In good condition, the value is bumping squarely onto $400.

Nowadays anywhere between $250 and $400. It depends on location more than any other factor it seems.

I'm moving your thread to Revolvers.

The model 28s are excellent revolvers, and being built in 72 means you get a revolver before S&W started cheapening the production models to reduce costs. You get a pinned barrel and recessed cylinders.

I've had a 28-2 for about 4 years now and wouldn't trade it for the world.

It's a working man's model of the venerable Model 27.

Is there anything in particular to look out for when picking up a revolver like this?
You say its worth about $400 but how easy would it be to resell at this price?
How can one "date" one of these revolvers?(date of manufacture)

Correct, those are not original grips, that's what prompted me to ask. Worth more with them.

The M28-3 didn't come out till 1982 when they did away with the P&R features.
