    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.

    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.
