This example, with its 6? barrel and adjustable sights gives the Model 19’s balance of size, precision, and power and also makes it more corrosion resistant and appealing to those who prefer the look of stainless steel. This one comes with a nice pair of Goncalo Alves target stocks with light handling wear. This one has seen light use and has a great bore and mechanics, it ought to make for a fine recreational or defensive wheel gun for one lucky winner. Please see our photos and good luck!
