Default Cleaned up my Highway Patrolman

I cleaned the old HP up and tracked down some info.
It's a true Highway Patrolman, not a Model 28.
It's a 4 screw.
Ser.# S120XXX
This dates it to mid 1956 or 1957. Still trying to narrow it down more.

The stocks aren't original. They're dated April, 1987. I'll track down an original set with the diamond eventually.

It's a great old gun with very little use, as indicated by the light cylinder ring.

That title sounded a little dirty.

What a beautiful revolver! It is awesome to see something other than a plastic, striker fired, autoloader. There are some firearms a guy can look forward to passing on to his chidren or grandchildren.

Let me make one thing clear, the Model 28 was also rollmarked "Highway Patrolman." That is, the gun didn't cease to exist as a Highway Patrolman when it was designated the Model 28. After implementing the new model numbering system, the original trade names were still in effect. Under the old model number system, the Model 27 and the Model 28 would have had the same model number.

I understand your post, just clarifying lest someone get the wrong impression.

Bob, I understand. Mine is simply marked Highway Patrolman. No model number.
They started putting the 28, with Highway Patrolman, not long after mine was manufactured.
I didn't know any of this myself until I actually got the gun and researched it.
It's amazing all the permutations S&W has produced.
