Get off my lawn...
I recently picked up one of the new S&W Performance Center Model 19 Carry Comp revolvers. These three inch model 19 wheel guns are visually pleasing (to me). I’m a sucker for 3”ers! It comes with two sets of grips (wood boot grips and a set of really ugly rubber grips). The wood grips (1st picture) look awesome, but tended to have a sharp edge that didn’t agree with me. After my first 100 rounds down range, I swapped out the pretty wood grips for a set of Kim Ahrend boot grips. I like the feel of Ahrend grips, as they fit well in my hand. For a Performance Center wheel gun, I found the trigger pull to be less than stellar. Most of my older S&W revolvers have smoother trigger pulls than this one. But I’m sure Smith and Wesson has several floors of lawyers that dictate what’s acceptable for all their hand guns. Don’t misunderstand me, I do love the M19 carry Comp. It just lacks the refinements of their older offerings. The barrel is ported to relieve the kick of full house 357 loads. And I must admit it is functional, as I was comfortable shooting four cylinders of the hot ones one handed. All in all a pretty sweet revolver. Hopefully the double action trigger pull will improve over time. Thanks for taking a look.
