I recently got this model 19-5 from my dad I am looking for any info you all can give me on it. The main thing I am looking for is some new grips but any info or tips about the 19-5 would be great. I am new to the revolver world. Thank you for any help you can give.

I see some freckles of rust here and there. Get some oil on that gun. I use Ballistol as it's very versatile and skin safe. There are more comfortable grips available too. If you want to enjoy shooting without beating you or the gun up try some .38 Special or .357 cowboy loads. That's a fine gun you have there.

Thank you. I will get some oil on it more regularly. I have not done to much shooting with it yet I do have some 357 FMJ rounds on the way so I can do some shooting. Do you have any places that you like to get grips from?

Model 19 is a very good introduction to the world of revolvers, and you have a nice example. A little Ballistol, or mineral oil, and a little elbow grease, and those freckles should, at least fade. My 19 has Hogue grips as I prefer the solid grip I get with rubber. I have to agree that wood is MUCH more attractive, but.......... I love my model 19-5 and find it to be very accurate and comfortable to shoot. Enjoy, and welcome to the forum from So.Colorado!!!
