    I bought this last night, and it has a little bit local of history. It was carried the last two Chief Deputies of the Oconee County Georgia Sheriff's Office. I bought it from the current Chief Deputy, who bought it from his predecessor, who had bought it new.

    It's 28-2 in 4" with a five digit N- prefix serial number, N743** . It's been carried a good amount, but not shot too much. It currently has a Wolff reduced power main spring and hammer return springs, but he gave me the original factory springs in case I want to reinstall them.

    nice S&W

    Very nice pistol and neat to have some history with it. I bought this one with 5 3/4 inch BBl a few months ago and carry it in a Galco shoulder holster. No wonder a lot of the Troopers *****ed about going to 9mms.

    The Model 28 Smith is a fine revolver. My first duty gun was a Smith Model 27 5" Barrel. I have one of them to this date as a keepsake and I love to shoot it. That 28 you bought is a nice piece!!! The N Frame is hard to beat! From the picture looks like the 3" version?
