    Cool old gun. Good luck.

    I also wondered if it has a 27 barrel. Pretty neat either way.

    One of my few regrets in this game is passing up on one when the NYSP was selling them off. So yes, I'd like to have one.
    Good luck!


    (28's were the canary in the coal mine for postwar Hand Ejector prices for me. In the Nineties they went for a song compared to other N-frames because of their "budget" nature and consequently I turned my nose up at them because 27s were so shiny. In the early '00s when they started bringing double and more of their Blue Book value, that was my clue to start rounding up the wheelguns I really wanted, because the days of Smith collecting being "Colt Collecting, but for Poor People" were obviously numbered.)

    I can explain it to you. I canít understand it for you.

    Would it help or hurt your goal to ask the seller about the non original #27 barrel ?

    I have be looking for a well used 6 inch model 28 to have the barrel cut down to 3.5 inches for a shooter.
    Hope you win that one!

    P.S. That looks like a German proof mark on the barrel .

    Iím hoping that bidders take a look of it, and pass it by because of the barrel.
    If you're going to call the tune, you'd better be able to pay the band.

    The fact that it is a M27 barrel might be a selling point. To my mind, fitting a 3.5" M27 barrel is a far better option than cutting back a factory Model 28 barrel. Cutting either the 6" or 4" M28 barrel to 3.5" results in either the need to polish off the existing barrel markings, or live with them being cut through and unsightly. It would also require a new barrel ramp and front sight. Depending on how much you have to pay to get a 3.5" M27 barrel, having one fit could be significantly less expensive than properly shortening a Model 28 barrel.

    Hope you win, appears it might be a "re-import" based on that marking on the crane.

    Probably shot very little like most overseas police guns.

    Every time I have gone for a 3.5" M27 I got crushed by the more serious collectors, but they may ignore this one because they don't care so much for the M28 most of the time.
