    New to me L frame 586 no dash no M

    Picked this up last weekend while shopping for graduation presents. Needless to say I may have scored the best present of all. It's a sweet shooter and in great overall shape. I doubt I will ever send it back to the mothership for the M recall since I handload and dont every shoot hot lightweight projectile loads.

    Btw it's a great shooter like most of my Smith wheelguns

    Excellent find. Congrats on a real nice 686. Only thing I would change is add a pair of wood Target Grips.

    That's a nice looker there. You'll not miss not having the M mod... I have 2 586's and 2 686's and only one has been sent back, no issues experienced with any of them with factory or hand loaded ammo since I avoid the below conditions.

    The conditions that resulted in the "M" recall was very specific... lightweight (110 gr. bullet), high velocity & soft (federal) primer. In fact, the occurrences wasn't all that numerous... S&W started getting some reports from LE Agencies, and went into damage control to nip things in the bud.

    Remember, the time period when this occurred was when S&W was locked in battle with Glock trying to hold onto to their precious LE sales market, they could not afford to have any bad PR... too bad, because as it turned out, the swan song for revolvers as a duty weapon had already been sung and the die cast for pistols to take over.

    I have a 4" nickel 586 that I bought when they came out way back. I never sent mine back and have never had a problem.

    I have a a no dash 586 that's never given me any trouble. I wouldn't worry about having it "fixed" by S&W.
