  4. New to me S&W 686-4 Target Champion: A European Traveler

    S&W Revolvers 1945 to Present
    These Model 686-4’s were made from 1992 to 1996 and then shipped to Germany from 1993 to 1996 for distribution to the European market. They were first worked over by S&W's Performance Center where a match barrel, target hammer, and target trigger were installed and fitted. In Frankonia, Germany...
  5. Model 28 or a 686?

    S&W Revolvers 1945 to Present
    I joined the S&W (and revolver, for that matter) club with a used Model 10-10 courtesy of our "friends" at the California Department of Corrections. I love it, but I'm looking to upgrade to a proper .357 Magnum revolver and get a revolver with better sights at the same time. Currently, I'm split...
  6. 686+ Pro?

    S&W Revolvers 1945 to Present
    I handled one recently; 4" barrel. But I haven't seen anything about this model and the folks at that lgs didn't know anything about it. Does anyone here have any info to share?
  7. First One I have seen...

    S&W Revolvers 1945 to Present
    I found a 686-6 this morning in a configuration I have not seen before. It is a Talo offering. Model 686-6 7" barrel, grips marked 357, and unfluted cylinder. The SCSW mentions them but doesn't say much. I suppose I could email or call Talo Distributing to ask how many were sold. That is always...
  8. New member with cracked 357 686 frame

    New Members Introduction
    My 686 has a crack near the hammer on the frame. It is cracked all the way through the steel. I have only shot 38 special and 357 standard rounds. The gun is approximately 22 years old and I am the original owner. Any one ever seen this happen before.

    I am really only looking for this specific model, I would also be interested in a 3" 686-4+ however I'm not sure that was ever made. I promise to post back if I am no longer in the market, so as long as this is up I'm interested! Thanks!

  12. 686 Age? Part of an estate

    S&W Revolvers 1945 to Present
    I've recently been contacted by a friend who's father just passed away. His dad had a stainless S&W 686 that he found in a closet. It looks like it has hardly ever been fired. He offered to sell it to me rather than have it go to an auction. It would make a good companion to my 36-1 Chief's...
  13. 686 Optics rail?

    S&W Revolvers 1945 to Present
    I've done some research, yet I still can't locate a weaver or picatinny rail I like for my 686. Any one know of one they'd recommend? I'm looking to mount an Aimpoint Micro on her for fun. Also if you know of a good site to get new iron sights at. The stock are fine, but I'd like something...
