    Looks great but I also liked it before too, but then again I got big ol' gorilla hands.

    Yeah. I don't have that problem.

    O.K., that's it. That will have to be my next revolver. One day, oh yes, it will be mine.

    Looks Great and fits the purpose well now.

    I have my woods gun 28 set up a bit similar.
    It is square butt so I used smooth modified magnas and a tyler T grip.

    I got to do my part also

    Not knowing S&W model numbers, is that a .357 Mag?

    Yep model 28 Highway Patrolman, a no frills N frame .357. The 27 is the glossy purty model.

    Basically S&Ws have J (small) K (medium) and N (large). With a medium/large called the L frame for mostly the 686/681/581/586 .357s

    X frames are the huge ones for .500 S&W magnums and the like.

    Small snubby-like or with 3"/4" bbls .38s like models 442/36/63 and the like in .22/.32/.38 and some even in .357 these days I believe.

    Medium K frames usually models 10/12/13/14/15/19/65/66 in .38 Spl and .357s

    N or large frames models 27/28/24/25/29/57/58 add a 6 and they are stainless steel models.


    Many more and lots of variations/special runs I can't begin list or remember, but basically in a nutshell that is it.

    The S&W forum and others are a good place to get deeper into all the models.

    Ask Weatherby, he probably has at least one of any S&W model you could want to know about. :guns::guns:

    Sweet! I like the way the fiber optic front stands out on my 22 Ruger and after seeing yours, I might just try one on one of my Smiths.
    With the style holster you have, you don't have to worry about snag. :worthy:

    I like it. I think that even I could hit a mountain with that.

    A mountain gun is on my bucket list, I need to just get one bought before they cost as much as my truck...

    I think you would be much better off with an L (686) or N framed (27/28) S&W .357 with the kind of loads you like to put through your guns. K frames are basically on a frame designed for a .38 Special and pounding from heavy magnum loads especially the high pressure 125 SJHPs can accelerate wear on them much sooner than a L or N.

    Cops carried model 19s fer years and years because of their lighter weight and fired many rounds through them, was some debate about just how much they could take before needing the attentions of a gunsmith/armorer.

    SD, hunting, or both?
