The Model 19 and the stainless version the Model 66 are some of the more popular revolvers S&W made. A lot of folks think they are the perfect size sort of between the M-686 like you have and the smaller J-Frame.

As mentioned they did have an issue with cracks developing in the flat side of the forcing cone which most people attribute to the use of higher-powered loads and maybe lack of cleaning. The general consensus seems to be that with the use of normal ammo the guns should run fine, but not sure there’s any real data. I personally own a M-66 that has had plenty of standard ammo through it with no issues.

Anyway, the guns remain very popular, so there is a market if you decide to sell it.
A major source of objection to a free economy is precisely that it ... gives people what they want instead of what a particular group thinks they ought to want. Underlying most arguments against the free market is a lack of belief in freedom itself.
