SW Model 19
The SW Model 19 series of revolvers have been enhanced with modern internal components, but mimic the look and feel of classic models. The Model 19 Classic revolver features a handsome set of walnut grips, a 4.25″ barrel, a black adjustable rear sight, and red ramp front sight. The revolver dons a highly polished, blued finish and traditional thumbpiece for a classic look.
The medium-size rimfire SW Model 19 is a Classic Series 6-round 357 Magnum, 38 S&W Special +P blued steel revolver mated to a splendid wooden grip. The barrel is 4.25” long. This concealable single-action/double-action (SA/DA) gun’s overall length is 9.875”, and it weighs 37.2 ounces, or 2.35 pounds. This is the gun’s only standard configuration.
In front is a red ramp sight while the rear sight is adjustable. The frame and fluted cylinder are both high strength carbon steel. The barrel is stainless-steel. All three feature a nice, high polish blued finish. The walnut grip is elegantly curved in front with an even greater curved palmswell in back. The trigger guard is ovoid and is followed by a very deep undercut. The diamond checkered wooden grip contrasts nicely against the blued steel frame.
A few other nifty points: the gun has a classic style thumbpiece, a color case hardened hammer and a color case hardened trigger! The case hardening process imparts a gorgeous multi-color patina. The hammer spur is horizontally grooved with light serrations. The gun also has a hammer block safety.
The SW Model 19 is one of Smith & Wesson’s Medium K-frames. These frames have existed in some fashion over 100 years. The Model 19 has been produced since the late-1950s. That’s a lot of heritage! So, the gun comes by the classic lines and harmonious proportions rather naturally. Even with all Smith & Wesson’s experience, fit and finish are to be appreciated.
