S&W Performance Center packages

Has anyone had a Combat Revolver package or Master Revolver Action package done by the performance center? I have decided that I don't need any more guns but would rather have my 686 worked over by a professional. The 686 has a pretty good action already but I'd like to know how good it can get with the performance center packages.

The 686 also has a slightly canted barrel that I'd like to have S&W fix which is why I'd prefer to send it to the performance center as opposed to another shop.

The canted barrel would definitely head back to Smith, but I wouldn't pay them to do any action work. I've never been very impressed with a PC action job. You can probably get a better job done locally if you ask around about local gunsmiths. Most likely cheaper too.
As I go through life I keep coming to the same conclusion, people are generally stupid.

S&W PC triggers aren't that good. If I were doing it I'd send it to Clark. It's not all that hard to do the action yourself with just a few tools if you want to try it yourself. My DIY triggers come out better than one I had Clark do and even with buying tools stones jigs and reference material cost less.

I never was overly enthralled with PC revolvers or their actions. Give me an old S&W any day over those.

I do like the PC autos S&W used to build.

Years ago I bought a Model 19-3 that was broke. Cylinder would not turn. Grossly out of time. I sent to the PC. Wow is all I can say. For $250 they did the action, high bright polished the trigger and hammer, recut forcing cone, and refinished the entire revolver. Super accurate now. Heirloom piece and my favorite handgun.

Never had a PC gun.
But I've had great luck with local gunsmiths doing action jobs on my pre-lock S&W guns.

My big Smith N-Frame 629-2 Mountain Gun in particular
has an outstanding glassy trigger on it.

It shoots pretty good too - LOL.
