Default 19-4 acquired in a trade

I recently picked up at 19-4 with a 4inch barrel. I had been looking for a blued S&W to have a shooter. Usually Iím a stainless guy but I think the older I get I have a desire for something more nostalgic and ďold schoolĒ I found a guy locally selling one for $600 or $650. I forget but I offered him a M&P 2.0 Compact 9mm as a trade and he jumped on it as he was selling this to fund one.

I met the guy and he flat out admitted he wasnít a revolver guy. He got it from a relative or something. The blued finish is in excellent condition. There are literally only a few marks here and there but you have to look. No wear at the barrel. Lock up and timing were spot on. I could not trade him fast enough. I know it was made between 77-82. I would have been between 5-10 years old so that was kind of neat. I think itís what my dad carried as a LEO around then.

It came with a set of rubber Pacmyer grips and I pulled them off when I got home to inspect. No issues. No box. I just wanted a shooter. Now Iím looking at it thinking itís too nice. But I will shoot it and even carry it on occasion. If it was original in the box with the grips that might be different

I put a set of VZ checkered grip in black cherry because it looks more like a wood pattern. I love them. I will look for a set of wood grips eventually to have too. But over all Iím really happy with it.

In the event I want to carry it I got a Bianchi holster and a Galco Phoenix witch is a lot nicer. I really love this 19. Yes I have my plastic guns and modern tactical stuff but I love these older Smith and Wessonís. I wish I had appreciated them earlier.

Very nice. I would have made that trade too.

Putting it in a holster will wear the finish.

Looks great. I like those grips on it.

I picked up a very similar gun over the winter. It belonged to the father of a friend of mine. It has the target grips on it but I am thinking of putting something else on for carry.

Model 19-4s are not so uncommon that there is any crime in shooting and or carrying that one.

Mine goes deer hunting, and I bought a pancake holster so it can double as my carry gun during the hunting trip. I like multi-taskers.

Thats a nice model 19-4. Congrats! Are you saying that he traded you this revolver for an M&P 2.0 Compact straight up? That's how I read your post.
If that is so you really did get a great deal. Congratulations again.

Has it been carried and shot? Yes it has. Will it hurt anything to carry it and shoot it some more? With proper precautions, not much. Use a quality, lined holster and mild ammo (stay away from the hot 357 and overpower 38s) and it will go on for a long time happy and undamaged. Nice trade by the way... I think most everyone on this forum would agree!

Definitely shoot it. Youíll miss out on owning it if you donít. I use the same VZ grips on my 66. Best grips made for shooting in my opinion.

Maybe not so much in the current market. Guns are flying off the shelves and novice buyers may be more inclined toward forking over big bucks for auto-feeders. That's what they see in cop shows / movies.

Not saying that's how it should be but pretty sure that's how it is.

Sierra117, that's a great looking M-19 and I think you got the best end of the trade.

Thanks for sharing the pics and enjoy your new revolver.

Default Gotta love a M-19

I, too, am a huge fan of M-19's. I have a few, including my service revolver, 19-3, from when I was a rent-a-cop in the early 70's. Shoot it, enjoy it. Nice grips too. Congratulations !!

Yes it was a straight up trade yes.

The holsters I have are lined but this gun isnít spending time in them yet. I really appreciate the input and feedback from everyone! Thanks so much for taking the time to respond!
