    New 19-3 snub came in

    My first K frame snub and I’m super pleased with it. Didn’t have the original grips so I bought some s&w grips, but they have no screw or escutcheons. It’s important to read the description lol. Still the ones that came with it aren’t too bad and I got a grip adapter and some Pacmyhrs. Hoping to take it out over the weekend. I renaissance waxed it, anybody with more experience know how to get it out of the finer print? Another lesson learned avoid waxing the print.

    You would be hard pressed to find a better handgun anywhere. The Model 19/66 is my favorite revolver of all time. You done good.

    An old toothbrush (or your mother in laws current one..) works wonders to get wax out of tight spots. The 19 is my favorite 357 revolver although I prefer the 6" for shooting. I'd have to put the 19-3 right in the sweet spot of S&W production.You need some period correct grips for it now..

    I’ll probably buy another set of old grips. The screw and and hardware cost about as much by themselves

    You are going to enjoy it. There is something about it,, I suspect it's the round butt, that makes it comfortable to shoot 158 grain jacketed bullets out of it. Yours looks to be in great condition, congratulations on a nice find.

    It’s in fantastic shape except the missing grips. It dates to 1970. Hardly a mark on it. I’m really impressed. If any of you guys are out Loveland Colorado way check out Rekkrs gun store. He also has an Armslist store. He’s got a sweet looking 65 3 inch for sale I was eyeing but if anyone here wants to jump on it it won’t hurt my feelings.
