And they want $499. Yep a pawn shop.

No box but it does have those big target S&W grips.

And here I sit with some vintage presentation grips...

So if it is tight, not a scratch on it, is it worth it?

Thanks.

Yep, that's a $650-700 gun just about anywhere that knows what they're worth. That pawn shop obviously doesn't. Get it!

Put it this way...
I paid $413 plus tax for a no-dash 4" M19 with holster wear and rubber Pachmayrs on it.
Would I pay $86 more for one that is near pristine and had a set of nice target stocks on it?
You bet your behind I would, IN A NEW YORK MINUTE!
I would probably dislocate my shoulder reaching for my wallet.

4 years ago, I got a pristine, and I mean pristine, 19-2 4" barrel for $249. $263 out the door. Pinned and recessed. Factory diamond target stocks numbered to the gun. Shot 18 rounds out of it and cleaned it. Sold it for triple my money 6 months after buying it. And I still miss it.

I'm a little surprised you had to ask on this one. I hope these other replies got you to go and get it. Need some photos when you get it home.

Ok... ok... I'll go back tomorrow, super check it for any flaws.

If good to go, I'll grab it.

Oh, sadly many years ago I had one, I think a 19-1, 4 inch ROUND BUTT model. Yes the RB had groves in the backstrap. Dang I wish I had kept that one.

Look it over good. Ask to remove grips. If original finish with no reworking marks the price is a great one. If it has been redone try and get it for a little less.

There is something about a blue K frame 19 that I tend to shoot better one hand groups than an L or N frame. Not by much but it has the edge.

Ok. Went back. Very thorough check. Locks perfect, no wear, fantastic blue. Just an itty-bitty bit of white paint on the front sight (just paint, it will come off easily.)

Bore was fine. Has trigger stop to boot. Just maybe fired a few shots. No end shake, crane shake, cylinder shake. Just, well, great.

I plunked down $100 lay-away, brought my own gun case, oiled the gun, and it sleeps there.

Let you folks know when I git it out of hock.

I really like Threads like this. DUH, buy the thing and turn it over for a modest profit. Best

Well it was $542, tax inc. but NO I will not turn it over for a 'modest profit'. That's illegal (ATF rules.) I'll keep it for years. Maybe in my old age I'll then sell it, or if I kick the bucket, the kids get it.

But I don't 'flip' guns.

Me either. Not that I'm so worried about the ATF, but because I only buy guns that really interest me. I may decide later that they are not a good fit for some reason, and if I can make a good trade or sell them for good money I will. But mostly I want to use them and hang on to them.
