    How'd I do?

    Smith & Wesson model 19-5 .38Spl/.357 Mag K-frame with 2-1/2" barrel (I really like the barrel length)

    Yeah I don't think the seller realized the value of this gun. He sold this gun (to me) within minutes of posting it. He had other people in line.

    It was THE primary issued sidearm for several federal law enforcement agencies for many years - back in the day before Semi-Autos . . .

    Unless your hands are very large, try out the
    wood stocks. I shoot mainly "warmer" 38s in my
    19-3 snub, and I find it quite agreeable with
    those little stocks.

    Yes, that is a very fair price, and if that was
    a package deal, it was an extremely good bargain.

    Regards,
    Old 112

    Now that's a good deal. You are going to make that revolver your carry piece, aren't you? (with the wooden grips of course)

    I had the same revolver in its stainless version, the model 66, and it was a fun gun to own. It is a good self-defense gun for belt carry.

    Very nice, had one like it years ago when a S&W was THE gun to carry. Absolutely the finest finished, smoothest, most accurate revolver I ever owned. Even with the 2 1/2" barrel I could hit a mop bucket at 50yds every time. That's the one gun I never should have traded away..... (sigh).....

    Very nice. I just love that you can pick up revolvers dirt cheap these days in the semi-auto craze.
    Last spring, I found an unfired 586-4 4" for $400.

    Also grabbed a well used but very nice 686 6" for $325. 3 years ago, I got my P&R 19-4 4" for $199, complete with Goncalo grips.

    Are his hands still up? Did you take his wallet while you were robbing him? Do you want to make a quick $25.00 return on your investment? I'll pay the shipping.
    Great deal-I'm jealous! :what:

    Very nice, I would love a model 19 like that for ccw...

    ...and at that price, I'd say someone likes you!

    I picked up a nickel 4" bbl model 19 last year for $300. I would rather have the blued version. And, I'm guessing that a 2 1/2" bbl brings a little premium. Nice find.

    That it does! You did real well and nothing wrong with those grips either if you plan on shooting many full house .357's through it.

    Very good buy; excellent price.

    I, too have been trading greatly appreciated autoloaders for under-appreciated revolvers lately, in particular vintage Colts. But I have a couple of Smiths around, too. I've been looking for a 19 and likely would have grabbed that one at that price even if I had to pay cash for it.

    To quote a savvy poster from another thread: "you would have heard my hand move to my wallet"...

    What's with everyone around here scoring the *killer* deals on desirable wheelies, anyways?

    Congrats on a great deal on a fantastic gun.

    The blue book values always make me laugh. When is the last time anyone has seen any S&W revolver in good condition for $200? They must have always sold the last ones before I got to the store. I've been keeping my eye out for the last 6 years and haven't found one yet.
