Default 19-5 factory grips, and ammo questions.

I recently bought a nice 19-5 that has Pachmyer grips. I am thinking of putting a set of factory correct wood grips on it. Where are they usually found, and what do they cost?

On the ammo, I know its not recommended to shoot 357's all the time in a 19, so I plan on shooting 38 spl in it. The most common ammo I find locally is 100 rd boxes of Remington 38 spl+p 125 grains at Walmart. Is it OK to use alot of 38 spl+p?

For grips try E-bay, gun broker or even better yet check our for sale pages. If I remember correctly Handejector had several pair for sale.

Shoot all the 38 Special +p and +p+ ammo you want though your M-19. Just remember to REALLY clean out the charging holes, to avoid a carbon build up in them.

A 19-5 should have horseshoe relieved target grips like the ones pictured below.


As for price ...maybe between $40 and $75 depending on condition etc.

And the inside of the grips will be stamped with a year and date. The s/n will not be on the grips in this case.

Several good looking grips out there, in the price range mentioned. You get to find what you think looks right on your 19.
