Good looking M28. Good looking grips. What brand are the grips?

The stocks are Altamonts.

If you want a very comfortable grip with a more classic look, I can't say enough good things about Culinas.

I have a set of his Coke Bottle Targets on my M27-2 and a set of his Magnum Profile Cokes on my M57 no-dash and they're excellent.

That's a nice addition, I passed on one years ago and have regretted it every day after.

very nice

The Highway Patrolman, the M28, is a grand revolver and a great example of the way things used to be. Though I certainly appreciate the M27 and its elegance, but there is something appealing in the all business, work horse look of the M28.

Yours seems a particularly good example.
