Could be. At one point the M19 was a very popular police gun. In fact, that is what it was designed for. A gun light enough that you could carry it all day, but with the power of the .357 Magnum. It was at least partly the brainchild of Bill Jordan of the US Border Patrol. If they are ex-police, most likely have a lot of holster wear and not too many rounds through them. If you are considering one, have it checked carefully, as a steady diet of full house .357 loads will loosen one up fairly quickly.

A M19 is one of the best feeling and shooting handguns around. If you find a good one you will love it.

The heavy barreled one may have been a PPC (Police Pistol Competition) gun, or a Bianchi Cup gun.

They usually have what appears to be lots of holster wear, the blue is really worn on the cylinder. I have got to stop looking at revolvers, I don't really have any money for one

Great gun, congratulations. I picked up a 6" a couple of years ago and really like it, but wish it was a 4". I removed the "Goodyear" ugly rubber grips and replaced them with some nicer wood ones. Very accurate handgun, I find that I can shoot mine as well as I can shoot a .22 rifle with open/iron sights.

Drool. I wanted one of those in the worst way before I got my 22/45. For my budget the Ruger was the better choice, but I am still gonna want one of those 617s

They arre usually pretty rough and need trigger work, this one did but the guy I got it from did that and a refinish on the stock and it's really nice now. Got it for a whopper of a $75.00 price.

How do they shoot? I was thinking that it would be an inexpensive shooter.

I was also thinking I would refinish the wood. Not sure what to do with the mechanicals.
