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.

I put it in another thread, but figured it also belonged here.

[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

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