    I only have model 27s, so I am not certain, but I do not believe that target triggers or target hammers were factory options on a Model 28.

    I know that the 27’s finish is a lot better. I have always thought(imagined?) that the 27 has a smoother action, but I may be delusional. In my opinion, the serrated rib on the 27 looks a lot nicer than the plain matt ribon the 28.

    I have 28 4" pinned and recessed. No way I would get rid of it. I put the magnas in a drawer and bought some smooth herret stocks. I do not like checkering on revolver stocks, or rubber, or finger grooves, or lasers, or medallions, or ranch dressing.

    The Model 28 was my first handgun, sold to me by a Baptist minister FFL holder in Kentucky.

    It is a big, ugly, brute of a revolver that will always, ALWAYS go bang.

    Shoot the thing at night with full power .357 loads and watch this amazing flame come out of the muzzle.

    I had rubber Hogue grips on mine foe amwhile...beat the hell out of my hand. Went back to the stock grips.

    Frankly not my favorite piece to shoot but would take nothing for it.

    It's funny a few hours ago I was thinking in trading my 28, I'm keeping it now. :rofl:

    I bought a LNIB 28-3 a couple of years ago. Don't think it had ever been fired. I paid around $500. Now, if I could only find a target trigger and hammer for it.

    The most accurate shooting I ever did was with a 6" Model 28. Sadly I was forced to sell it during a period of unemployment in my youth. I really wish I had that pistol back.
