Requests for a lighter magnum revolver were answered in 1955 with the .357 Combat Magnum (Model 19), a K-frame revolver with a heavy barrel and an ejector rod shroud to provide recoil-dampening weight.

This was followed by the stainless steel Model 66, which was an instant hit with civilian shooters and police. But there was a downside. When fed a steady diet of magnum ammo, these K-frame revolvers sometimes shot themselves loose or went out of time.
