Default S&W 19 Classic

Is the 19 Classic ( model # 12040 ) also called the 19-9 ??
I just purchased a 19 Classic (#12040) online and during the phone call the lady referred to the 19 Classic as the 19-9.
Iím not seeing this designation anywhere else.
Thanks

Yes, that is the correct dash for the Model 19 Classic.

I have handled a 19-9. The stocks feel different than older 19's and the trigger seemed heavier than my well used 19-3, but I like the crane lock and the full diameter barrel forcing cone of the 19-9. The forcing cone should hold up better than the ones on previous versions of the 19/66.

Found 200 rounds 158 grain SP for a relative bargain. This should last a while. I’ve been pacing myself well during the shortage and all the 38 special I’m finding seems a bit underpowered to drop a dime on.
Thanks again

Ammo prices are currently at insanely high levels right now. At some point, the hoarders will decide they have enough or run out of hoarding space and demand will drop. As for 38 Special in a Model 19, they make for very pleasant shooting, but there is a wide gap between even 38 Special +P and full power 357 Magnum ammo energy. I think the 357 Magnum Short Barrel ammo strikes a good compromise between 38 Special and 357 Magnum, but that has always seemed to be in short supply and is now impossible to find.

You mentioned you are shooting 38 special ammo ? BE sure and clean the cylinder wells thoroughly as you will get a crud ring build up and have difficulty chambering 357 magnum ammo . Use a good quality bore brush and some type of solvent / bore cleaner . Regards Paul

Default Cleaning the cylinder bores!

As a Deputy I had an opportunity to work in the armory from time to time. In order to get the crud out of cylinder bores (There were a lot of revolvers in inventory!) I ordered a reamer made for that purpose. It was exactly like a regular .357 cylinder reamer but just slightly undersized to literally cut the ring of crud out. A little oil and just the weight of the reamer and handle and a few turns until it felt "smooth". The reamer removed 99% of the ring then a few strokes with a bronze brush and patches and "squeaky" clean!

For severely leaded barrels copper "chore boy" or other bronze wool wrapped around a bore brush gets the job done!

Smiles,

Be very careful if you use a reamer to clean the chambers. Yes, it will cut the carbon very nicely, but for the average shooter, I would not recommend a reamer. It is much safer to use a Lewis Lead Remover or pure copper Chore Boy (not the copper plated steel cheap stuff) pot scrubber material wrapped around a bore brush.

Some time ago I made a scrapper with a 357 mag case. I flared the mouth and used a small triangle file to cut "teeth" into the mouth. I mounted a small handle to the head

I used this on the range after every 30-40 rounds. I was shooting IDPA and having issues with my lead ammo loads leaving enough fouling to cause 1-2 rounds to not go fully into the chamber. I stopped using it after I switched to coated bullets for my loads. Much cleaner.

Default Shooting stuff at medical supply stores!

When shooting PPC I used a very stiff test tube brush purchased at a medical supply store that just fit the cylinder bore. A few swipes after every 50 rounds kept the cylinder bores ring free!

They also sold a spray that kept hands dry from sweating! It is used under bandage wraps for that purpose!

Smiles,

Now that's a good idea! A brass case modified like that will certainly remove lead and carbon fouling, but is not hard enough to damage steel.
