Default Model 28-2

Hi All:

New to forum and was told you guys/girls might be able to help me date my new gun. Its a Model 28-2 4" with serial #N113880. I also attached a picture, which brings me to my next question.

What kind of S&W grips are these, don't believe I have seen this type before.

Thank You

J Butz

Welcome to the Forum.

Looks like 1973.

I believe that the grips are Hogues,currently being produced for Smith & Wesson. Definitely not period correct for the 28-2.

I'm leaning towards Altamont grips. S&W has been using them on their revolvers the last few years.

Welcome to the forum.

Stick around and you'll learn quite a bit from this group

I'd say Magna grips were probably on that gun when shipped.

Let us know how it shoots.

Those grips are Altamont Bateleurs, Checkered Engraved Super Rosewood with Silver Medallions made for the square butt N frame.

Mine sports a pair of Cocobolo Herrett smooth targets. Period correct would be a pair of Magna stocks, I believe. You have a great shooting .357.

I just picked up a 28-2 myself a few weeks back. There's something about that N frame!
