I am trying to find out if there is a counterpart to the model 19. What I mean is a K-frame in .357, blued and with fixed sights? I am asking for a friend who is likes my 19 2/12 barrel, but isn't a fan af adjustable sights. Also a full under lug like the 19 would be good too.

In 357, a blued fixed sight revolver would be the model 13. I know that it has come in 3" and 4" versions. The 3" has a round butt like your snub 19. These are pretty hard to find. The stainless version is the model 65 and is much more common. As far as I know, the only model 65 with the underlug is the lady smith.

hope this helps.

Also there were a very few model 19s built with a full underlugs and fixed sights, but they are collectors items and way beyond pricing for shooting. Look for a S&W 13 3" it is one of the nicest full sized carry guns around they can be found around $300 to $450.

Looks like my friend found this post. Good, he'll know more what he wants than I.

I've yet to use one of these, but what C&S products I do have experience with have been top notch.

If you can't find a 13 or 65 you can at least turn a 19 or 66 into a close second.

The Model 13 was the fixed sight counterpart to the Model 19, as others have stated.
I would love to find a 3" Model 13, the "classic" FBI gun. :)

The sight conversion looks like it would work, I may try that.
Lawnman, I have been watching you gun, I may try to bid on it in a couple of days.
