    Default Show your blued guns

    Stainless guns may be practical, but I've been thinking about a nice blued gun again.

    I have no idea what i want, so show off your blued guns.

    Please keep it to chemically blued (hot or cold) guns and not coated/finished guns.

    Since you're in my wheelhouse I'll be the first to oblige.

    By the way vintage Smith & Wessons, Colts and Rugers are a preference since the bluing on them cannot be matched today.

    Here's a S&W Model 19-3 ca 1970.. It's a P and R gun with 3T's






    And just a few more of some of my others

    Beautiful! I had a 19 probably just like yours a few years back. It was well used. Maybe fair condition. But i paid almost nothing for it. And then stupidly sold it for next to nothing.

    I wish the model 10's had a full underlug. I'm not abusive with my guns, but things do happen. Plus I like shooting 357 Magnum. Maybe a 586 is in my future?

    There's always the Model 10 heavy barrel.

    Early on , when the L-frame .,357 came out , there was a fixed sight version with the same underlug barrel. Intended to be a rugged duty/defense gun at lower cost , they didn't sell too well. The 9mm auto was taking off with police. Now they bring more than the adjustable sight 586/686.

    Thx Sarge, In today's semi-auto world they're a bit dated but when you handle these guns and notice the craftsmanship that was put into them... well they grow on you.

    This particular model 19 has high polish blue you don't see anymore, the case hardened/colored wide target trigger and hammer have more colors in them than crayola, there are recessed chambers in the cylinder so that the rimmed cases sit flush are perfection, the double action is as smooth as silk and the single action is something you have to feel to believe.

    They'e just a fine example of hand built American pride from a by gone error.
