Personally, I prefer the look without the "Pro Series" etching, so I think I would decline even if they offered to add it. Now I'm mostly interested to learn if it was just an error or something along the lines of what was suggested by ussmanlovede36If I remember correctly, S&W declined it under warranty, saying it was only cosmetic.
Like this? Lol!My 5" 686-6 came with "Rappy" engraved on the barrel and a Raptor dinosaur logo on the frame. I contacted S&W and they could not explain the engraving but told me that it was a Pro Shop gun even tho' it is not so marked.
Well, son of a gun ..... ! Yep, that's my "Rappy" 'cept mine has a 5" barrel. When I contacted S&W they had no info on it. I guess it depends on who responds to the inquiry.Like this? Lol!

This S&W Model 686 SSR Pro Series "Rappy" Revolver was a special-edition, manufactured as an export for the Italian market. It is part of our S&W Archive Collection - a collection of rare Smith & Wesson firearms that are all brand-new, in original condition, but no longer manufactured.
