    Here is another one of those, my friend has a gun......threads. I don't have much information. I know it's a model 19 357 (blue), 2.5 inch barrel, new in the box. Don't have a date but pretty sure it was made in the 70s or 80s. Any ideas on worth? Thanks,

    BB

    BB, 27th edition 2-3 years old book says that their 8 engineering changes to this model since it first came out. Your blue 2&1/2 barrel most likely with the round butt and disc. in 1991 is worth at 100% must have original box for this, is worth $395 in my blue book. This price can vary with factors. Hope this helps. Break-em all. Jeff

    More info is needed. Open the cylinder and look under the yoke recess where the model is stamped on the frame to see what "dash" number it is. This affects value. Also, being a snubbie adds value.....they seem to be "hot" as of late.

    Pinned: A pin will be present through the frame at the barrel/frame junction.

    Recessed: The cylinder will be counterbored allowing the cartridge rim to sit flush with the rear face of the cylinder.

    Both of these features were discontinued in later Smiths (roughly the early 80's) and will factor into value. IMO Blue Book value means squat in most all cases.....market demand and features will determine price.

    If it's truly NIB with all accessories it's probably a 500+ revolver.

    KEEP SMOKIN' EM.... Dave

    I have seen some pinned and not recessed and vice-versa. My 2 1/2 round butt has both.

    I have a NIB 19 4" in stainless...this is a square butt gun in the box with all the goodies. It is sort of rare because it is one of the first stainless guns before SW changed model #'s of stainless guns to begin with "6"...its a beautiful gun but not sure of its value either..I'm the original owner and it has been shot 6 times to zero site with my combat load

    I sort of thought it might be a little more valuble than most

    Calvin, I just tried to look up your gun in the book to give you an idea, but you must have a very rare gun. My Blue Book does not show any Stainless Steel models in Model 19 at all. Only in Blue and Nickle finish. Break-em all. JEff

    I believe a stainless model 19 is a model 66. HMB

    In Indiana a 2.5" model 19 NIB will bring $550.00 or more.
