Default S&W Highway Patrolman

Here's a shot of my Highway Patrolman.
It's a true HP, no Model 28 on the barrel. About a1956 production, I believe.

When I got it (I'm the third owner), I had to find the grips. It had a set of mis-sized Pachymers.
And had to have the trigger redone. The original owner had bubba'd it. You could clock the hammer and place your thumb on it and the hammer would drop.
Now it has an original setup, and is still just light and smooth. A lot lighter than my Rugers.
It's a keeper.

Great looking gun. It deserves the factory grips. I can't stand when people put goodyears on a gun like that and pitch the hardwood. Glad you got the trigger sorted out. At home trigger jobs can be downright dangerous if someone doesn't know what they are doing.

Oh yeah, it was hairy. Grips and trigger job were less than $100 total. Well worth it.

That's a beautiful gun! I'm glad you got some nice grips for it, I've never understood why people put rubber grip on such a beautiful blues gun!

Yes. Where the hell does the wood go?
I can't believe anyone would toss them.

Yes Hoss, but you kept the wood. I guess a lot of times the wood gets separated from the gun when it's sold or passed down. I keep all spare bits together and well marked in the safe.
