19-3 1K20XXX, 1970 production. It’s got some holster burns and scratches but is in about 90% shape. No box or papers when I got it, and it’s my EDC. 48 years old, who knows what it has seen, and still in service. Thinking about getting it lettered

Y’all seen the new 19-9 Classic? It’s like the new 66, two piece barrel, one is a 4” and one is a 3” K-Comp.

A 1979 4" 66-1, former duty weapon, lots of wear from carry, especially on the grips with a few dings here and there. Beautiful action/timing.

I know this is old, but I had to add this one at least.

Model 19-8, 38 Special Only.





According to SCSW 4, there was a run of 213 made in March of 2000 for distributor RSR. That's the only information I can find on them. A lot of speculation, but that's about it.

In spite of the fact that it's marked as a 38 Special, it will in fact chamber 357 rounds, but I don't shoot magnum loads anyway.

I'll add one more while I'm kicking this back up.

Model 19-9. The "classic" Model 19. Well, we can argue over rather it's a classic or not, but I look at it as "classic" in the sense of a medium, frame 357. The gun is changed from the sweep of the frame from the rear sight to the grip, and the two piece 4.2" barrel, to the cylinder lock-up system and of course the dreaded lock. They did also eliminate the flat spot on the bottom of the forcing cone that many saw as a weakness of the Model 19.







I haven't fired it a lot, but have fired a box of 357 ammo through it, and really liked the way it shot. If there is anything I didn't like, the grips are maybe a little too narrow for my taste. I won't change them, I like my guns to look stock and as I said earlier, I don't shoot 357 ammo often, so these should be fine with 38's.

Here is my 4Ē 19-3.

I swapped the football grips for S&W cut-outs because thatís what I like. Target hammer and trigger isnít necessarily my favorite configuration. I prefer the narrow serrated trigger, but itís fine like it is.



My 4Ē 66 no dash has the narrow serrated trigger that I prefer.

Me too. I like the target hammer though. Not sure why other than it just feel better when cocking. More to get your finger on. Which shouldn't matter to me because I mostly shoot DA.

I totally agree on the trigger. Thinner is more natural to me.

Default Models 66 no dash and 19-4 nickel

The model 66 no dash P&R is SN 4K1617x from 1973. The white outline black rear sight and case colored target trigger may have been owner installed? It has a yellow insert on front sight. The stocks have dark color very nice grain. Very good cosmetics, shoots fine, but well used.
My photo.

The model 19-4 P&R is SN 35K949x from 1978. Nickel plated, 98% condition, great lockup. No insert on front sight ramp. White outline black rear sight. Stocks are lighter color than the 66 and don't have as much grain. Left stock is relieved, if I understand the terminology correctly.
19-4 photo by the man I purchased it from.

I think about $325.00. A long wait, but worth it. Nice folks, so I'm sure they would like you to visit.
My revolver chrome finish was deteriorating from fifty years in a CPD holster. I am quite happy with the result.

Default Recent 19-3

After years of watching, I've finally joined the Model 19 club. Here is a 19-3 with some holster wear and some marks on the grips. It's a 7K38xxx serial, so it's likely 1974 or 1975 ship date. Any more info than that would be appreciated.

I've got a 19-8 and I think it's one of my favorites also. It, and yours are really nice looking guns. Mine is marked as "38 S&W Special Cartridge" on the barrel, but it does in fact chamber 357's. I've never fired anything but 38's and most likely won't. I've got a couple others for 357.

I posted about it in this thread earlier, but I had to comment because your's is about the only other -8 I've seen.

Here's a couple pictures of it with the Altamont "Ropers" I added since the original pictures.

Read thru many posts of guys collecting different 66's in regards to barrel lengths and dashes. Been thinking of trading/selling a 66-3 4"; Pachmeyer grips, no box or paperwork, but very clean, as I'd like to use it to finance another purchase. But after seeing these multiple 66 collections above I'm torn and would probably resent it after the new purchase. Around here, there sure haven't been many nice 66's for sale let alone any other than 4" or 6". Didn't have a 66-3, just a no-dash, that's why I picked it up. I've checked on GunBroker and comparable ones are ~$700 but to people ACTUALLY get that for them. At several gun shows here in IN, I've seen some 66, 19, 686 list for well over that! But wonder if they actually sell or just keep hoping they sell? Still on the fence whether or not to keep it in my collection or sell it if $ is right. Any thoughts wold be appreciated. Thanks.

Default Oddball

I had this 66-1 but unfortunately I let it slip away. It is an original 4" round butt special ordered by the Ok. Dept. of Corrections. Someone had done a great job of customizing it, probably to hide all the scars it received as a duty gun in a concrete jungle. Serial# ANS10**, I was told by someone here a couple years ago that it actually shipped out in the '90s.

But after seeing these multiple 66 collections above I'm torn and would probably resent it after the new purchase. Around here, there sure haven't been many nice 66's for sale let alone any other than 4" or 6". Didn't have a 66-3, just a no-dash, that's why I picked it up. I've checked on GunBroker and comparable ones are ~$700 but to people ACTUALLY get that for them. At several gun shows here in IN, I've seen some 66, 19, 686 list for well over that! But wonder if they actually sell or just keep hoping they sell? Still on the fence whether or not to keep it in my collection or sell it if $ is right. Any thoughts wold be appreciated. Thanks.
I think the market for revolvers is "softening" lately. Another user commented that sales on the forum here are slow and usually sell for less than the asking price. I checked the broker recently and a common model 66 auction sold for $600 or so. You can find many listed at very high prices, they're hoping for a buyer looking for their specific gun. I think the Pachmeyer stocks might reduce the desirability somewhat to a collector, but would be good for a person looking for a shooter. If you can do a great job marketing it and put it up as a no reserve auction, you might get a good price. As far as keeping it, depends whether you would be happier with that other item you are trying to fund!

Interesting gun, never saw one like it. I would like a 3" round butt 19 or 66 , but I guess they are rare and pricey. Is that a bead blasted frame and barrel?

Thanks for your insights Art66. I've seen a lot of private collectors at gun shows with outrageous S&W prices and not many buyers. Then I see them at later shows and they've got the same inflated prices on the same S&W ones I saw at the previous show. Think I shop this one around; it's a nice shooter but not a collector piece.

Bad photo of my recent LGS find. 4" 19-3. Has a little holster wear on the muzzle and high points on the cylinder, but the trigger is wonderful. $499.00 was too good to pass up. Came with a Bianchi leather holster and a trigger shoe that I removed and these wooden grips which I'm not a fan of, will probably replace them with some traditional Smith grips. If anyone can ID what these grips may be I would appreciate the info however.
