    Thanks guys! I'm certainly diggin it. It'll hold me over till i find my python.
     
  8. That is a beautiful 686 with the combat-style grips but, I just cannot get past the lock. Just do not like the look being spoiled (my opinion only) of a great revolver by a hole in the right side and recontour of the gun's frame because of the lock.

    Anyway, if you are happy, congrats and enjoy a great S&W revolver. I am having trouble getting used to the round-butt frame being used on all length's of barrels too. The original 686's only came with a round-butt frame if you purchased a 2 1/2" bbl. model. It looks nice with a round-butt frame, just different. The original 686's had a square-butt frame on the 4", 6", and 8" models with the 2 1/2' model being the only one with a round-butt frame. At least as far as I know but I could be wrong.

    Congrats on getting a great shooter of a .357mag gun and I am sure it will be a great gun.

    I have owned a 686 for over a decade. I took it out yesterday to shoot. It is a 6 incher and it shoots like a dream. I am auto guy all the way... But that 686 is sweet. Congrats on yours, it will be a favorite for a long time to come.-- Rob
