I just looked up one for my S&W 19-2... evilbay $270, crimson $319.00! I might just stick with my 5 D-cell mag-lite
Your model 19 is a very fine gun (they’ve even started remanufacturing a version of it again) but it does demonstrate one of the big downsides that CT has namely the cost. Although truthfully accessorizing any weapon especially older models can get frightfully expensive very quickly. On a slightly different side note, if you’re model 19 has some personal (as in a family history or heirloom) you might want to consider not using it for self-defense. If it’s the only thing you have that is one thing but if you do end up using it in self-defense, depending on the jurisdiction you are in, there is a very good chance you would not get it back or the legal costs might far exceed the replacement costs. The rule here is don’t use a weapon for self-defense that you’re not willing to have destroyed or you lose possession of to save your life or the life of others. This would include your extremely fancy totally tricked out and expensive firearm.

I bought it used from a local gun-smith/power-plant head of security, no heirloom here, just a fairly well refined tool.
