    Haven’t made the rounds in a while so I went by the pawn shop and LGS today.

    Well no joy at the pawn shop. However at the LGS I scored.

    They didn’t even have it in the case yet. Looks to be not fired no more than a few cylinders. Everything checked out great on it. I asked how much to make it mine. It will cost you $599. I hesitated for a moment, then said I’ll take it.

    It will hopefully get to go out and shoot in a couple of days.

    No box/papers/tools
    But came with nice soft case

    I'm nickel with envy, that is a beauty for sure. My wallet would've jumped over the counter for that one.

    Congrats!

    That is one pretty gun! Nice to see a plated gun without the nicks and discoloration so common on abused or neglected ones...the prior owner looks to have taken good care of it. Congrats on a nice find!

    I have always been fond of the look of a "19" and the 4" barrel is just right! I bet it will shoot great. Nice find on the magnum!

    Sweet! Super nice find!

    I just don't get the part where you say you hesitated for a moment.

    I agree.One of the best looking revolvers ever made. Have been looking for a nickle model for some time. Nice score at a fair price.

    I have two 19's, a 19-6 (6") and a 19-3 (2.5"). I bought the 19-6 new. 4" is probably the best if you are only going to have one. They all shoot exceptionally well, even the 2.5". The K frames IMO have the perfect weight and balance for a revolver. You're going to like those target grips.:D
