New vs. Classic S&W Model 19

I was discussing my newfound appreciation of revolvers while shooting with my father-in-law. He worked as a police officer for a few years after returning home from Vietnam, and mentioned how he loved shooting his duty-issued Model 19 (most likely an early 70's model). The way he raved about that pistol made me consider picking one up. Are the current Model 19's significantly different than the one he carried? If picking up an older Model 19 is recommended, are there any versions or production years that should be avoided? Lastly, was the gun really that good, or has his fondness for the pistol been affected by nostalgia?
