    I found one of these in excellent condition. I'm not familiar with S&W revolvers but was told NYSP stands for New York State Police it has recessed cylinder chambers pinned barrel and was made ca. 1978. Is there anything I should look at closely before making a purchase? I want to use at as .38 Special range gun. Thanks.

    The N frame .357 is a tank, almost a shame you plan to shoot it with .38 Spl. Make sure the finish is OK, look at the crane and how the pieces fit together. Cock it and pust the hammer forward, it should not drop. To be honest I'd really have a gunsmith check it over.

    I have reloaded 357 cases to 38sp data and they work great.
    You will find the m28 to be very much to your liking.
    The ones I have fired had great triggers.

    Great info in the link. Also - check for peening on the cylinder notch edges. Rapid firing is usually the cause.
    The revolver pictured is a 28-2. (The illustration was originally used to show a defective/damages case.)
