Picked up a 6” 19-5 a few weeks ago. Wanted to get rid of my Ruger GP100 and find something different for the FOP Pistol League I shoot in. This came available and another cop wanted my Ruger so it worked out. Pistol left the factory on 2/24/86. Old man who owned the Smith took good care of it but I wasn’t a fan of the factory target grips. Replaced them with a set of Hogues I found locally. Pretty pleased with how it turned out.

Nice pick-up! I hope you enjoy it!

Very nice. I like my GP100, but I'd love a model 19. I'd say you did good.

Very nice addition, those old Model 19s are classics.

Nice. I like the grips! Shoot only 158 grain .357s in it.

Took it to the range twice now. Once to put some rounds through it for a functions check and once for competition. Trigger is excellent, makes the Ruger feel like a Saturday night special. Everything else worked perfectly on it. Accuracy is fantastic. It’s better than I am. I can’t complain about anything now that I’ve got the new grips on it.

No doubt about it. Model 19s are the cat's meeow.

That 19 looks like it was set up for bullseye shooting. Patridge front sight and both a target hammer and trigger. Sweet find!
