English term or phrase: Model 278
In the following sentence, how would you correctly indicate plural for **Model 278**? "Both Model 278s have blades made from 42 HC steel."

We are talking about two knives with Model 278 being the name of the knife in question and I would specifically be interested in its usage in American English.
