Default S&w 357 19-5

I'm looking at a 357 model 19 with the 5 inch barrel.

Nickel plated. A real beauty. Walnut grips.

Barrel is in good Shape.

It is probably 20 years old,

The cylinder is solid as granite! Closes like a bank vault!

What do you all think of a purchase of a unit like that - not for any reason other than just because.

I am not interested in carrying, just a range gun.

What should I expect to pay for a unit like I describe?

Thanks

The 5" versions are some of the most sought after Smiths out there. I am not very familiar with K-frame 5" guns but the N-frame 5" versions bring a premium.

I would think it would go in the $350-$450 range for that condition.

I paid $299 for a four inch blued model last year.

$299 for a 4" is about right IMHO. The 4" is the most common barrel length. The 5" is probably the least common so it will bring a premium.

Thanks gents.

What do you all think about the nickel plating? Isn't that worth a premium as well?

I can get it for $350. I'm gonna go for it.

Default Nickel Plating

Yes...a nickel plated S&W M19 with a 5" barrel would command a premium price as 4 and 6 inch barrels are the norm and M19's leave the factory blued.

I own a rarity myself...a nickel plated M13-3......with 3" bull barrel. Bought it used from a former Philadelphia Police detective who carried it as a backup to his duty revolver...before they went with the Glocks. Picked it up for $180.00 in the early 80's
