Smith & Wesson Corp. has announced that it has reintroduced two configurations of its Model 19 revolver, chambered in .38 S&W Special +P and .357 Mag. 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.  

Tony Miele, general manager of the Performance Center, said, “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. 

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