I recently acquired a 6" nickel 27-2. It's a beautiful gun,BUT. The top strap is checkered as it should be. The barrel,however,is ribbed,no checkering. The only other N-frame .357 that I know of is the HP,but the bbl on mine is marked .357. No HP doo-dads. Your thoughts would be appreciated.

Just a tought, but are you sure there is no checkering on the rib? It's not the same checkering as on the topstrap. With the rib serrations sometimes the cross checkering on some guns is light and is hard to see. Run your finger, better yet fingernail, over it front to back and let me know what you feel. Just a thought as I have seen some guns that had very light cross checkering. Not saying it's there, but worth checking.
