I went into a gun shop last week, they had 3 686s there. A 6 inch, 4 inch and a 2 1/2 inch. The 6 and 4 were priced at 699, the 2 1/2 750. I was sure this was a mistake. I asked the the clerk, why so much for the shorter barrel than the longer ones. Now it gets good. He told me that the shorter barrels sell less and makes them harder to come beye. Is that a crock ? Anyways doesnt it cost more to make a longer barrel, than a short one ? Maybe ive missed something here, or he was just retarted, Your thoughts.
