From 1905 to 1955 most Smith & Wesson revolvers had five screws, four held on the side plate and one in front of the trigger guard. After 1955 the top side plate screw was eliminated, and from that time until 1961 the revolvers were known as 4-screw guns.
Since the Model 19 (before they given model numbers by S&W in 1957) was introduced in 1955, it would have to be the first year of production.
