Item Description

FIREARM HISTORY AND FEATURES:

The Smith & Wesson Model 19 is a double action/single action, 6-shot revolver chambered in .357 Magnum, built on the medium sized K-frame.
It was originally known as the “.357 Combat Magnum” and was produced from 1957 till 1999.
It was released in various modified and improved variants ranging from the 19-1 (1959) to the 19-8 (1999).
The stainless steel version, the Model 66, was produced until 2005.

The design of the Model 19 was heavily influenced by input from Retired Assistant Chief Patrol Inspector of the U.S. Border Patrol, famous gunfighter, and noted firearms and shooting skills writer Bill Jordan.
His idea for a “peace officer’s dream” sidearm was a heavy-barreled, four-inch, K-Frame .357 Magnum with a shrouded barrel and adjustable sights, which resulted in the design and production of the Model 19.

The Model 19 was standard issue to uniformed officers of the former U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service as well as Patrol Agents of the U.S. Border Patrol.

FIREARM CONDITION:

This gun is in fair to good (more on the good side) used condition. It is mechanically sound and functional.
The overall finish is quite good with some very light wear around the muzzle, a light drag line around the cylinder, and some extremely fine wear along all the edges of the barrel, frame, trigger guard and cylinder, but nothing very significant.
There are also a few very small, light patches of surface rust in places, but nothing very significant and can be easily removed.
The original wooden grips have been re-oiled and are in very good condition.
The cylinder lockup is still good.

FIREARM SUITABILITY:

This firearm is suitable for home self defense, but is perhaps a little large (heavy) for every day carry, unless for a large-framed person.

  • IDPA – Revolver division
