Not a huge review but as this is a new model just released by Tanaka thought i would post.

This is the first (to my knowledge) that Tanaka have released a 6 inch barrel version of the M19, they have done every other barrel length but for some umknown reason never the 6. So when they announced that finally they were releasing it i had to have one. I have posted many times that the 6 inch M19 was a gun i owned when they were still legal and it was a great gun, so its a model that be it airsoft or modelgun if a new improved model comes out i have to have it.

So a day ago it arrived and i am very pleased, it has a good weight to it as weight has been added to the grips, its solid and works well, plus the rounds are real size, they are not on my other models.
It has a wider hammer spur and wider trigger and thats about it.
Tanaka will probably bring out a more blued finish one at some stage and i will probably have to have that as well.

Cheers, a short review as apart from the 6 inch barrel, wide trigger and hammer there is no difference to the other M19 models they do.

Good looking model gun and nice review.

These are really quite interesting, does the plastic have tiny metal flakes infused into it, I agree a more blued version might be nice, too.


PS. I own a real M19 and it is one of my favorite revolvers to shoot.

Hi pitfighter, first off not sure about the metal bits in, i dont think so as the weight has been put in the grips. Now tanaka have finally released the 6 inch i am sure they will do a blued and stainless at some stage.

I have to say i am envious of the your pic , diamandback, M19 and is that a M29?, The python is one gun i would of loved but could not afford, the first time i heard of diamondback was John waynes McQ, very very nice guns mate. As i said i did have the 19 and S&W 745 no pics of the 745 but a pic of me and the 19 in a Wales quarry about 1980, when we could still own firearms in this very democratic country of the UK.
Loaded my own and it ws a great gun hence why i have to have any model that comes out and is legal in this country. Again mate very very envious.

Yes, indeed, I agree, that is a very action-packed picture, Claymore - perfect weaver stance!
You need it poster size in your office!

I have a few guns, owning is half-work:half-pleasure now.
I've started cataloguing photographing my knife/gun collection for my instagram page, but, I'm too busy with life and wish I could spend more time just playing with guns and knives, lol: https://www.instagram.com/fairbairn_sykes/
*You may be able to determine my English roots with the collection.

I actually bought the Diamondback because it's the same (or similar) revolver Steve McQueen carried in Bullit. but yes, John Wayne, carried a 4" barrel version, too.
Personally I don't like shooting it too much, the action is 70's Colt factory so it's smooth as glass, but the trigger is just way to narrow (perhaps it's my delicate fingers, lol.)
The Smith is simply a more enjoyable revolver to shoot.

It's all fun stuff, looking for an MKB42 Shoei - if anyone has one?

Wow! pitfighter that is some collection and i like the fairbairn_sykes, used to have one but somewhere somehow i lost it and never got around to getting another.
Weaver stance ha yeah does anyone still do that or is it too old school.
Again brilliant collection very envious.

Yes, I have knee-jerk "buy" problem with original Fairbairn Sykes First Patterns.
I just found another in the UK, which I am going to have to buy, lol.

The weaver stance is a great stance for shooting the bigger-bore handguns from, I think the FBI stopped training it because of the large body area exposed to the enemy, or something.
Massad Ayoob talks about it a lot.
A fun piece: https://www.shootingillustrated.com/content/top-five-shooting-stances/

I feel like I have mucked up your thread and lovely review and pics on the M19 Modelgun.
Which I enjoyed, so apologies for that.

Keep up the good wrk!
