S&W .357 Mod 19-3 Blue 4 in TS 1971 VG  Guns > Pistols > Smith & Wesson Revolvers > Full Frame Revolver
Description: From nearby Henderson County, Tennessee, comes this veteran of the Henderson County Sheriff's Department, a Smith & Wesson .357 Combat Magnum, numbered model 19-3. This revolver's serial number, 2K376xx dates it to the Year 1971. It has typical, but only moderate, service carry wear and it is in its original configuration with color casehardened serrated service trigger, service hammer, and Target Stocks with no speed loader cut. Surface wear includes normal holster buffing, whitening on the muzzle, cylinder face and flute edges, and sides of the grame. The only surface pitting that we detect is on the serrated back strap of the frame, and that is extensive in that area but minimal as far as depth. Right grip panel has undergone considerably more contact than its left mate, and that is normal as well for a service revolver. Note that the right rear side of the rear sight blade is canted forward about 2-3 degrees. We rate this 19-3 as Very Good finishwise, since 75 to 80 percent of its original finish is intact by our estimate. Photos, however, should suffice for interested parties to judge finish grade for themselves. This Combat Magnum is Excellent mechanically. Blast effect to the underside of the frame top strap directly above the barrel's forcing cone is minimal, a faint thin crease that traverses most of the width of the top strap. The perfect .006 cylinder face to forcing cone gap helps explain the absence of blast cutting, but officers who carried .357 Magnums were allowed to conduct their annual training and qualification with .38 Special ammo until about 10 years ago, so this 19-3 dodged getting many Magnum rounds fired in it anyway. Double action trigger pull is still stiff but consistent, and the hammer travels 5 to 10 degrees after the cylinder times, in all six positions. On single action, the hammer travels a full 25 to 30 degrees after the cylinder times, and the single action trigger pull is an exceptionally crisp 3 pounds. Lateral play to the cylinder is moderate with the trigger relaxed, about 2mm total movement; but with the trigger pulled all the way the cylinder does not move at all. Bore, cylinder chambers, and mechanism are all bright, clean, and excellent. This is a still-attractive, eminently serviceable 19-3 that has seen much carrying but little firing and good maintenance. We're offering it for only $ 389.95

In this respect, and in several others, Guns America outshines all its competitors. This is the best firearms website there is, hands down.
