Besides the absolutely GORGEOUS pictures, you have given us an exceptional history lesson as well. I have three M-19s in my safe (one mine, two are my wife's), a 19-1, 19-3 and 19-5, and like Bill Jordan desired, this gun is the PERFECT size, weight, and balance for a .357 I have L-frames and N-frames but the M-19 just fits my hand like no other (even my Pythons). I hope you go and shoot it and give us a range report!

I am generally not a big fan of engraved guns but WOW this is fantastic as it is not 'overdone.'
Such a nice handgun, great find.

I spend more time in the old threads than the new. Still learning and admiring!
Jim is a good teacher! To say he pays attention to detail is a understatemet!

A true work of art as beautiful to me as a Rembrandt. Don't think my collecting will ever get to that level of style and rarity, but I am grateful for those of you who share your collection with us here.

Default Engraving Fixture

Nice to see pictures of engraving from in-house engravers at S&W. What I like is the picture of her actually engraving a frame using a fixture that I used in 1976 and for years after that. I have one of those fixtures and the wooden sideplate fixtures we used.

Awesome revolver! I read where Virginia LeBlanc passed in 2016 at age 102 and had worked as S&W engraver for 25 years earlier in her life, bless her heart.
