    So I sold my j-frames.... this has made me forget all about them

    As you all know, after obtaining the Ruger LCR .357 and the 1970 Colt Cobra... I decided to sell what was collecting dust in my safe. My 340 and my 66.

    I totally offended the S&W gods so I decided to atone for my sins and I picked this up....

    S&W Model 19-5 4"

    From what I can gather it was made in Feb 1984 ( what is stamped under the grips) S/N ADSxxx - Maybe someone can help me out with that.

    Oh man this thing is a beauty and a perfect complement to my pocket snubs. Locks up tight, shot a little as evident by the light turn marks and no flame cutting or and cracks/issues with the flat part of the forcing cone. Original medallion grips and one fine looking girl.

    Picked up a nice safariland basket weave holster to hold her and I am good

    I twisted up some loads to try with her, C/W from top left.....

    FBI LSWCHP loads 158gr 38+P
    158gr LSWCHP .357 loads
    158gr Speer GD .357 Loads
    158gr Hornaday XTP .357 Loads

    I can't wait to work it out.

    and a 1911 and a bunch of other handguns I had no use for anymore "gasp"

    I could die tomorrow and what good are they sitting in my safe? I want weapons I like to shoot.

    I am not a stainless guy..... I like blued handguns

    Beautiful gun! Model 19 is on my wish list but don't know I'll ever manage one, unless I can find someone to trade me straight across for my Ruger Service Six. I really admire the lines of the "ol' 19".

    You can't beat the mirror finish on a Model 19. Mine is by far the best looking gun I own.

    That is a handsome revolver. Reminds me of the better years gone by, very nostalgic.
