I guess my lucky stars are in perfect alignment. Scored another of my favorites N frames. A Model 28. I got it in a straight across trade a Taurus 45 with a laser and an extra extended mag. It pays to advertise!! These young guys with grandpa's hand-me-downs just have to find a modern automatic.
I was really expecting to have to negotiate some cash on my end to close the deal but when he said ok. I had to control my joy. After we shook hands and closed the deal he said "I bought these along in case you want them". He handed me the original target grips in the picture. Took me about 30 seconds after arriving home to find a screw driver to remove the Pachmeyers.
The Mod28 has some holster wear and the grips need some TLC but with apx 320 invested in the Taurus including the extra mag and laser. I really have something to boast about.
This is the Model 28 with those ugly rubbers removed.
These are my two scores this week. The 28 is not quite as beautiful as my Model 58. Can't wait to get them both to the range.
