Yes, their main issue gun for years was the S&W Highway Patrolman (pre-28 and 28) in both 4" and 6" barrels. These were marked SFPD on the left side of the frame under the cylinder or on the backstrap in a much cruder fashion than the Model 58's. The 58's were done by a jeweler. There may have been some 586's issued at some point as well, but I think the vast majority of guys were carrying 28's to the end.

After Officer Jim Guelff was killed back in 1994 the entire department switched to the Beretta 96F and everyone had to carry the same gun. Then they switched to the current Sig 226R 40 S&W in the early 2000's.
