Default New 19-9 Carry Comp and 125 grain 357

Wife bought me a new 19-9 Carry Comp. Did Smith correct the forcing cone issue when using 125 grain 357 with this version? Just wondering....thanks!

From what I've read new models have thicker forcing cone. Welcome to the forums you have a nice revolver. I have an older 19-2 the magnums are for my heavier 686.

The current .357-rated Ks are presumed more robust for a variety of reasons, to include no longer having the barrel shank cut to accommodate the yoke.

Hotter ammo will always accelerate revolver wear faster compared to milder loads, but whatever the cause of cracked forcing cones on some older Ks, it thus far doesn't appear to be an issue with the new ones.

The issue has been corrected on the newly designed 19-9. The new ball detent lock provides more space for a full diameter forcing cone. This new locking system is stronger than previous K frame 357 Magnum revolvers and even allow the K frame to shoot 44 Magnum cartridges with the Model 69 Combat Magnum.

I have one and am not worried at all about shooting 125 grain 357 with this version.

Enjoy!

Yes, the 19-9 should hold up much better with 125 grain full power magnum loads, the thin spot at the bottom of the forcing cone has been eliminated. The bigger question now is, will your wrists and hands hold up to those loads?

^^^ Exactly - the odds are pretty good that your hands/wrists/elbows and wallet will run out of tolerance before your revolver will.

I'd still run 38+P 158 grain if it were me.

I like 125 jhp in my 19-3. I load it down a little and accurate at 50 yards.
