S&W M-19 parts order

I just ordered 4 parts for a M-19-3 from Gun Parts off the internet and their schematic with their parts numbers.

What I received was standard K frame parts like for a M-10 or a 15. Three of the 4 parts were wrong. I am trying to get in contact with them to find out, if in fact they have the right 19 parts or if I return the parts and re-order will I just get the same wrong generic K frame parts again. This is just a heads up about G-P and their generic bin parts deal, careful is the word.

Right now I am down to finding one part, the correct center pin for a 19, which has the collar set back from the rounded end, about .200 further than a 38spl K frame center pin, to make up for length difference of the 357 cylinder.

I'm really not suprised. Just so many s&w parts. Then again some just don't care.

If no luck there, order the parts from Brownells. We use them befor all others if they have the part needed.

I had to order some new screwdriver bits today so ordered a center pin from Brownell's It says in the data that the 66/19 takes this pin as does the 10 and 15 so we shall see. I suspect it will be as the G-P center pin, too short as they are not the same pins. But at half price to G-P I thought I would give it a try.

PS: This morning, the 21st, I got an email from G-P saying they shipped my pin. We will see which one, if any is the right one.

Yesterday the 24th I received both center pins one in the morning and one in the afternoon, one from G-P and one from Brownells, now these are the 4th pins I have received. The pin from Brownells was a K frame pin and not a pin for a M-19. The G-P pin was marked as being for a K-38 Outdoorsman and M & P with a different number but it was the correct center pin for the M-19.

To be fair, I returned the G-P part to start with and wrote a detailed description of what I wanted so obviously the folks at G-P went and found it.

Now this old pinned barrel, recessed chamber M-19, 4 inch with about 95-97% bright blue finish functions as new and has gone to join its brothers in the safe.

As I was working on this gun I discovered that the blued M-19 and the stainless 66 have taken another $100 jump in value.
