    Smith and Wesson 686

    Good day! my friend is offering me his 2nd hand Smith and Wesson model 686. It is has a 4 inches barrel and in good condition about $1,175 US less 5%. The brand new is worth $ 1,619 US here in Philippines. Should I take it? Thanks!

    You'll have to be the judge on this as there is no way that someone in the US can say if that's a good price for the Philippines. In the US a used 686 can be brought on average for less than $650.

    The 686 is a great revolver, but you also need to know that what's being sold is a 686 "no-dash", which is the first year production version. The 686 no dash and 686-1 was the subject of a recall by S&W.

    With certain types of .357 magnum ammo , typically a high velocity lighter weight bullet load, along with a soft primer, would case the primer to "flow back" into the firing pin bushing hole and prevent the cylinder from turning, which caused the gun to become jammed. Now this wasn't a wide spread issue with the early 686's, if you stick with the regular 158gr. bullet weight ammo, there shouldn't be a problem.

    Seems to me like the soft primer extruded itself into the firing pin hole, but how?

    The hole for the firing pin in the firing pin bushing is oversized, allowing the soft brass to flow into it under pressure.

    The same thing can happen in rifles with oversized firing pin holes in their bolts, but the results are usually a pierced primer and a ruined firing pin.

    It's no wonder why they have an indigenous firearms history, ala Armscor. That price is ridiculous here in the US! Couple that with the fact that wages and cost of living in the Phil is about 10% of what it is here! My gosh!

    I just remembered that on my trip there last year, I saw an unarmed female PNP officer at the regional airport. I asked her, and she said that she simply couldn't afford a gun yet! They make about $300mo.!
