Hey, DM. How did you come across a .25-20 and how can I find one? :)
If you want one, and want it done "right", you have to do what i did, gather up the parts, and have a master pistol smith put it together for you...

The Dash is the 6th rendition of the model.
Yours has the firing pin in the frame and the 657-1 would have the firing pin on the hammer for example. As the gun is changed any the dash goes up.

Common knowledge, DAT19K, try any of the many S&W forums online. They're techiquically called Engineering changes.

No offence taken, just explaining? Sorry if I said something to upset you.

thank you mcwoodduck, where did you find this info?
I have a bunch of S&W guns. I have had a few, some at the same time, multiple of the same models and you can see the older ones that are pinned and recessed have lower dashes than later models that are not pinned, and then some that are with out hammer pins that are even later - numbers.

My 1st. Model 28-2 mfg 1973
Is the first a First S&W
or is the first a first Model 28 with the hopes and plans to buy more 28's as they are a great revolver?
Either way congratulations on the purchase.
Check out some local gun shops and see if you can find a pair of the large target grips, either checkerd or smooth.
Makes the gun easier on the hand with the hot magnum loads.

My 1st Smith owned. Changed the grips out and like the way it feels and shoots. The 1911 may get put away once I get a good carry holster for this.

"Da guvna" what my grandson call it.

Here is the only S & W I currently own. Bought it out of meanness to pick at some judge owners, but fell in love with it. Shoots 45 LC, 45acp, or 410 shotshells all in the same cylinder if you want to. Groups well at fifty yards and even does good with buck shot out to 25 yards
