Hello model guns friends ,



INTRO


I am here for another review of the M19 Metal 4 inch. Like you can read in the title, it is a gold finish metal model like all the last generation of Kokusai metal.
The gold finish is so "ugly" that I had to sand this Smile. I had already done on Colt Python with, I think, a good result, so I decide to do the same thing for this S&W M19.

Here is the model gun like I receive it :

Ok, we can see some details not very nice :

- The gold finish of course
- The grip which is really ABS (without any weights inside Shocked Shocked )
- The right frame which is not engraved with the Smith & Wesson logo (I still don't know why )

My mission is to make a very nice model gun with this item Smile.....Ok I accept, let's go....

Middle of work :

After work and several days.....


Let's introduce you my new model gun in metal with wood grips:

I can now do a real good review Smile



The first look :

What I receive :

In the box :the model gun, 6 cartridges, a metal loading tool and a very little user's manual.


It's a double action revolver with 6 cartridges in cylinder. This model gun uses 7 mm caps.

It's full metal and the weight is really impressive :

We can see the hammer and the trigger are half-painted black :

I hesitate to remove the black on the hammer and trigger but I decide to keep it like this, the look stay nice like that.



Loading


Just push the ejector button (I don't know the exact word) and push the cylinder too by the right side.

Kokusai Smith & Wesson M19 4 inch Metal gold finish - becomes Silver   IMG_0333

The cartridges are special for Kokusai metal model guns. They are shorter than the carts of Kokusai ABS.

3 parts inside :

Kokusai Smith & Wesson M19 4 inch Metal gold finish - becomes Silver   IMG_0359



You can see it's a blocked barrel. The cylinder is also blocked :

Pull the hammer and push the trigger and BANG six times.


The mechanism of this kokusai is really good, the sound of metal is cooollll Smile


Photos :

I don't have much things to say about this model gun, I prefer show you photos :

To conclude :

Ok, it's a really nice model gun with this silver colour. The metal is here and with the wood grips, I think we can say it's so much better Rolling Eyes
The markings of the frame are missing but maybe I can found one somewhere, anyway, this is a superb model gun, that's all....

PS: I hope you forgive me for all my reviews not very detailed, but write in English isn't easy. I balance it by putting lots of pictures. Laughing Laughing

You've done a beautiful job Momo', very, very nice. The replacement wooden grips look fantastic, what a superb colour they are Very Happy

All the discussions about removing gold plate have inspired me to do the same with my Marushin .44 Automag. It's looking much better already and I'll try posting some photos up once it's finished. Thanks for the inspiration Very Happy

Momocampo, you make me cry.
I wanna do the same with an 6.5" or 8 3/4" as soon as possible!
And I will need tips on the polishing!
Did you ever think of doing a tutorial for cheap noobs like me? Rolling Eyes
