Default Model 19-4

I found a model 19 and jumped on it. Just donít see many around here and when you do theyíre gone fast. It has a set of stocks with the speed loader cut out. I didnít think they started putting those type stocks on until the 80ís. Am I wrong about that or did the stocks get swapped at some point?

My 6" nickle 19-4 has the same grips. By the SN its a 1979 vintage, but the grips are dated 1984 on the inside. I bought it from the original owner and I thought the grips were original to the gun, but now I'm not sure.

19-4s were crossover time from football to speedloader cuts; you find factory examples with both and since targets aren't usually numbered to the gun it's almost impossible to know for sure.

K frame targets with the speed loader cut arrived sooner than the same stocks for the N frame. They showed up as early as 1978. I have a 14-4 that I bought new wearing those stocks. It shipped from the factory on July 21, 1980.
