Got this last month. 686 Plus.
One that is so nice that three other all steel snubbies died of lonesomeness so I sold them.
Here is a 5-screw Highway Patrolman (a pre-28) that was one of the first sold when S&W started making them. Some guy bought it and put it in a closet (unfired with a perfect box and all docs). His widow brought it to a gun shop, and it then came to me (they knew what it was). It is lettered to 5-18-1954 #S106xxx
9mm Taurus. Very functional. I picked it up for two reasons. 1) wrist snapping the cylinder closed is a manly thing you have to do at least once in one's life. 2) SHTF a 9mm wheel gun eats for a long time when other rounds run out and less to break.
Outstanding! Love me some ‘S’ (prefix) serial numbered N Frames!!
A couple of 686-3’s

Damn those are nice.
ok @Dwe ....where the F are you finding those grips!!! I have been looking for some good wood grips with those large finger grooves for my 686.....
Those are factory original S&W combat grips -- made in the '80s and '90s, then phased out. Command a premium now. They're gorgeous and if the position of the finger grooves plays nice with your hands, they're superb. Culina Grips makes an excellent version if you don't want to go hunting around eBay for originals...
This S&W 27-1 3 1/2" is one of my best home defense revolvers, and a good carry weapon.
It dates back to 1962.
reminds me of my cap guns when I was young playing the Lone Ranger.
Same 28-2. I love this gun.
She’s a beauty, Gary! I have a 6” Highway Patrolman, and always wanted a 4” M28! Love it!
Thank you sir. It is one of my favorite guns.
