    686 5"

    I know there's fans and not-so-fans of these, but I think they're pretty darn nice. Maybe a 3" next...

    Put me on the "Fan" list. I have a 686-3 6", although it has a fluted cylinder I love it. Fun to shoot, and FAR FAR more accurate than the shooter.

    I too bit, a 686+ 5" Talo. Not too big a fan of the factory grips, still adjusting to the seventh round. At the moment mines' wearing Pacmayer gripper grips. I'm thinking maybe a round butt to square conversion, maybe Houge.

    Your empressions?

    I like the grips - I can't tell if they are 'wood grain' or wood. When removed they look like some sort of composite. But I could be wrong, and often am!

    I have not shot magnum rounds thru it yet, probably Pach's or Hogue's would feel better?

    I have always had a fondness for the five inch barrel. Here are two of my five inch 686's, the 686 on the bottom is a 4 inch Mountain Gun. Hank

    I am partial to the 3" barrel, so that is a great 'next' one.
    I can not abide useless people.

    My first 686 was a NIB 6". The second one, and by very far my favorite one, is a pre-lock 4". I shoot 357, +P and .38 through it. So versatile and sooooooo shiny!
