I had a 2.5" Nickel M19 once upon a time. Don't recall the dash but it was P&R. Never should have sold it.

You might like Bill Jordan signature grips. They're ugly as sin but they feel great on my 4" Model-19-2.

You sir have fine taste, My nickle 19 wears Badgers and I can't say for sure that HKSs will work Safariland comp 2s do

IMO, Safarand Comp 2s are the way to go.
They will make you throw rocks at HKS

whats the big deal over safariland?

RE: Safariland Speed loaders they spring load the ammo so it doesn't rattle and the big plus is they don't require you to turn the knob to release ammo. the release button is in the center of the ammo and the cylinder star trips it when ammo is ~1/2" into chambers.
The only disadvantage is they're not as forgiving as to what gun they fit and they're not made for 5 shot 44 specials:fire:
