I like the looks of the 4" M19 but I've never owned one. I've had three 19s over the past 20 years or so, all 2.5" versions.

Very nice "Combat Magnums". The Model 19-1 is more rare than the 29-1, but collectors just don't warm up as much to K-frames. I really like Combat Magnums and have a few.

Sir.
Any chance it is as rare as the elusive 28-1? :cool:

No collector has reported a 28-1 so this model variation is yet to be discovered. However, that being said, it was only about four plus years ago that the first true 29-1 was reported (4-screw frame, extractor rod with a left-hand thread, and stamped MOD. 29-1 in the yoke cut). Since then, one other has been found. If there is a 28-1 out there, it will eventually surface :cool: . The 29-1 that was reported had been residing in Arizona for many years and was not considered anything special by the owner. When I first heard about it, I thought the owner was describing it incorrectly, but I was wrong as it turned out to be a "real" 29-1.
