I just picked up my 19 3” carry comp. Very nice gun the fit and finished looks great to me. There has been some discussion on whether the barrel was one or two piece. It’s three piece barrel barrel, barrel cover and a cap over the front of the port. The more I play with it the more I love it. I have no complaints. Mother ship still makes a beautiful revolver.

Interesting that they always their photos so as to not show the hole.

I find that curious myself. Surely they know folks are aware of the lock on it.

The muzzle?

Yeah, doesn't hurt to see the crown.

I would like to see it also to see what barrel system they use on each revolver.

There is no conspiracy to try and hide the internal lock system in images. I doubt that anyone even thinks about it at corporate.

The reason that the right side of the firearm is shown so often is because that is were the cartridge information is located.

From the left side many firearms can be confused with other models. I know that is not necessarily true of the few thousand hard core enthusiasts on this Forum, but it is true of the million or so average folks that purchase Smith and Wessons annually

I have a 66-2 3", which was used as a detective gun and my last revolver duty gun, a 66-2 4". Both are great guns, and are never shot with 125 gr. .357 mag. They are usually loaded down with Buffalo Bore 158 gr. LSWHP FBI loads, .38+P at 1000 fps. Great guns that have served me well over the years.

However, I bought a 2.75" 66-8 a little while back. It is more accurate out of the box than most revolvers I can remember. The trigger pull is smooth and reasonable and it feels good in the hand. Now, it will never have the same aesthetic appeal as the 66-2's in my mind, but it is a shooter and I have no fear of cracking a forcing cone if I decide to use lighter weight magnum rounds. I'm definitely considering a new Classic 19 as a result of my experience with the 66-8. I still prefer the originals, but after plugging the Hillary Hole, I'm quite pleased with the shooting capabilities of this little jewel.

You must be looking at a different set of pictures that what I'm looking at. The website clearly shows everything about the revolver.

I do notice this tactic with sellers, especially on a well known auction site, but that's the seller, not S&W.

Barrel, lock, and bluing so fine it's like black chrome, notice my finger reflection and swords in the background.

I saw the "new" Model 19's for the first time, a few days ago. I liked it enough to put one on layaway, the first brand new Smith and Wesson I've bought in 40 years or so. I already have a Model 69 (purchased used) that has many of the features discussed here and have no problems with it.

I'm looking forward to getting the 19 out of detention in a couple of weeks.
