S&W Gets New Shoes

I picked up this S&W 586 (no dash) a couple of months back. It came with some rubber Pachmyer grips which had to go immediately. But otherwise it was solid mechanically and had good finish.

(Still to find: N-frame .357, K-frame .38, and something J-frame. Preferably a pre-J Magnum frame.)
