S&W Reintroduces Model 19 Revolver to Classics & Performance Center Lines

Smith & Wesson Corp. announced the reintroduction of its two configurations of the Model 19 revolver, chambered in .38 S&W Special +P and .357 Magnum. For the first time in 20 years, the Model 19 will be available as a catalog item, in both a Classics and Performance Center version.

"The Model 19 revolver was a popular choice for both law enforcement and civilian customers for nearly 40 years, and after many requests, we've decided to reintroduce it to the product line in both Classic and Performance Center models. The Model 19 Classic is designed to replicate the original, while the new Performance Center Model 19 Carry Comp features modern revolver innovation and design for today's shooters." - Tony Miele, General Manager of the Performance Center

The Smith & Wesson Classics series of revolvers have been enhanced with modern internal components, but mimic the look and feel of classic models. The Model 19 Classic revolver features a set of walnut grips, a 4.25" barrel, a black adjustable rear sight, and red ramp front sight. The revolver dons a highly polished blued finish, and traditional thumbpiece for a classic look.

The Performance Center Model 19 Carry Comp is designed for concealed carry and includes a tritium front night sight, custom wood and synthetic boot grips, and a 3" PowerPort vented barrel for recoil management. The revolver features a trigger overtravel stop, and Performance Center tuned action for a smooth double-action and light single action trigger pull.


Both the Model 19 Classic and the Performance Center Model 19 Carry Comp are chambered in .38 S&W Special +P and .357 Magnum, with a 6 round cylinder. The Model 19 Classic is available with an MSRP of $826, and the Performance Center Model 19 Carry Comp has an MSRP of $1,092. Both come with the Smith & Wesson limited warranty and lifetime service policy.
