Nice! I bought one of those, used back in July of 2019. At the time, gun sales were in a slump and sales/rebates were everywhere. The LGS had a 1 day only, cash only, 20% off sale on all their used handguns, and they had a bunch of them. I had been eyeing this 3 inch 686+ for about 6 weeks. It was priced at $599.99. I drove to the shop and was there a few minutes after opening time and quickly snagged the 686. While I was filling out the paperwork the clerk answered a phone call. It was someone asking about the 686. Glad I got there early and with 20% off, I got the gun for $479 and change. Best of all, the test fire date was my birthday!
They shoot just as well as the 4 inch, but I have trouble remembering that 7th shot sometimes

I remember you buying the 686 , I had a 686 Plus Snub with Ahrends.

Nice buy for $479 for a 686! The shops around here charge close to $600. They set their prices by checking the sales at Gun Broker.......which can be high, due to buyer's trying to out do each other! I don't think it's a fair way to price something. They should sell at a true market value!!!!

I only by at reasonable, lower prices.....or they can keep it! Bob

Removed the side plate and no foundry crud like I've found in others, just dabbed out excess oil and installed the back plate . My sister from Iowa is still here and will finish it up with Never Dull when she out visiting with friends this evening
