Default New to me NYSP 28-2

Just got this 28-2 from member “moosedog” yesterday N545291. Only number on the inside of the grips is Sharpie “681”. Probably someone’s badge number so his gun would come back from an armorer with his nice grips. Just a guess. Great gun. It has the red ramp/white outline sights. It also has a wide target trigger, not the smooth “ranger” trigger. I’m having it lettered. That should tell if that trigger came with the gun or if someone substituted a serrated trigger for the smooth one. In any event, this old girl and I will spend some range time together soon. Thanks again Leonard.

Well, I brought home my first Highway Patrolman, Model 28. SN 200930, which makes it late ‘59 or early ‘60. A little holster wear at the muzzle and a bit of a turn line, which doesn’t bother me because I plan to use it as God intended! It came with the matching magnas, but while they actually felt pretty good in my hand (most magnas don’t- I’m a Tyler T guy), the 28 felt a little muzzle heavy. For the range I have a set of Nill “cokes”. I paid $700, which I figure isn’t great but isn’t bad either. The single action is fantastic and double action is heavy but VERY smooth. Anyway, I’ve read every page of this thread and am proud to be a member of the Highway Patrol club!

I guess a 'blurry' pic is better than 'no' pic.

Default Adding my 28-2 to the list

Bought this 28-2 with target hammer and trigger on Gunbroker for around $450 several years ago. Don't recall what grips it had on it, but I installed my Herrett Jordon Troopers. Back in the mid 1980s, a detective I worked with at the Sheriffs Department had a 4 inch model 66 with Jordon Troopers and they felt so good in my hand I just had to order a set. Sent in my hand print and a few weeks later they arrived. Steve Herrett was still running the company back then. Put those grips on my 4 inch model 29 and found out no matter how good they felt in my hand, they beat the bone at the base of my thumb without mercy. These grips now reside on 357 caliber guns only.

Haven't shot this yet, but I will. It is a 28-2 with an early N serial number. looks to be unfired outside of the factory.

Talk about impulse buys--- a buddy and I stopped by an area pawn shop today, it has a great reputation for finding great guns. he was looking for a 10mm pistol, I was just there to window shop and maybe look for a Walther P-38. There were two P-38's there, one had no armory markings, the other was a Walther but had a super-short barrel. Anyway, next to the case with the Walther was another case full of wheel guns, and two immediately caught my attention. The first one was a Model 66-2 with a 6" barrel. It must have been a late -2 model, it had neither a pinned barrel or recessed cylinder, but otherwise was a beautiful pistol. I wanted a pinned/recessed example of any S&W I might find. So, I looked at the second gun; it was a Model 28-2 and the only marks on it are the line on the cylinder from the locking lug rubbing it. It is also a 6" barrel, and has the target trigger and target hammer, but had the smaller grips, which look kind of funny on such a large revolver.

I have a really nice M19-3 with a 4" barrel, so either revolver would make a great companion for it. I used to have a M66-1, sold it years ago, so I was tempted to replace it with this 66-2, but then I thought, why not get a larger frame model to use my full-magnum handloads for. Time to dicker. The store owner did come down some on price, not as much as I wanted, but I took the M28-2 anyway. No box. I won't say what I gave just yet, but I'd like to hear what you guys think. I'd also like to know as close as possible to when this gun was made. The SN is N1892--.
Pictures aren't the clearest, I'll get better ones.

Late edit: I was reading the first post on the thread, and if correct, the listed serial number ranges put the MFG date of my new toy in the year 1973. That makes it older than my 19-3 by three years or so. Sure would like to know its history, if a Statie actually carried it, how many bad guys bit the dust in front of it, etc., etc.

Thanks
