Who has one? What do you think?
Love the .357 Blusterbuss
The L frame is one of my favorites, and I love my 686. The SSR just seems fugly to me. I like the more traditional lines on a wheel gun. YMMV.
Get a standard pre-lock 686. They're beautiful. The SSR is hideous, as are many of the new Smiths.
For the same price as the 686SSR, you can buy a 627 Pro - a 4" x8 .38/.357M revolver. Mine is a delight, but I don't 'compete' where 6 rounds are required. Here is my 627 Pro sporting some JM grips and a HiViz sight:
Also shown is my 2 5/8" PC627 UDR - the so called 'Blood Work' re-release. They run ~$100 over the 627 Pro price. Both are moonclip ready and will use the '5 Star Firearms' loading baseplate and speedloader, both nicely machined aluminum and can load .38's & .357M's. Just a thought.
