Yup. That was an "Armalloy" finish on a Model 19. The second round of photos showed a polished weapon.

Yeah...no ****!

Has anyone else considered the possibility that Kliev (or whatever) is the troll and that we, therefore, are the fish?

I still don't believe you, try the cutting torch test next.

Default 19-3

I just recieved my my letter from Smith & Wesson. It says that my 19-3 with serial # K7923XX left the factory on July 24, 1968 and shipped to American Arms Warehouse Inc. in Wareham, ma. This firearm was shipped with a 2.5" barrel, blue finish and checkered walnut round butt grips. The porting, current grips and the finish are aftermarket changes.

I have a Stainless Model 25, and Model 547, and the material analyses to Stainless. Yes the factory says Blue, but I’m sorry they are 100% Stainless. Roy saw them, and he only goes by factory letters.
That Model 19 is most likely stainless, you need to go to a company that buys gold and has a $5000 machine that can analyze and give you the results.

Over at Colt Forum a bunch of us think this company, Nitex, did the electroless nickel for them circa 1980-82. Some Pythons are lettered with the name Ed House of Nitex. So here's another guy doing this type finish in the 70s. Don't know if my electroless nickel Python was done by him, but check your finish against mine here. But then again, I haven't lettered this one to see if IT'S finish is original.
