    The nickel M-19 I saw was going for $275 but it was far from "like New". It was a little loose and had some wear. One like that would cost around $350-400 in my area.

    Wow, great price.

    I absolutely love those guns. IMHO, the 2 1/2" and 4" K-frames are the best fighting wheelguns ever made.

    Why can't I find deals like that? :banghead:

    "Right decent price."

    What?

    WHAT?

    C.R. Sam says that any price paid for an S&W is a decent price?

    I'm SHOCKED, Sam!

    Here I thought that in order for it to be a good price (as in, he didn't get ripped off) the owner would have to give him the gun PLUS 2 oxen, a half-dozen sheep, 30 laying hens, and clear title to 100 acres of bottom land!

    Personally I don't care for nickel but at $200, I would have bought it in a heartbeat. You did well. :)

    BTW, a few years back I was offered a S&W M38 (aluminium frame shrouded hammer 5 shot j frame) that was nickel for $200. I snapped it up and love it.

    Actually, in Southern Ohio, we like sheep.
    They look great in a nice dress and heels!

    Generally, though, the "R" and the "L" on those heels can be confusing to
    them!

    'Yes, Officer, I was really trying to help that poor sheep across the fence!'

    That model 19 looks to be in excellent shape and I think it was a steal! Range report please.
