I was looking around to see if Smith and Wesson still made the M19, so I went to their website and found this towards the bottom of the page. Without the light and Aimpoint it looks like a pretty sweet revolver, but what type of shooter would configure a wheelgun like this? Perhaps a serious competitive shooter who competes in low light matches?

Probably made in anticipation of the RE-remake of Escape From NY.

maybe a special run for a mil or contrator.
they have a need they throw down a ton of money.
the deal falls thru and the funky revolvers hit the street.

S&W has some good ideas.
that's why i like them over Ruger.

I like it. What is that, an eight shooter?

I don't understand why hanging all kinds of crap off of a semiauto ain't ridiculous, but it is on a revolver.

I personally don't even own a pistol with a light rail, but Smith wheelguns can do no wrong in my mind. They are ALL awesome.

Smith must have missed the memo that the revolver for police use died about 25 years ago.

ETA: How in the hell would you hold that thing and be able to engage the light switch???

This abomination was displayed at the SHOT show. Its a really good example of what happens when people start answering questions that were not asked.

If they could mount the flashlight under the underlug and rig a tape switch to allow ease of activation it might not be a terrible idea.

I'm not sure what the handgun would be used for though. It seems too big for a holster; maybe lasergrips and the light are a better idea.

A couple of speed loaders and some practice and I don't see why not to use a revolver.

They are super accurate on single action when that is needed.

They forgot the Crimson trace grip laser.

Clearing a dud is just a trigger pull away.

And it's a .357 Magnum, don't see why a tactical revolver isn't a contender.

Round these parts, it's 100% about style points.
