S&W model 28-1

I have been told that the S&W 28-1 is a rare version of the model 28?. Is there any difference in the parts for repairs? I cannot seem to find parts that are listed for 28-1, only 28 or 28-3. Thanks for your help.

The "dash" numbers on S&W revolvers indicate a design or engineering change. In the case of your 28-1, the extractor rod was changed from a right-hand (on the "no dash" version) to left-hand thread; this was done in 1960 and was also done to most other S&W models around the same time. Other parts not involving the extractor rod from a "no dash" should work fine, as should virtually any parts for a -2 or -3.

With regard to rarity, the 28-2 came out in 1961, so it's probably true that there were relatively few 28-1s made. I'm not aware of any particular premium for the 28-1, though it's certainly true that some particular "-X" versions of various models are more desirable than others.

Thanks for the information

radom - I doubt you will find one for 199 now, its been a while since you bought that one. Thanks. FlyFish - Thanks for the information, I have had this apart and pretty much re-built it using 28 parts. The difference in the rod seems to make some difference in the ejector itself, at least it SEEMS that way. I had a real problem with getting it to close after replacing it. I noticed that the ratchet assembly looked different on the new one and the old one looked like it was in 2 pieces (star was seperate from gears). I finally decided it was the part itself and sent it back, I am waiting for a replacement. It looked as though they sent me a used part. Thanks again.
