    686-617

    I have question for the members here that know more about Smith's than I do.
    I have a very nice pair of Smith revolvers. they are a model 686 & 617 both with 6" barrels with the wide hammer and trigger both have the patridge front sights. Oh they are both no dash guns. Does that make the unique in any way?

    Thanks

    No dash Smith's are very desirable,as they are the first run of these models,as parts material,etc,Hillary hole,firing pin location changes they start adding dash number like 617-2

    A wide target hammer and trigger would be unusual on a 686. Did you purchase it new that way? Those are also parts that can be fairly easily obtained and swapped out.

    I did buy these both new. I have had them for I don't know how long. The 617 has only seen about 500 rounds and the 686 might have 200 rounds of .38 special fired thru it.
    I'm about to retire and fix that low round count problem!

    Oh yeah. I would fix that round count on both just as soon as feasible. A very nice pair, I'm sure. Pictures, please.

    Two fantastic choices for sending lead down range. I wouldn't say they are unique but both have an excellent resale value but then I would never sell either one.

    OK, I will take pictures this evening. I hadn't forgot about it but I've been under the weather from some new chemo I'm taking.
    I may need help posting pictures if I can't get them to load up.

    Welcome to the forum! Sounds like you have a couple of nice revolvers. Can't wait to see the pics. I have a 6" 686 no dash that is a fantastic gun. Hope you get out soon and have some fun.
    I keep a gun because I'm too young to die and too old to take an ass whoopin'!
