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...

A 3" and a 5" remain on my wish list.

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!
