Hay guys, two days ago I saw a 19-3(I think -3 P&R) looked unfired 2.5" nickel with bone grips at a local gs. I was shocked to see a 1,300 sticker wow, what's so special? Or did I pass up something special?
Good luck bananaman

Can you post a picture of the box label? That looks like a smooth combat trigger (.312" wide) and the standard hammer. The grips have been altered also.

That is a nice looking M66.

Just a heads up my pre 1970 nickel 19-3 with blue pinned ramp base is a 6" with Baughman FS blade

I have seen only one pre 1970 nickel 4" 19-3 with blue FS ramp since 2011 but it was a total roach so passed on purchasing it....

Recent acquisition... essentially it was a gift. Never owned a 3" K Frame before though I've wanted one. You can't see the magna ports in the pic but they exist. Maybe you'll notice the black front ramp or the factory bead blasted finish... I'll tell you it came with really chunky laminated rosewood combat grips. I'll also tell you it has a square ejector star and the action is superb. I was told it was factory action. Hmmm... what did I get here? Why is mine slightly different from the other -3 and -4 models? Well, through the good folks in this forum, I've discovered I've got a somewhat rare item. It is a 66-4 built in 1996 for RSR group as 1 of 500! Fortunately it's not in collector grade condition and for that I shot the hell out of it. Magnums, wadcuttersThe ultimate Model 19/66 Combat Magnum thread, balls, hollowpoints... I absolutely love this gun and would tell anyone they need a 3" K Frame. Regards...

Picked up this 19-3 today after the 10 day wait in CA.

Pinned and recessed. Target grips, hammer, and trigger.

The trigger pull is excellent. I really wanted a 2 in or 4 in but this one is so nice, and I can't seem to find the shorter barrels locally.

Had to drive an hour each way twice to purchase and pickup!

Mine looks like everyone else's (4") but I really love this vantage point. Even from this view, the craftsmanship blows my mind.

I have two Model 19's left after selling one to a co-worker.


My favorite handgun I own. A 19-2 that was made within months of when I was born.







And a 19-5 with a set of awesome smooth RB targets. It was the grips that caught my attention, even more so than a 4inch RB. I expect that it started life as a 2.5inch, maybe someday I will letter it and see. ETA: I lettered it and it is a righteous 4inch RB. Sent to the State Department to be used by embassy guards.

My first combat magnum. Can't believe I waited so long. After a bit of cleaning I installed a set of magnas I had. Now it fits me.

Reminds me of one of my husband's coworkers coming across a guy with a blue 6" barely fired 29-3, he said he just wanted enough to pay his electric bill, which was $200. Still jealous.

Just stumbled across this thread, and thought I'd share a pic of my only remaining 19. It's a 19-4 wearing a set of Ken Driskill;s awesome stag grips with an old Tyler T. Great handling and accurate too!

Mr Moderator: When I try to post a quick reply and Go Advanced so I
can post photos I get a bunch of previous photos instead. Is something

Sorry to be so tardy, but here is my 2 cents worth before it's too late.
My S&W Model 19-4 P&R. Got it new back in the late 70s but don't
remember exactly when. It has the 4" barrel and is shown with Herrett's
Jordan Trooper walnut stocks. In 2006 I sent it in to S&W and had the
action slicked up. They also installed the partridge sight with the McGivern
gold bead. Continuing on left to right, it is shown with some favorite
leather:

And here's my Virginia State Police 50th Anniversary (32 to 82) Model 66-1. With wooden presentation case. Number 194 out of however many they made.





I'm not sure if I've posted this one or not. A 19-4.

This is my recently purchased 66-1. Whoever owned it before me at some point had the action worked. It's soooooo smooth and light. Serial 60K3xxx. If my research on this forum is correct that would put it in early 1980 as it's born on date. It's my second smith and my first .357

Default S&W 19-3

I purchased this 19-3 a few days ago from a german dealer. Not much fired but dirty. not so bad for 500,- i think.

Pretty much a steal around here. It's hard to find one in any condition for less than 6 bills. Hard to find one at all!

Yes, but it was 500,- Euro here in Austria, so say $600,-

Now I received my 19-3, had looked better in the dealer pic´s. There are some scratches on the side plate from a „Bubba-Job" ( they tried to pry the side plate loose with a screwdriver or so)
There was also an issue with the cylinder stop, every couple of trigger pulls the hammer won`t cock.
At this occasion I replaced the rebound-,cylinder and mainspring. Problem solved, now the action is smooth as butter.

Georg-

Is there a good selection of .38 Special and .357 Magnum ammunition in Austria?

Is there provision for licenses to carry a handgun, or are you limited to target ranges?

@Texas Star
there is just a limited selection of .38/.357 ammo like magtech, geco,S&B and maybe Remington to buy.

ccp is almost impossible to get, so we are limited to range use.
