Greetings one and all...
I'm fairly new to the revolver world, as I'm a 1911 fan of many years.
However, I've finally made a first purchase of a pristine 586 4" no dash.
No holster wear, appears to have been a safe queen.
It does not have the "M" for the upgrade, I'm curious how to go about taking care of that.
Also, I'm looking for some information on production year of this pistol.

MOD.586
I appreciate any help available.
Thank you

Your 586 was shipped in 1980.
Whether you have the firing pin bushing modified or not is up to you. Some people have preferred to not have it done and it has caused them no problems.
Contact Smith at 1-800-331-0852 and they will send you free shipping documents to return your gun to the factory for the mod.
Good luck with your new gun.

LOL yes yes I know, I wondered how long it would take for someone to ask.
Long story short, the digital camera came with a tragic end. It was a Gold Bond Powder and camera in the same bag issue on a recent trip... I'll leave it at that.
Anyway, tomorrow I will secure a new cam and move forward.
I have a custom Colt 1911 Series 70 I just got back from being built as well that still needs to be immortalized.

It should be noted all the white markings are glare from the sun.
There is absolutely no wear on this Betty.
The Blueing, has got to be high 90 percent.

Boy, I'd give real money for my cylinder to look like that. The rest of my 586 is absolutely pristine except for a bald spot at the outside front of each chamber.

They are nice but I never really cottened to them. When they were first announced way back when I bought a 4" nickel with highly figured goncalo alves grips. Shot it a little an its been in the safe ever since. Went back to my 19's & 28's. I like them much better. The only L, I like is my 696. Never been parcial to full lugged barrels. They belong only on Pythons. My $0.02.
