if you have to use it. While I know that will make a "collector" cringe it is one heck of a handgun.

Got it back on Friday. Armorer at the store said when he called them to send it in they asked about it, he explained it, they diagnosed it as end shake, and sent him shims for the cylinder. This sound correct?

At any rate while dry firing it the thing works perfectly now without even a hint of the catch in the action like before. He said if it did it again to bring it back in to them.

Finally got to fire it yesterday. Went bang and worked fine. More accurate than I am. 158gr .357 Magnum soft points make spectacular "sod explosions" when you miss though.

The only department issue gun I ever had was a Mod .28.Back in the 70's they broke the mold and hired a new Chief from outside the department. He was a former State Trooper and that's what they issued at the time,so he got them for us.
I loved it and still have it. A heavy,hard duty revolver,that will run with the best.
All the other years I had to furnish my own service weapon.

I know this is an old threat, but they did make 8 3/8" barrel model 28's too. Someone on here has one and posted a picture at one point.

A belated congratulations on your 28-3! This got me to thinking, I've seen a lot of damaged Kframes, large bore Nframes, and a blowed up Colt or two, but I haven't seen any damaged (maybe a bulged barrel) Nframe .38/357.......ever.

That is incorrect; the 44 and 357 Magnums operate at nearly identical pressures.
