Really nice 19 I have a blue 4 in 19-3 that is a beater but still a great shooter. Oh nice pics and like the 66 as well

Very nice revolvers. I just love the old Smiths. Here is another 19-3 and a 66-1.

Of course, now you need a pair of 2 1/2" and a pair of 6 inchers and the ever mysterious 3" K frame 357 mags...

After that the Model 13s and 65s start to show up!

It never stops...

cvc944:

Both of your Smith revolvers look mint! I like the classic K-frame revovers too! The only other blue Combat Magnum that I own is the following pre-model 19 that was shipped from Smith and Wesson in the first batch of these revolvers that were ordered!:



I also have this stainless Combat Magnum(M66 no dash#)which was shipped with the magna stocks instead of the target stocks:

Yes, I agree with you..........regarding the need to acquire those other Smith revolvers you've indicated! But I can't afford them all-since I like Colts too......and the beat goes on.....and on....and, just never ends!

You have great taste! I think the K-frames and a few L's are as nearly perfect in their balance of size, power and shootability as you can find anywhere.
