Re: Smith & Wesson revolver question
I'm a former LE S&W Revolver armorer and I checked the manual for the rear and front gauge. The Model 19 should gauge between .012 and .018 in the rear and between .004 and .010 in the front. These are factory specifications. The Model 60 is the same in the front but between .062 and .068 in the rear. Each part of a S&W revolver must be properly fitted or it will cause problems in the proper function of other parts. If there is any doubt in what you're doing, I suggest you enlist the help of a qualified S&W revolver smith.
