Dan,

My first law enforcement gun was a 4-inch M-28 S&W that cost me $107.00 in 1970. The prices of old S&W revolvers has gone way up since the newer revolvers come with that lockout "child safe" gizmo.

At the last gun show in March, I saw unbelievable prices asked for Old Colt automatics and old S&W revolvers.

Adam

Prices do vary

I bought a new 4-inch Model 28 Smith & Wesson back in 1968 for $96.00. Still have it. I have told by heirs to never sell anything in my collection, just hold onto it which costs nothing. Good guns appreciate. All the best...
