From what i can tell in the SCSW 3rd edition it would have been made in either 1968 or 1969 my guess is late 1968. We all love pictures of S&W revolvers.

Information for the Database & Questions

I have two "S" serial 28-2's...I don't think either will expand any important
knowledge or category...(I have posted pic's previously), they are:

S 272878: I had seen some info much earlier in this thread where someone (now a banned member) had one only 37 numbers different than this one. They claimed that one was part of a purchase by Wisconsin Highway Patrol. There are no extra or special markings of any sort on this one (found LNIB in Northern WI), so I wonder could it have been originally purchased as a WI HP Highway Patrolman(I would like that!)- may pursue a S&W letter eventually. (4" barrel, numbered Magnas, plain black ramp FS)

S 302980 This one looks pretty high along in the "S" range for those I see documented in this thread. Also 4" barrel, Magnas, plain black ramp.

For general information, and because it is in a very interesting range, I also recently got a Model 27 no dash...it has a 4 screw frame/ 6.5" Barrel/10-groove front and backstraps;RR/WO sights/ and diamond target stocks. This 4 Screw Model 27 Serial is: S 186073

Great Thread!

Just got this yesterday. High S Ser#. A couple small dings but otherwise very nice. Except the stocks. I would like to replace them. What should have come on this gun from the factory?

I'd say Magna's although the Target stock could be special ordered.

Here are two of my pre-28's that look my 28-2 (except for the screws and less the diamond on the stocks):



I am not sure what those stocks are, but you could probably trade around in the FT threads.

[QUOTE=Allen-frame;776489],Ultimate Highway Patrolman Thread After searching for, and reading almost every Highway Patrolman thread,(there are currently 24 pages when using the search function). I found myself longing for a thread where one could go for all things H.P.

This thread would ideally include serial number ranges, pictures of members guns,including Ser.#s(excluding digits
as preferred) , any info received in letters , and, of course, plenty of opinions.

Kind of a Highway Partolman database, where newbies and all could be directed to, to answer questions.



April, 1954, Highway Patrolman introduced, Ser.# S103500
,8,427 produced in 1954,

Sometime,late 1956 to 1957 the upper sideplate screw deleted at approx. Ser.# S171584 (earlier 4 screw N frames have been noted,but this is generally conceded to be the dividing line.)_ Al

The time between when the upper sideplate screw was deleted and the model number was stamped is when the
4 screw non-model marked N frames were produced. By my estimate, there were approximately 11,000 n.m.m. 4 screws
produced throughout the various models including ,,357 Magnum ,Highway Patrolman ,38/44 Heavy Duty ,44 hand ejector ,1950 Target models , and 1955 Target models. ,How many of these were Highway Patrolman , who only knows.
But do keep your eye out for this scarce variation and let us know whenever you find one

I may have a pre model 28 4-screw that you mention. Actually "did" have but I gave it to one of my sons a couple of years ago for Christmas. I will get him to verify the SN and that it is a 4-screw and get back to you today.

I believe your 4 Screw NMM Highway Patrolman makes a total of 10 so far including both 4 and 6 inch barrels. Has anyone recorded the ones in this thread?

Thanks for that info Gunnison. I did not know these were so rare. I personally have no idea if anyone has recorded the ones on this thread or where they would even be recorded.

I looked at a 28-2 this morning and like a dummy didn't take any photos. It must have been a salesman's sample. It was nickle plated with flats milled on each side of the barrel and in script on the left side it had Smith and Wesson and on the other side the caliber, (I think). There was one on this forum several months ago and I can't find it now. I have searched with no luck. Can anybody put a finger on it and let me know where it's at, or maybe deleted?

Thanks in advance,

Leon

That is a great looking HP!! I'm sure you'll enjoy it as much as the rest of us enjoy ours!! Remember, as pretty as these guys are, they were made to be shot!! Solid, heavy, durable, and accurate.

Best Regards, Les

Default 28-2 Rubber grips

Did the 28-2 ever come from factory with rubber/Pacmyer grip? Was there a S&W logo? Thanks

Firearms that have been carried and fired, basically used for what they are intended, are more interesting than otherwise. Yours fits that category.

No not quite. The gun frame was a project a friend of mine never finished before he passed. His family gave it to me. It was parkerized over some pitting. The rest of the revolver I scrounged up to complete it. It shoots good.

I bet it means a lot to you and I'm sure your friend is looking down, happy to know you continued his project and have it in good working order. Cherish and enjoy it.

I have an old .22 and shotgun a buddy of mine owned, his wife gave them to me when he passed. I refinished the stocks, cleaned them up and have them in good working order. They are of little monetary value but I'm happy to have em, every time I look at them or shoot them I think of my good friend Ed and the days we spent plinking on his farm.

I remember one day as I was a young lad here in NY being eye level and two feet from the grips of on of those, it was in the holster of a Trooper who held to door for us as we entered a store. I remember looking at the nickle plated rounds in his belt and wondering if the were silver bullets like the Lone Ranger had. I was awestruck by the gun, enough so that I remember it clearly almost sixty years later.

Default Highway Patrolman Thread Addition?

Hi, not sure if this thread is still active and accepting more HPs. But...
I have two of them.
First is a Model 28 No Dash Serial S183841 6" 4-Screw
Looks like 1958 (?) Virtually mint but for cylinder line. Grips match serial number. Finish is better than the 28-2 and action smoother with excellent trigger. Not that the young gal is any slouch!

Next is a Model 28-2 Serial N118708 6" 3-Screw. 1973(?) It has the original blue box. VG+ condition.

Nice example. Less than $600 and I really like the smooth targets. Not perfect has honest wear but in great condition. Serial # N2698XX.

Do those diamond targets have the serial number stamped into them?

I love hearing of numbered Target stocks...and they usually show up with the early HP's

Default 28-2 with no pinned barrel?

I've just put what I thought was a 28-2 on layaway and the gun just seems flawless, apart from a rather dull finish which I expected on the 28. After rolling the cylinder out and verifying it's a 28-2 I noticed that there seems to be no pin for the barrel, yet it DOES say 28-2 on the frame. Also, the serial # is N95xxxx. What am I supposed to make of this?

Costabro:

Welcome to the Forum. One thing you will hear a lot on the forum is "that with S&W, there are no absolutes". The 28-2 ran from 1961 to 1982, and while theoretically the 28-2s were all "pinned and recessed", and the pin didn't go away til the 28-3s, it would not surprise me to see one with out the pin, especially near the time that the change was going to occur.

We love pictures...perhaps you can post a couple of photos for us to examine. Is the cylinder counter bored? (Recessed)....

By the way, I am no expert, but there are many on the forum, and someone who knows much more than I do will be along soon, I'll bet!!

Best Regards, Les

I have a 6' 28-3, no recesses and no pin, serial number N957xxx, sold to the first owner in NJ July 23 1983. I will post a picture just below. It is one of 4 I have and the best shooter. Incredibly accurate. I think there are fewer of the non pinned around and they are found to shoot very well. Your is from the same year and smack in the transition.

Default Smiths want to play

Keeping this great thread alive:
Since I found a love for the model 28, here is what I have accumulated recently:
Top to bottom:
N151xxx: 4'' Bought extra mint, no box as Wife's birthday gift, she got into it and loves shooting it on a pachmayr gripper
N294xxx: bought unfired, no box, will keep a collector/backup just in case
N563xxx: Bought unfired, it had no box, but was rather rusty. I bought it as a project gun - soaked it in kroil, flitz and other things, kept a layer of RIG grease on it for a while and it came out great, smoothest action and my weekly shooter, I am loving this one the most.
N957xxx: On the camo grip: Marked 28-3, extra mint when I bought it, all boxes and warranty card filled out June 28 1983 at Ray's Sports Shop in Bound Brook NJ. My first model 28 I bought in Feb this year. A very accurate shooter as they all are.

Last not least the 25-2 wanted to come out and play as well. N458xxx, full boxes papers, 6 1/2'' barrel in presentation case.
