Something interesting. I was in a nearby gunshop the other day and noticed a recent S & W box on the shelf in the back. It contained a very nice condition Model 28 (approx. 99%) with correct grips and paperwork. I then checked the box and it was the correct serial #, grips, etc. I thought that it was worth trading for. I then opened the cylinder/yoke and noticed that it was labeled as a Model 29. Directly below this was the same serial number as everything else. It appeared unmolested and original. It appears to me that Smith and Wesson apparently intended this frame to be for a Model 29, but possibly, when an order needed to be filled, the already-labeled frame was used to factory build a Model 28? Curious, but by the time the owner of the shop came back (next day), someone had scarfed it up, apparently not even realizing this important tidbit of information. Curious, though. Any thoughts?
