"My first .357 was a 1972 or so S/W Model 28...huge heavy sucker. I put Pachmeyers on it when they first came and Parkerized it as well. I had finger gripped Zebra wood handles first....anybody remember those?"
The striped ones were probably Jay Scott grips, right?
If I recall the model 28 was originally made for the California Highway Patrol. Big N frame without the fancy polish of other Smiths. I thought they looked cheap back when they were made but now I think they're cool. Wish I had one!
