    S&W Model 19 is a .357 magnum. When looking at used guns, one doesn't always have the choice of barrel length, you strike when the iron is hot. However, 4" is pretty darned handy for a general-purpose .357; personally, I think the K-frames looks more balanced with the 4" barrel than the longer tubes.

    Azchevy, that sure is a purty one. Kicking myself for passing up a 19 almost as nice as yours a couple of years ago. I was in a pawn shop back in CT and I foolishly told myself I didn't want the hassle of an out-of-state transfer. Dumb, dumb, dumb.

    To the OP, congrats on a fine pistol. Looks to be really nice. I bought one recently as well. Same time period as yours. Enjoy it!

    Better to let someone enjoy it than sit and collect dust.

    Shot like a dream. Work of art, best purchase I have made this year.

    Shot accurately with whatever I could load for it, and I brought quite a few recipes.

    Good read for you.

    I have always wanted a "combat magnum" and have no desire for a handgun with a 6" barrel, I would rather strap on a rifle.

    It pales in comparison to this 19. I love blue.

    Thanks, azchevy. I think the 19 is the perfect-looking revolver and I am disappointed to see that it has been discontinued. Hopefully, S&W brings it back with all the recent advances in metallurgy.

    Although I just started getting into shooting, and don't even own a firearm, I think a 4 inch revolver (like the 19) looks perfectly balanced. The full underlug of the 686 makes it look unwieldy. But that 7 round capacity in the Plus versions is very nice.
