    New Baby

    I just joined the forum the other day. I picked up a true beauty today A 100 yr 1823 to 1973 in a blue velt wooden presentation box a mod 19-3 with a fixed blade matching serial # on knife and handgun. It is a Texas Ranger commerative. The box or case has the state seal as well as S&W seal carved in the box.Revolver had a couple of tiny like surface rust next to the steal.
    No biggy. The neat thing about this puppy is it has a cut - out in the trigger guard. The book says only 8000 produced. I am one happy man.

    You lucky devil That is fantastic.I have wanted one of them for years and have only seen one up close. IMHO the 19's were some of S&W finest. I have an old 19-4 and I shoot it often as it makes me look real good at the range. The best of luck with it Dave.

    You gotta be one tough cookie to do that. It would drive me mad to own a gun I had never shot. I would waste away. Why I wouldn't be able to eat, drink, or sleep till I fired that gun. That's why I could never be a collector even if I had the money. Some day your grand kids will thank you when they trade it for a set tires for their old car. Shoot it man and enjoy it while you can. Good luck.
