Nice one. Pretty wood. I'd guess 1975-76.

"I put a set of hogue monogrips on it..."

Oh, the humanity!!!!

Please do NOT post any photos!

You can send me those old target stocks since you don't want them.

I won't upload pics with the monogrips either.
No one will brow beat you for shooting it with the goodyears, many people do. But, we all know grandma wears underwear, none of us want to see pictures

well, the choice is YOURS ,BUT anytime one puts on any of them "rubber baby buggy bumpers" on ANY gun,make sure you keep them well oiled/greased, and check "OFTEN" under them as they do NOT absorb any moisture and will cause rusting underneath them....happens ALL the time.... ;)

Also, the resilient nature of elastomers used in Rubber Grips will not only trap and hold, but will press grit between the rubber surface and the blued steel.... each time a round is fired, under recoil this grit scratches the bluing just a little more.

When the rubber grips are removed what you will often find is a bright silver semi-circular outline of the grips shape cut into the bluing....

Just a tip....

I know I'm going to get hammered for this, but I don't care. I love blued Smith guns, have owned a bunch of them and used Hogues on all of them for shooting, and never had any scratches, rust or finish issues. If that's what works for you when shooting, then use them. JMO FWIW

I also have a 27-2 N frame in nickel which I bought at a gun show in the mid '80s. I am curious now about its date of manufacture. Can anyone help? Serial #N7900XX

Phil, welcome to the forum. It looks like your model 27-2 was shipped in 1980.
