Default Model 19 2.5" Nickle made with square butt?

I have a 19-3 6" nickle that is one of my favorite guns. I'd like to find a 2.5 friend to keep it company.

I've found a few nice 2.5" nickle guns but they all had the round butt on them. So, my question is if the square butt was even made on the 2.5" Nickle version.

To the best of my knowledge S&W did not make any 19's with a square butt for any barrel length less than 4", in any finish.

If you are lucky enough to find a 2-1/2" barrel for a 19, you could replace the barrel on a 4" (or longer) and you'd have a SB 2-1/2" 19.

Depending on the grips you want, you could use a set of RB to SB conversion grips.

SNW19 has it right; Just get RB to SB conversion grips.
Thats the cheap way to go. Don

Love my 19-4! It comes in second place behind my 3" 66-2 as my favorite S&W. They are both tack drivers for the snubby little sizes. Buy the 2.5". You won't be dissapointed!
Mine wears Ahrends RB's. Great grips for my hand size.

Thanks, Guys! I'll find a nice round butt and put the conversion grips on it or just learn to shoot the round butt.

Default Model 19 square butt

Here's one that was made post-factory...... I picked it up from a collector in Texas. According to S+W it started life as a 4 inch.

I have had a 2 1/2" 19 for over 30 years.

I am not a 357 Mag carry gun kind of guy, I bought it for Snubby PC Matches.

I must have been very lucky, as this 2 1/2" gun shoots as good at 25 yards as ANY custom PC gun I have ever fired.
And I have fired most of the top name PC Guns...

Sometimes I wish I was a 357 Mag kind of guy, as the 2 1/2" 19 is a sweet carry gun...

But alas... IF the Bore don't start with "4", I do not take it out the door...

Every 19 that I have in my collection is a great shooter. It's just about the "PERFECT" revolver and one great carry gun in 2.5 inch.

I really, really do not like round butt guns, but I fitted a 19 with 2.5 inch barrel with the pachmeyer grips and it is shootable.
