Nice.
I think the Diamondback is one of the best looking revolvers ever made. I'm hoping to get one in .38 spl someday.

Is that a Model 19?

I have a 19-3 that looks just like that gun that was a police trade-in and is marked "W.P.D" followed by the number "142" (both visible above trigger). It even has the same grips as the one in your pic. I'm thinking about sending it to S&W to get reblued.

Here's a pic of mine:

Hard to decide but at least today, this is my favorite revolver K22.



And yes, I do have the original grips packed away. These are just a lot more comfortable for me. And yes, I do shoot this early '50s Smith, alot.

Has to be .45 Colt of course and blued... and a Single Action to boot ... So the favorite 'right now' is the .45 convertible flattop on the left in following picture.

Nothing fancy, but it gets shot more than anything else I own. Ruger 5.5" Single-Six.

Mine would have to be my model 18-7. It is my first S&W and hopefully not my last. I know it has the evil lock but I am hoping to pass it down to my future children. Now I just need to get an old K-22 to match, and a K-38, and a model 17... and a second job lol.

S&W 581

Its my favorite because its the only one I currently own as well as my first Revovler. Just got it a few days ago. Its a bit rough looking, I want to restore the blue and get a more comfortable set of grips for it.Hopefully i'll get a chance to shoot it today!
