Giving the reintroduced S&W Model 19 K-frame a work out (VIDEO)

Pro-shooter Jerry Miculek, who knows a thing or three about skinning a smoke wagon, checks out the newly revamped Smith & Wesson Model 19 .357 Magnum.

The classic wheel gun that modern gunfighter Bill Jordan envisioned in the 1950s as the .357 Combat Magnum was the gold standard for generations of lawmen and was issued to the U.S. Border Patrol and the FBI before those agencies moved to semi-autos. While the gun was updated over the years, the final non-stainless variant, the 19-8, dropped from Smith’s line in 1999 after an almost half-century run. Today’s new Model 19, true to form, is chambered in .38 Special +P and .357 Magnum.

The Classic model comes complete with a polished blued finish that Jordan would recognize, walnut combat grips with S&W accents, and a 4.25-inch barrel. Sights include a red front ramp and black adjustable rear.

And Mr. Miculek provides the low-down on both the Carry Comp model and the standard 4-inch.
