    I found the engraver's info. His name is George Turner from Cleveland, Ms. He is a WW2 vet and still engraving at 91 years of age.

    I've only bought 2 pistols in my life....1st was a 57 .41 mag. Not a Mountain, now they call it the 57 Classic. Wish I had never gotten rid of it....but its long gone now. Replaced it with a 28-2 .357 5". Its my carry gun.

    I love the model 28. A highway patrolman is another one on my list.

    You sir are obviously a man of good breeding, good taste, with a knowledge of fine handguns! 28 is my favorite Smith- hence my handle.

    SWO1 - I'm over there all the time! I wish I had the cash some of those guys have to splash around or for that matter, local shops with older Smiths in their inventories. Folks in my neck of the woods tend to hold on to their Smith revolvers but I have a local guy who will hold them out and give me first "shot".

    I'm thinkin serisouly about gettin a Model 60 or 626. Used ones around here are as scarce as hens teeth. I like the L frames as they are a little easier to carry. From what I have seen a good older one is still $5-600. If my shop ever gets one I can shoot it before I buy. Im first on his list.

    These are my S&Ws.The .357s were both my Dad's duty weapons.The mod. 28 has an Armaloy finish which he had done in the 60s,I recently bought a pair of factory grips to put back on.The 66 is standard,both are 4".
    The mod. 36 is a .38SP,his off-duty gun.
    I've had a few others over the years but these 3 I'll always have.There was another mod. 66,2",I gave that to my nephew a couple years ago.Gramps would be OK with that.

    Thanks,they all need some polish.But living in Fl,the choices of finish is great.No rust,ever.
    My Dad became a cop in 1960 and was issued a .38 by the city to carry.He bought the 36 for off duty for $60.
    A couple years later,after living with a worn out city issue,my Mom bought him the 28 for Christmas.$85.He sent it to Texas for the Armaloy,He thought it cost around $15 at the time.
    Prices seem to have gone up some in the last 50 years.
