PM me and I'll give you the shipping address.

P.S.: Those 586s are just too dangerous to shoot also!
I would ship all four of mine, but my local UPS hub is not that firearm friendly. I guess I'm just stuck with them. <grin>

I was told by a S&W co. gunsmith that the Mod. 19 is designed for 158 grain bullets. higher speed 125 grain bullets are the primary reason for forcing cone cracks. That is enough for me to limit my 19-5 to 158's only.

Not exactly correct. The revisions (dash #'s) mostly dealt with simplified manufacturing. Dropping the pinned barrel, recessed cylinder, etc.

Yeah, that's why I said maybe. I just wasn't sure. I do know I've never seen a cracked cone on one, but I have had some very reputable people say they have seen it.

Didn't they use one revision to change something about the internal part of the trigger size and location? If I remember correctly isn't there a break point where triggers from some of the older guns wouldn't fit the newer ones?

The Ruger GP100 or smith and Wesson 686 are great pieces. I had the triggers enhanced to 8 pounds on the double action and 3 pounds on the single action. This made a world of difference in the ease to shooting and hitting anything. I highly recommend a good trigger job on any quality revolver.
