I have in my possession a S&W Model 19-5 pistol. The odd part is that is has a square, heavy barrel with "E. HOUSE 5-83" stamped on the bottom of it. The cylinder has been chamfered for speed loads and the trigger is is about 2 lbs. SA and 4-5 lbs double action. I was wondering if anyone could help me identify what's up with the square barrel with the E. HOUSE stamp. Was he some sort of custom pistol smith or was this an add-on one could purchase from a catalog?

Here are pictures:




Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If you are LE, I would run serial number of weapon, maybe one of the owners was e.house. That would give you a start. With date on bbl, I would guess thats the date he installed it on that frame, possibly to monitor age of bbl and rounds through it. Let me know if that (or I can) help(s).

I would agree that this barrel was probably installed by someone other than S&W. The name and date could be date of the barrel replacement and the gunsmiths, or a previous owners name. I have never see a barrel quite like this. An experiment perhaps? One thing about it, it sure is an ugly mother.

That gun looks like it was made for "service" matches where the revolver must be under 4 inches in length. The service match isn't however to be confused with a distinguished match. I would guess that E. House would be the smith's name and that it won't be in the gun's history, you could call places like power custom and ask Ron Powers if he knows of anyone who used to make PPC guns by that name.

There was a good PPC shooter from Albany, NY named House. I can't remember his first name. He was Albany PD I think.
