Well guy's, i haven't bought a gun in quite some time but, i couldn't pass on this final Smith on my bucket list, the infamous Mod. 19 in my favorite 2 1/2" barrel. This is the model i've wanted forever. It's not NIB condition but, the nicest one i've seen in a while for a fair price: ($650.00). Some dings and dangs but, the mechanics are perfect. Shot VERY little for a circa 1973 revolver. Notice the almost non-existent cylinder ring. P.S. I've already ordered the OEM, K-frame grips. Looks a lot better with the period correct factory grips.
