S&W 686 .357 for sale 4 in

Recommended Posts

If I didn't already have one but mine has a six inch barrel I'd jump on this.  Great deal for a pre-lock.

Origional owner, but I can't find the box. No lock, and I don't see any dash mark after the 686.

Even better for collectors.   No dash is nice.

Do you have original grips?  What is the serial # range?

OT but, what does the dash indicate--mine is a dash 4?

It means that yours was 4th engineering change.  Each time there a change, the dash # increases by one.  So, no dash implies original model.  Dash One is the first change, etc.  Hope this helps.

Regardless of the -#;  the 686 is one of the finest, most fun to shoot revolvers ever made. How can you not love a gun called the "Distinguished Combat Magnum?" :D

I find it quite sweet right out of the box, nice trigger for stock!

I had a beautiful blued 6" that I got for Christmas my Freshman year in college.  I shot the crap out of it for 2 years, then sold it in order to buy Christmas presents for my family.  I miss that gun.

My first centerfire Smith was a 686, traded it for a 2 1/2" Model 19-2, which I stupidly traded for something else (not that I don't remember, but don't want to admit).
