Yep, S223xxx is a 3 screw 28-2.

I guarantee it.

It's in layaway as we speak and if I could remember the last three, I'd tell you. (I hate CRS)

As per another thread I started, S2227xx is a 28-2 3 screw.

So a 28-1 would need to be earlier.

The other 3 screw is S223655. I went by and asked so I could letter it before I get it out of layaway.

Speedo2- You didn't get the rest of that S2211xx's serial by chance? We getting to around 1000 guns for the change.

Going by memory, here (...knowledge-based processes, as we say in neutron-world: always a risky venture), I think that it was S221184. I should pick up my earlier (buncha zeros) 4-screw M28 this weekend and will post photos; also I'll verify the info on the above xxxx84 4-screw no dash if it's still there. -S2

This was my first handgun I ever shot. I wanted to see if the .357 would go through a telephone pole. It did, and I didn't know about ear protection.

My Dad gave this to me about 8 years ago. It has some light rough spots from the years in the holster, but I'll never get rid of it. Ser 2816XX mfg 1966-67.

S2- looking at the tag on the no dash, xxxx84 is certainly a possibility. Of course, so was 34.

Thanks for taking the time to look at it again for us. That's what makes this board great.

Here are a couple of my HPs. I'll try to post better pics soon.
First, here is my 5-screw Highway Patrolman S109XXX.




Second, here is my plain jane 28-2 with a S246xxx serial number.

PZ93C, confirmed that 4-screw M28 no-dash's sn is S221184, and it's still in the shop.
Also, today I brought home a couple of new (to me) N-frames, one of which fits into this thread; another M28 no-dash, 6", sn 190000 (previously I reported it as 1200000...wrong again). Anyway, here's some photos of it wearing some of those new Altamont's (...better than the goodyears that it came with, but still not quite right); also the newbe along with my 4" M28-2 (sn S2244xx):




Still too cold to shoot today, so I'll just have to make the rounds to some of the local gun shows to find some better grips. -S2

Because S221184 is a 4 screw 28 no dash. If your 28-2 is S221xxx and it's a 3 screw, which both of those appear to be, we've narrowed the gap between SN's for the beginning of the 3 screw frame.

We appreciate the additional information.

I have a 6" 4 screw S2039xx. Came with diamond target grips. Should the grips be serial numbered to match the gun? No number is visible on the grips, and they fit very nicely.

Could have, but it also could have had Magna's and the Targets were fit by the dealer or ordered with both sets.

Targets stocks weren't regularly numbered and have been heard of only once or twice.

Have you lettered it? Roy may be able to tell you.

I have a set of diamond magnas for that revolver, but once I put the stags on, I liked the look so much, that they are there to stay. Something about the brushed bluing and the stag really works for me.

My first handgun was a M28 purchased in 1966 for $98.00.Have not had one until today when I happened on a 99% 4" # N6XXX (cannot remember the last 3 #'s)for $475.00.Getting back to where I started with my S&W's(and Winchesters).Grips are magna's numbered but not to the gun and have silver discs holding the medallion.There is a large "H" stamped on the rear portion of the cylinder.Was this standard on all the HP's? Will list the complete # when I pick up the HP and will post a photo.

Here are some better pics of my two Highway Patrolman revolvers. One is a 6" 5-screw S109xxx (~1954) and the other is a 4" 28-2 S246xxx (~1964). I'm currently looking for a 4" 5-screw model.

This is my Moms 4" HP with a smooth faced trigger, and a narrow checkered hammer. I think it is from around '71 or '72. Serial number is N843XX.

Here's a 79 or so build - N541,2xx. A little muzzle wear and on the cylinder (holster wear), but it has nary a mark on the recoil shield and locks up like new. Carried a bit, shot none. I believe she's had an action job because she's smoother than my 67 and 686, which are VERY smooth. I like her enough to maybe let her do bear patrol duty with me instead of my 686 or 629.

Thanks for posting these numbers. At first, I thought I saw a discrepancy, because I have two of the NYSP 520's and I know that they were made in 1980. Both of their numbers are in the 550,000 range.
Then I noticed that the 1980 date has numbers that range from 500,000 to 800,000. Why would this be? Was there a great increase in production around this time, or what?
Also, were the frames numbered before or after deciding what model number to make them into? My logic tells me that it was before.

I picked up a non-factory electroless nickle Model 28-3 at the Tulsa Gun Show today. It is not pinned but is recessed. The Serial Number is N2272XX which seems to be way out of sequence. There is obviously little wear on the breach face and it does not seem to have been repolished so it seems it was refinished when it was near new, There is also little evidence of peening in the cylinder stops. I will try to get a camera that will take a close up of the SN and Model number in the yoke recess. Any idea why the SN would be that out of sequence?

Just picked it up today. My first HP! It's not marked N, frame or cylinder, so I don't think the satin nickel is factory original. Not sure about the TT and TH either. The RR looks factory. Ejector relieved (football) grips are not numbered.

N192xxx

Oh yeah, how about an early sales flyer:

You don't happen to remember the serial # range that nickel gun was in do you? I have a very low(under N2K) serial # M28 that was either satin nickeled or plated with something else at some point. Some fool painted it black at some point. It's in the pic below, cleaned up as best I could. On the left, second from the top.

Here is a M28-2 #N110XXX I picked up last week. Thought it was a steal for $230.00
Just awaiting a pair of Magnas! I hate the rubber!

Here's my 28-2 I picked up last June. Serial number N195XXX. I hadn't had much time to fire it over the last year (getting job, losing job, buying house, starting school, getting married, etc.) I was actually thinking about selling it and buying a piece to CCW. Luckily I've been out to fire it and have come to my senses. I just got the Ahrends and they are awesome. Much better then the Eagle classics I had on it.

DON'T SELL IT mikeyjsc - you'll never find another 28-1.
They're tough to find. Enjoy it
