I shot my 681 yesterday afternoon. I am down to three L-frames. The 681 is the only one I really enjoy shooting. It is a sleek looking tack driver, that just points so well. No worries about banging the sights, and it shoots 158 grain rounds to POA.

Many law enforcement agencies went to the fixed sight L-frames just as the wonder nine revolvution was starting. Is that the reason these 681 revolvers are not more popular, or is it that there were comparatively few made?

If I keep liking and shooting this 681 much more, I might have to change my signature. ;) Regards 18DAI.

I think it's because there weren't many made..

I know I'd like to have one, but I haven't run across the right deal yet.

Great post! I've spent years holding the L-Frame Smith & Wesson revolvers in contempt due to the full lugged barrel but, after reading a post by Stephen Camp a few months back, feel I ought to at last add an example to the menagerie. I'm drawn to the fixed sight versions. I think a 4-inch might be a real treat.

Though I have a number of adjustable sighted Smith & Wesson models I like their fixed sight models really well. No muss, no fuss.
