Bill Jordan was responsible for S&W introducing the model 19, as a Lawman's sidearm. As previously mentioned, it was designed primarily to be shot with .38's, and used sparingly and carried with .357 Magnums. I have owned quite a few 19 and 66's over the years and belted tons of 125 Magnums through them too (before knowing any better... LOL!), without any issue, aside from ringing ears. Now my vintage 19-3 Combat Magnum snubby and 80's Taurus 66, 6"(copy of 19), are regulated to only .38's and occassionally 158 Magnums.
My Ruger GP-100 3" can shoot up all my remains stock of 110 and 125 .357 Magnums.
