Smith and Wesson Model 27

smith and wesson model 28 2 serial numbers

Once you locate the serial number, then you are able to do some research and find out a little history on your gun. The only other problem I can think of is trying to wear one out, they will give you good service long after you deserve to have it. The old guns without the serial numbers are the ones that can be a little trickier. The new guns don't hold a candle to these classic well built older guns. Like all N-frame Smiths, they are very nice guns and worth having. Those extra numbers are assembly numbers. This site does not distinguish between models or calibers, just the S or N prefix and the number.

The serial numbers have no letters, it has a lanyard strap in the grip butt and Trade Mark is on the right side. I'll take the camera, shoot some pics and try to post 'em. Had it reblued and gave it to my wife for Christmas in 1996. There are also Patrolman's that have Serial Numbers that start with an 'S', and it seems the 'S' guns are more desirable. I will say the finish is about 98% and the grips about 95%. The M-28 is a work horse of a revolver. Since then I have shot just about everything including the kitchen sink through this revolver and it just eats it up and spits it out in short order.

Thanks for the quick responses. It's highly accurate and has a smooth, light trigger pull. I do like the idea of the grip adapter. I have decided to keep the trigger pull the way it came from the factory. The porting is aftermarket, too.

Smith and wesson highway patrolman 357 serial number Anyone have any info on it? That's a nice M28-2 you have there. Join us to discuss firearms of all kinds, gun accessories, legal issues and more. I guess we would really need to see pictures of the revolver to help you identify it. The Model 28-2 was never produced in stainless steel. If it's an S prefix Model 28 in 99% condition, 1K is about the going rate right now. In 1942, it gave way to the war time Victory model, most with the dull parkerized finish.

Jim read the numbers to me over the phone. I have found a website that talks about Post War N frame serial numbers. The first iteration of the Model 10 began in 1899, as the 1899 Hand Ejector. Rumors about the Model 28 were rife for many years, the most common being the allegation that the gun was not quite as good as the upscale model 27. Sorry, I had to research the grips to properly identify them.

Just picked up a very nice 28-2. Your completely products or services is created by using particular stuffs that for some reason include fantastic in addition to vogue. The N prefix serial number puts it after 1965. Highway Patolman which appears to be a Model 27 without being identified as so. If you post the first letter and three numbers of the serial number, I can look up the year it was made. The -2 version was made from 1961 until 1982.

Mine has one of the best out of the box double action triggers I have ever tried. If all that is true, and I believe it is, the gun could actually be unfired since leaving the factory. All the markings are quite intact, and the rust left no apparent pits, or at least none the bead blasting didn't hide. But they are quoted as to what a guns value is in this Forum. Soon after The Release of The Original.

Single Action requires the hammer to be pulled back and cocked each time. Right now I'm trying to locate a source of translucent plastic so I can install a sight insert in it. Late 1947 — Early 1948 S72,000 — S72,499………. It was considered their flagship model. Thanks everyone for the feed back and kind words. Andy Also, the Model 27 comes in highly polished blue or nickel whereas Model wesaon has a matt blue finish.

I believe all 28-2s are 3 screw models. Could anyone help with the date of manufacture? Once that is done, I'll have pretty much the same one I had 30 years ago. Late 1952 — Early 1952 S86,000 — S94,999……. I was not familiar with this model. I have shot this gun enough now that I kinda like the way it pulls. The gun is a Model 28-2 Highway Patrolman. Do have a digital camera and the software for the computer but just haven't fooled with it yet.
