Default Model 19s at todays event.

Still considering may self an amateur, the model 19 guns got past me.........I didnt think about it much until I saw todays posts here about 19's.......

I looked at at least 8 today, blue & nickle.......long & short barrels.......most were pinned, not sure about recessed.....several in boxes. I failed to note the caliber too.

Are these N frame -2 guns????????

There were 100 or more S&W guns of various configuration at this event, I suppose all models were represented, were even a bunch of current mfgr. Was shopping other things today & my knees were killing me!!!!!

Model 19's are K frames and are "normally" chambered in .357 magnum (which means .38 Spl is perfectly fine to use, as well). I say "normally" because I am not certain if there are Model 19 variants that are chambered in .38 Spl only.

They are fine revolvers. I hope you get to check them out again. What were the prices? And what event was this? Sounds like my kind of event

As mentioned in a previous post , educate yourself first, then you will enjoy shows alot more . It's hard to recognize a deal , or even appreciate a fine firearm if you don't know what you are looking at .
That's not meant as a jab to the op, just stating a fact . Same holds true for any show, car show, coin show , gun show, it doesn't matter .
You should feel a shot of adrelalin right in the gut as you pull in to the parking lot . If you don't get that feeling , you might be in the wrong hobby .
Sort of reminds me one time many years ago we went to the Mopar nationals like we often did , and a friends "rich"uncle flew in 2,700 miles and then rode up 400 miles with us .
His plan was to buy some Hemi cars . Surrounded by 4,000 Mopars, he gets bored 2 hours in and proclaims he is thinking about leaving and going to see a movie. Obviously it wasnt his cup of tea .

Exactly correct on both counts!

It's hard to know if you getting a good deal if you don't know what you are looking at and what it's true value is. Many sellers, private and dealers, don't know what they are talking about!

I've owned guns and been in the lobby for almost 47 years and I STILL get happy about going into a gun show and/or a shop. A lot of the thrill is the chase!

The chase and the trade, I might add

If your able to id advise you to go back there today and pick one up. They are great revolvers. They are good for carry, home defense, target shooting. You really can't go wrong owning a model 19. I have two, a nickel 2 1/2" and a blued 4". Both are 19-4, pinned and recessed. Seriously go back and check them out again.
