    I have a S&W Model 19-4 .357 Mag w/ 6"barrel. It has a small grip unlike I have seen on others. Even with a 6" barrel it makes a pretty good carry gun but I would not use it for self defense unless you are deaf or regularly wear earmuffs. If you miss, you could set your self up for a liability suit if the perp sues you for loss of hearing . I assume it is 1978 vintage. I would part with it if someone wanted it bad enough.

    This past week, I bought this Taurus 357 magnum with the red dot scope from an individual for $550. It is an 8 shot revolver with a ventilated rib and it is ported to keep the recoil down. It is a fairly heavy gun at 4 1/2lbs, but it is supposed to be very accurate. He had taken one deer with it before selling it to me. I thought I would mention this brand in case you are still looking and wanted to consider buying one. The barrel on this one is 8.375". Bill

    The only Colt Python (nickel finish) I ever owned from the 70s I traded as a down payment on a yellow Donzi GT 21 in about 1987 to a guy on our local boat ramp who was selling the boat -
    The only Colt I have now is an 8" ss Anaconda 44 magnum, but it is not really much fun to shoot without the porting - too much recoil. Got to love the Colts though - Bill

    I have that same gun...and couldn't agree more on the noise factor. I usually keep it loaded with 38 specials which aren't quite as loud.

    Colts are by far the smoothest action of any DA revolver I have ever shot. I grew up shooting the Python 357 and Diamondback 22 & 38s. Shot side by side with S&W revolvers, there's just no comparison. But the quality and rarity makes them ridiculously un-affordable these days.

    I take it you got it back and had him arrested since you know who stole it.
