Default Smith & Wesson Model 19 2.5"

Came across a Model 19-3 with 2.5" barrel for $500 in a classified ad. Is this a good value for this revolver? I've seen many Model 19s with 4" barrels being sold for $600 or more.

Unless there is something bad wrong with it that is an excellent price on a 2.5”

Let me know where it is. I'll let you know it it was worth the $500.00.
Seriously, if you don't jump on it, I will.

Even before I saw your comment, I thought, "I'd jump on that!"

Hard to tell from the picture, but if all is good it is a great price for a very nice gun.

I have one and it one of my favorite revolvers and one nice carry piece in a simply rugged pancake holster. Who ever owned it before me had the trigger worked on and it feels like it has bearings in it.

Hope you get it, as others have said $500 is a great price for a pinned and recessed 2.5 inch Model 19 assuming it is in nice condition. I paid more than that for my 19-3 2.5 inch nickel back in 2011. At the last gun show I attended there was a guy wandering around with one and asking $950. Don't know if he sold it. Good luck.

That is one heck of a good price, don't let it get away if everything appears ok. Just bought a 19-4 nickle 2 1/2" barrel a couple week ago for $500.

I had a rough idea of what it was worth but had never done any serious research on prices. I was just in the right place at the right time and if I didn't buy it somebody less deserving would have. It wasn't until I got home and looked at completed auctions etc. that I knew how good a deal I fell into.

Did you find it on the 40% off rack? That's a steal.

I still have mine from my LEO days. It was my Plainclothes duty weapon. I know that back in the 1970's I paid almost that much for mine.

As pretty much everybody else said, assuming the weapon is in decent condition that is a good to outstanding price.

Magician seems to have vanished into thin air . Hope it was a legit deal.

Sounds like a good price for a 19 snub. There is one advertised locally to me priced at $550, and I thought that wasn't bad. Just had a little bit of blue loss on the muzzle from honest wear.

Just make sure it's mechanically sound.

Back in the 70's and early 80's most of us wanted either a 2.5" 19 or 66 for plainclothes assignments and off-duty. I had one of each (at different times, of course - couldn't afford both in those days). Great little revolvers, and highly sought after, especially by us old farts.
