    At my local shop right now

    LNIB 8 3/8" 586 with the factory silhouette front sight. $675

    These are fairly rare. Should I grab it?

    ...need some help from my fellow classic Smith fanatics!! Thanks

    Why are you posting and not filing out paperwork on a 586? :supergrin:

    No dash? I'd grab it, but barrel length really relegates it to a range or hunting gun only.

    If you like it, get it. Not like you can't make your money back if you change your mind.

    The 586/686 is one of my favorite smith revolvers. Especially the older ones with the hammer mounted firing pin and no lock.

    I prefer the 4" duty sized guns, but that would be a fun range gun or deer/pig hunting gun.

    The long barrel gives it limited use. But, it would be really fun to shoot at the range or to hunt with. Also a great looking gun. At that price I'd grab it if I had the money and was looking for a new toy.

    True. I look at the collect-ability of it as well. Smith didn't produce nearly as many 8 3/8" 586s as they did 4 or 6" versions.

    Well guys, I told them to put it in the back for me.

    I'll pick it up later this month.

  11. Bought a 586 8 3/8" new in 1985. Fun and accurate. Like a dummy I sold it about 10 years ago. Shoulda kept it. Replaced it later with a 686-2 6" which is more balanced. But the blued wood target grip long barrel was elegant.

    Get it. 586 is a great gun and not as common as the 686. Long barreled 586s pretty uncommon. I just bought a 4" myself to replace the one I unexplainably traded. What an idiot I was.

    I've sold some guns years ago that I regret as well.

    After my wife shot my 4" 586 she informed me that it was her favorite gun ever .
    I sure do miss that gun but i am happy she has a pistol she feels totally confident
    with.

    Enjoy your 586. My guess is that it is probably about the rarest L frame and very collectible.


    I agree. Ditto. Me too.

    Come visit us. Drive east until you get to the Mountain Time Zone. There are enough GT'ers to feed and put you up for a night or two. We are hospitable type folks.:wavey:

    I got South West Wyoming cover for you. I know that there must be people up in Montana and down in Colorado. The Dakota's too.

    You will have to drive because trying to fly with as many guns that we want you to bring might scare the TSA people!:whistling:
