New to me S&W 19-4
 
I have been looking for a new bullseye gun for the upcoming season and I have found that I shoot K frames better than L frames(I currently use a 686). I came across a smoking deal on this beauty.

Its a 19-4 6" Pinned and Recessed model. It has the wide trigger and hammer(I have heard these referenced as Target hammer and target trigger, dont know if thats right). I bought it from a local gunsmith who is a bullseye shooter and runs a pistol range. He slicked the action on it, put new springs in it, and basically let it sit on a shelf for several years. I added the rail and an Ultra Dot to it for competition.

I have already taken it out and practiced with it and can already see improvement. It has me excited for the start of season. I am already a good shot(My high is a 281 on the 300 pt National Match course of fire, avg of 275) so improvement will be wonderful.

Sorry for the crappy pic, its a cell phone camera, and not a good one.

Nice revolver, I'm surprised that it sat for so long-- those don't last a week in my area.

It didnt sit on a shelf for sale, it sat on a shelf in his personal safe.:cool:

When he decided to sell it I just happened to be in the right place at the right time and snagged it.

Very nice find! It would not surprise me if you end up a bit better with the Model 19 as opposed to the 686.

The mdl 19 sure does sit nicely in the hand, doesn't it????


Congrats on a GREAT revolver!!

Good choice. My old 6 inch barrel model 19 is very accurate. In fact today it's far more accurate than I am.

Years ago (before I got those over age 70 eyes) I was at the range one day shooting. I was using a standard 25 yard bullseye pistol target. I had set two of them up at the 100 yard line. I was the only one on the range. I was using iron sights and of course full house 357 ammo.

I fired 6 rounds from a sandbagged bench rest at the first target. Just then a friend of mine drove up. My friend came over and I asked him to wait a minute while I fired 6 rounds at the other target. I used a standing position, two handed hold, and of course single action.

After I fired, we went downrange to check my target, and post new targets. My friends eyes almost popped out when we looked at the first target and there were six holes, all in the black of the target. I explained that target was fired from a sandbagged rest.

We checked the other target and there were also six holes in it. They were in the circles, but they weren't all in the black.

I hope so! I am already shooting at the top of the league, but there is still room for improvement. I would like to shoot a 290 this season, hopefully I get there with this setup.

Yes they do. Its funny, the 686 and M19 have the exact same grip, but the balance and overall feel is totally different. The m19 simply points and shoots better in my hands than the 686 did.

Thats some great shooting for 100 yard shooting! Its a testament to what those old Smiths can do!

I'd be interested in viewing pics of your competition revolvers to get an idea of properly equipped guns that metamorphose Philistinism aesthetics. A person with a red scooter avatar that proclaims "Chicks dig it" should easily provide a learning moment for the forum and stamp-out any inclinations of utilitarian attributes.

You have obviously never been to a bullseye competition!:rofl:

As far as a Philistine, I choose to compete with a revolver because of the challenge, most cant shoot DA the way you have to to be a bullseye shooter. I definitely have a love of the revolver.:wavey:
