I know the debate of the internal lock has been going on for a long time. I don’t like them as much as the next guy but have several J frame with them and never had a problem. Today I purchased a used 686-6 3” classic deluxe for a reasonable price. I got it home and have been messing with it all day. I am concerned because when the gun is held at a 90 degree, straight in the air the trigger locks up. I know you wouldn’t shoot in the air but if you were ever in a combative situation the gun will not fire shooting upside down. Rare chances but I want my gun to not have any doubt when I squeeze. I can physically watch the lock slide up to lock the hammer and it can be pressed down with my fingernail to get the gun back into battery. Any suggestions? Send it back to smith?
