Came across a model 19-1 combat magnum like new in box. Any idea what she is worth?
To you it is worthless, To me as cheap as I can get it.
If you have details on the gun such as the s.n or a good ideal of its condition you can look it up in the blue book of gun values or post on smith-wessonforum.com and they can help you out.
Be sure to tell them where you are as regional prices vary. but i would pay 500-600 for a good one.
I would say 100% unfired 357 combat Magum in box with orginal paper and cleaning lit in plastic
What finish does it have?
The 19's were typically blued.
Either way, it's between $600 to $900.
Very cool piece! I have a couple myself.
The 19-1 was only made for a couple of years. The dash 1 would have enhanced value as a collectable. Unfired, with box, papers, and tools, in the condition you describe, I would say in the neighborhood of $1900.00 to $2200.00 depending on the collector.
Hope this helps.
I will post pictures soom
Sorry to bust-in on this thread, but I need wood grips for my S&W 19.

sound like S&W 357 Model 19-1 is very rare piece.
"Model 19-1s were shipped mainly in 1959 and were replaced late in that year or early in 1961 by the 19-2"
so it could be worth more than 19-2, 19-3, 19-4, 19-5, 19-6.
I personally believe the model 19 to be the best S&W revolver ever made, but I could be biased!
Blue Book values in 98 to 100% condition: $1600-$1850.
Must be stamped "Mod 19-1" in yoke cut.
I think I am in love. Wow!! I want it. Only problem is, it is Too nice to shoot.
Yeah, that's the problem with scarcer, pricier guns like this-they become safe queens. Be nice to own one, though.
I traded a H&K USP compact for my model 19, I had the USP for 5 years and hardly ever shot it,
I have put as many rounds through the 19 in 4-1/2 months, love that 19, and she ain't no "Safe Queen"
I've always said that a medium frame 4" double action .357 with adjustable sights was
one of the "everybody needs at least one" guns. I'm a sucker for K frame Smiths, and
the older pinned/recessed 19's are at the top of my list. Pretty sure I would NOT buy
a NIB 19-1 though-----I wouldn't be able to resist taking it out and shooting it.:bluelaugh:
