    Nice! You and @Riomouse911 got the same bug.

    I hear tell some Californians, Oregonians and Washingtonians want to join y'all Idahoans and secede from their commie-infested states? Think they'll bring their gun money with them? ;)

    Another beautiful S&W Magnum for Snake. That is certainly a revolver that I wouldn’t have passed up either. :)

    Again, very well done sir, very well indeed! :thumbup:

    Stay safe.

    Nice acquisition sir! I'm jealous. I've been looking for a nice Model 19 for a few years now!

    A few years ago I decided I had too many revolvers, mostly K Frames. I sold a couple of PPC Open Revolvers both on K Frames a Python and 1 K22! What showed up was an M18, 629, 625 and a M60! (Does an M18 qualify as a K- Frame...) :)'s

    Math is hard!

    Nice Model 19.

    K-frames are the best. A Model 19 was my first K-frame and first 357 Magnum from back in the day.

    I just wish S&W made more chambered in 32S&WL. I’d like to round out my K-frame collection but it takes a small fortune to buy a Model 16/K-32 revolver.

    I guess I need to get one of the redesigned Model 19 or Model 66 K-frames in part to see if S&W really did fix the split forcing cone issue.

    Mine doesn't have a 4" but we got lots of history. In 4" I prefer the old Colt .357 model , you know , Colts 50s Cadillac model before the Python. I got a super one of those also with Fuzzy Farrant Combat grips and the same tooled and floral carved matching holster . Both\ the original Colt Python framed Official Police series can take some k frame speed loaders sooooo :)

    They have to keep the other side of that double case balanced :

    Very nice Model 19, Snake. I only have one K frame in .357...a Model 13, but I sure understand the appeal of them. Congrats! And be nice to that beautiful nickel finish. ;)

    Thank you to all, I replaced the photos with ones that looked better because it's blued not nickel I guess the photos made it look sort of not blued :rofl:

    I've lost count of how many times nicely blued revolvers come across as nickel in photos. Must be the lighting. Regardless, I like the finish...and the target grips, too.

    Think that only happens to highly polished deep blued guns .

    Colts and S&W’s in the same case!

    They must fight like cats and dogs when you’re not around.

    Actually they conspire to bankrupt their owners via ammunition usage. :thumbup:

    In the 90's I had a '66 Mustang and a '67 Corvette in the same garage.

    I'd occasionally find signs of conflict. Or maybe it was just me banging into things.

    This thread inspired me to take my 19-3 to the range today.

    And I shot crappy. No pictures of today's targets. Me, not the gun. I will not embarrass the gun with my performance.

    Perhaps there will be better days.

    But a day shooting lousy groups is better than a day without shooting at all.

    Beautiful gun! About 5 years ago, I wandered into my local shop and saw a pristine, like never fired looking 19-2 4” for $249! Matching diamond target stocks. I didn’t hesitate and it came home with me. I shot it 18 times and put it away. It was just so nice I didn’t want to mess it up. I sold it for triple what I paid. I don’t remember what I did with the money I made but I surely remember that revolver and miss it dearly. That would have been THE gun to pass down.

    My first handgun was a 19-4. I was a senior in high school and under 21 so my dad did the paperwork for me. I still have it and still love it.

    People loved to bash the Bangor Punta guns back then but they sure seem to love them today!
