    Your Model 19-3 Combat Magnum was manufactured in 1972. Value is from $550 to $650 depending upon condition and location. Numbers made? Unknown, the model 19 shared it's serial range wth several other models that ran into the millions of guns.

    ms_joyce,

    You've got a very fine pistol there and it will serve you well for years to come. As Rad stated up to $650.00 but $600.00 is more probable.

    By the way Welcome....:)

    So if a M19-3 is valued in the $550 - $650 range, then my M66-5 must be worth $650-$750 and the 66-2 maybe a bit more?

    Condition is a critical factor in the value of any gun--moreso in a 30-40 year old gun.

    In today's market, a 95% 4" 19 in nickel is probably $400/$425. Remember that means 5% of the finish is missing. Are you evaluating it correctly (pictures help in these situations). Also this assumes original grips in matching condition; need to adjust if different.

    Gamestalker, a 66-5, apples to apples, would be worth less than a nickel 19 (scarcity, finsih, etc.). A 66-2 worth more than a 66-5 (quality of construction, age, features). Condition, grips, etc., matter and can make a big difference.
