Just scored a new toy. S&W Model 19 with a six inch barrel. Wonderful trigger and nice balance. I won't get a chance two shoot it till the match on Saturday. What do you all think?

I've got a 6" Model 19-3 in nickle. The 19s are very sweet revolvers.
What series did you get ?

Watch them "Maggie" loads in that shooter. A friend shot a 4" M19 loose with Mag loads. It did take him about 3 months to do it at 50~100 rounds a week.

S&W rebuilt it and he settled for 38 Spec +P loads in mag cases after that. Real nice gun, always had 'em on my buy list, but never ran across one at the right time and price. Did pick up a M 66 however, but it's a shorty

Love that single-action trigger pull on Smittywessons! :bow:

Where are the pics Vince ?????? 19s are fine revolvers, I prefer L frames but I would not be upset if I were made to own K frame again.

This post is meaningless without pictures. C'mon Vince, we know you own a camera.

May 24, 2009, 22:35
Ok, ok.

May 24, 2009, 23:03
Nice piece vmtz. I think anyway. Crappy picture.
Your beer bottle looks to have been the focal object.
You can do better than that & the S & W deserves it, I'm sure.:wink:
Put the beer down & try again.

A 19, 6 inch was my first gun I ever bought back in the 70's. Outstanding gun. It was eventually destroyed in a house fire. I am a fan of all the K frame Smiths. Put a Miculek trigger rebound spring on that puppy and dry fire it much. Good buy. Enjoy it.

The BEER Looks good Vince, but it's tough to see the Pistol??

What Didja use one of them thar GHEY ASS Phone/Camera/Puter/Vibrator gadgets? :tongue:

I carried a S&W custom shop K19, 4" barrel for a while back in the day. I had her engraved with a replica of my NYSP shield. Outstanding weapon!

Hey Vince,

That M19-4 wouldnt have some blueing loss in the cylinder flutes, a spot below the cylinder on the port side, and slight muzzle wear?

I traded a M19-4 at a small local gunshow in N. AZ about 4 weeks ago, I got a Rem 504 .22, 6 mags, scope, and rings for it. I really like the 504, if I close my eyes I cant tell the differance between it and my M-700 Mnt Rifle.

I only traded it because I bought a 4" M66-2 at a little show 2 months ago. :biggrin:

Careful with the hot magnum loads, especially the light bullets. Forcing cones are a weak spot on the K-frame magnums and have been known to crack under heavy mag ammo useage and I understand Smith has no more K-frame mag barrels to replace a broken one with.

K-frame magnums were intended to be carried a lot and shot moderately with heavy loads. With sensible loads it'll outlast you.
