My S&W Model 19. I really like this gun. Double action only with a bobbed hammer.
Nice looking pistol
Usually when I post the picture in the first post someone politely tells me they think it is a 66. It really is a 19 that I had hard chromed. Here is a before shot. Same gun.
I let a nickel plated snubbie M19 slipped through my fingers and regretted it ever since.
Very cool indeed
Here's my only model 19, a 4" 19-3 from 1975 if memory serves. Been looking for the right 2 1/2" model 19 for a few years now.
Standard issue service revolver was a 4" nickel plated Mod 19. Really loved that gun before switching to a Model 66 then a Glock.
Is that a 3"?
Looks like a great carry gun
My first carry gun was a model 19 in nickel 4in barrel pinned and recessed. Had rr wo tt th. I sold it later around 1981 and always regretted it. About 10 years ago I found one just like it and in great condition, has been a safe queen ever since
I would love a nice 2 1/2" 19 some day. My wife prefers wheel guns and it would make a fine nightstand gun for her.
I had a nickel Model 19 2 1/2" that I got a good offer and let it go in 1984. Been regreting it ever since.
My Dad somehow claimed mine, bought it roughly 22 yrs ago, 2 1/2"
Thats a sweetie. Dad and i used to shoot a model 19 every Sunday afternoon when I was a kid. Loved it.
The 2-1/2" 19/66 always was a sexy revolver.
Yes that is sexy. Enjoy it.
Maybe this week I will pull mine out and snap some pictures.
My uncle has almost identical gun with regular hammer. He bought it in the early 60's, it's really nice, hardly fired. A few years back he got interested in a .44 special that Rossi 720 was marketing. He thought he needed more firepower and took it to a LGS and the guy graciously told him he would take the pristine model 19 and $150 in trade for a new Rossi 720 or $250 out right for the Rossi.
My uncle called me and asked if I would like to buy his Model 19 outright for $300 and I said sure, but why are you selling it and he told me about the Rossi and the offer the LGS had made him and I said NO! The Model 19 in its condition is worth a minimum of $400 alone if not quite a bit more and the Rossi is a big step down in quality and won't holds its value like the Model 19.
He said he wanted a hard hitting handgun and I suggested he go get some 158 grain rounds for practice or .38 spl FMJ and if he wanted something really hard hitting for self-defense, get some 125 grain JHP in .357 and that would more than be sufficient. I also told him not to give the Model 19 a steady diet of the 125 grain in practice but it would be more than adequate for self-defense carry And I made him promise if he decided to do the deal to bring the .357 to me and I would give him $300 anytime. So far he's hung on to it.
Very nice gun
