This is my 586-4, circa 1994.

Some people like the L frames; some don't.

I've never really understood why there's so much debate over these. All I can say is this one fits my hand quite well and is a terrific shooter..

What's not to like? The fact that the L frame is just plain stronger than the K frame, is a definite improvement. The K frame is a frame built for .38's.....not .357's. The fact that it makes a lightweight carry gun with .357 capabilities, is a plus for those who make their living carting a gun. That's all it was meant for.......not to be a tank for hot .357's. The L frame was built for that purpose. ;) Bob

Wendy,
That's one of the 7-shot variety, isn't it? I've always thought that was a great idea..

Looks like your revolver is just waiting for a polish job and some wood grips! :p

Thanks for the pictures, Carl. This is cowboy country - Colts and Winchesters. Once those dried up all you see are GLOCKS and SIGs. I see them once in a while - L frames, that is. Never owned one. I have to drive a long way out of El Paso to see a significant number of Smith & Wessons for sale.

doublesharp,
I think you're right about Wendy's gun.

I've always thought if I ever get one, it would get polished.. even if it would make some people cringe. :lol:

Wendy, your gun looks to be a 3" barrel carry comp and the ones I've seen have a matte stainless finish. That's a highly desirable gun but you probably already know that. :cool:
I never knew that it was highly desirable, but thanks for the information. I bought it about 7 years ago NIB.

Got this 586 no dash in an internet trade a couple of weeks ago,but too many handling marks for me. Looks good in the pic though. Sold it to a buddy day before yesterday.
