Default Well it took ten years, but I now have a Model-19 snubbie

Well I finally found a S&W Model 19-4 snub-nose. I should say I finally found one that I was willing to pay for. It cost me $675.00. I had to sell a couple of my guns to Cabelas in order to have enough cash (none of my S&W guns), but I'm tired of either finding one and not being able to afford it or not finding one when I have the money. I know that I would have made more money if I sold the guns directly to another private person, but that might take awhile and by then the Model 19 would have sold. So I took the loss. That's capitalism for you. I bit the bullet. I'm sure almost everyone here can understand sometimes dropping more money than you might like for that model that you've wanted for years. Whether it's a Model 27 3.5" barrel, pre-war S&W Outdoorsman, nickel plated Colt Government Model in Super 38, Colt Python or whatever you like.

Looks like it was a cop's Model 19. Mechanically it's very sound. Bore is clean. Passed the function check. Timing and endshake are good and I think mostly 38 Special was fired in it. Most of the wear to the finish is on the cylinder and the muzzle. Classic holster wear pattern. Date of birth is 1980. Lot of money (for me), but now I got my Model 19 snub-nose. I'll probably post photos tomorrow

I had to make the same decision when I got my Model 60. Took a loss in trade on my 870 and my 1911. I had no affinity for the jamomatic shotgun or the American icon that was made in Brazil, but I really wanted that no dash stainless snub before someone else got to it. One of the best gun decisions I've ever made; the snub is my go-to EDC here in hot, humid Florida.

I hope to get a Model 65 or 66 with a short barrel at some point. I have a lot of more practical items on my short list at the moment, though. Kudos to your new S&W snub, sir. Post pics when/if you can.

Congrats! I know what it's like to find your holy grail, I feel the same about my new Irish SMLE. Look forward to seeing pictures!

Okay here it is. Like I said there is wear to the finish mostly on the cylinder.

Nice! I always wanted one of those.

And I would consider getting a pair of Pachmayr grips for them.

I've got Houges on them right now, but in January I'll get my uniform and equipment allowance and I'll purchase a pair of Pachmayr grips then.

I can't even see the wear on the gun, it looks great. Did the gun come with a pair of gold frame Aviators and a mustache?

And a really awesome crushed blue velvet leisure suit.

Dude, all you need after your leisure suit, shoulder holster, aviators, and mustache, is a badge on a neck chain.

Oh, and a partner that carries a Colt Commander (that can be me).

I love it. Nice piece. Can't wait to hear a range report.
