I hate to beat a dead horse. But my model 19-3 six inch just feels so good in
my hand. Please share some of your favorite K frames.

I'm kinda partial to this 66, especially the smooth targets.
(It might be newer then 1980)
Happy New Year to all.

So many to choose from. These three are kind of nice. A 1985 M19 Nickel and a 1982 M19 Snub followed by a 1963 M10-6 in Nickel.

I only have 2 - Models 66-4 and 19-5 - but they are great shooters and regularly find their way into my EDC rotation.

This 1972 M66 belonged to a Memphis policeman killed in the line of duty in 1982. I feel honored to now own it.

The Model 19 is one of the finest revolvers ever made, only eclipsed by the venerable Model 27.

Asking me to pick my favorite K frame is like asking me to pick my favorite child. I mean, sure I have one but I don't admit it in public!

Only because no one has shown one in this thread yet, one of my favorite K frames 16-3. Far from perfect cosmetically but a dream to shoot.

K is my favorite frame size by far. I have in the past given L N frames a try, but always come back to K.
My favorite has to be my model 17 made the year of my birth. Other than perhaps some sort of carry defense gun, it will stay with me as long as I live.

GS, I have a 19-3 that looks almost identical to yours. I certainly agree with you about just how good it feels in my hand and how much of a pleasure it is to shoot. In my opinion, the 19-3 and 19-4 are at the epitome of all S&W revolvers.

Here are 3 of my favorite K Frames, left to right:
Model 10-5 with bull barrel. Like Jim Cirillo's gun on the Stake Out Unit.
Model 67 (no dash) Combat Masterpiece with Spegel designed Uncle Mike
Combat Stocks.
Mode 19-4 Combat Magnum with Herrett's Jordan stocks, and
McGivern gold bead front sight.

After having numerous K frames in 4" barrel I finally tried a 6" model 19 . It is exactly the gun I will always keep . It is light weight and extremely accurate . It handles 357 magnum loads well . I don't shoot 38's in it , just 357 magnum loads . 13 grs of Accurate #9 under a 158 gr cast bullet is a real nice " shoot it all day load " in my model 19 . I have K frame target grips on mine .

When the dust settles this one will be known as the favorite.
It has the capability of making me look good.
A monumental task for sure.

A few of my K frames. Like the OP, the 19-3 6 inch just fits my hand so well that it is fun even with full load maggies on board.
Love the rest of those K frames too.

To carry on the Model 19 theme, this 19-4 belonged to the local police chief of Calhan, CO. Full target
