First time dealing with Buds and am happy with the transaction. Had no issues with the process. The order was at my FFL in exactly one week to the day which is not super fast but is acceptable. I purchased the S&W 686 plus. It was received in the usual condition for S&W and the condition I see in all reviews. Smith and Wesson ships their weapons very dirty and with some scratches. Would have been a little upset if I had not know this as \"normal\" beforehand. Finally got out to the range yesterday and I love the gun. It shots very accurate and is very easy to shoot with the .38 special round. As expected there is substantially more kick with the 357 but still very manageable. Great weapon. No regrets on this one. Won\'t be shooting it too often with the high price and limited selection of 357 and .38 special rounds, but will enjoy on the occasions when in the mood for a good old fashion revolver.

This is simply an excellent gun! Entire family loves it. Accurate, smooth (both single and double action) and consistent. From novice to expert, you will want to have this in your collection. Very little recoil with .38, and manageable with .357 ammo.

Great revolver and fun to shoot. Stainless Steel looks great, the 7 rounds in the cylinder is worth it.

I purchased a S&W 686P .357 Mag 6" 7 rounds and received it on December 10, 2012. I brought it to the range and put in about 150 rounds. Everything was fine, I cleaned it very well, oiled it and put it back in the case and into my safe and has been in the safe ever since. Last night, April 30, 2013 i brought it out to prep it for the range and as I was wiping it, i noticed that there is a crack on the right side of the frame right by the hammer, the crack was not there when I first received it as i was really inspecting it together with my FFL who is a gunsmith, I am very disappointed as I can not believe what I am seeing. The gun is still brand new and looks brand new...the quality is so inferior, unbelievable. Today May 1 2013 i am trying to call S&W customer service and have been listening to a recording for over 30 minutes already. i will give additional feedback as soon as I can get S&W to fix it.

Received this beauty over 3 months ago but refused to review it cause I hadn't shot it yet and one previous review had me paranoid I may have gotten a lemon... Today I finally got a chance to shoot it and I couldn't be more pleased. Shot like a dream, made me look like a better shooter than I am. Very crisp light trigger pull. A true thing of beauty and a privilege to own and shoot. 6th purchase from buds and can't see me purchasing many or any guns from anyone else

This weapon is awsome! I ordered from Buds on 15 Dec and it arrived at my FFL on 20 Dec. No problems and during the Christmas rush and at that. Great job folks! As for the gun, I was debating between 4 and 6 inch barrel. Glad I chose 6 inch. Well balanced. Heard all the warnings about Smith and Wesson sending out their guns dirty. Mine was clean and looks great I usually lean toward the classic blued finish, but this stainless finish is fantastic. The trigger pull is just what I'd expect out of S&W, wonderful. I'm happy with Bud's service and with Smith & Wesson. I'll be back.

Picked up this gun at the FFL. After a quick once over all looked good. Could not get to the range for a couple of weeks until last Friday. At 7 yds. Shot 5 in. to the left. Shot maybe 30 rds. all consistent to the left. Could not adjust sight enough to compensate. Started looking closely at the gun and the barrel is not mated in line with the frame. It is on a slight angle. Took it home a put the laser bore sight on it and and it is off that much. I own 11 other Smiths and did not expect this for a pricey gun. Talked to Smith and of course this is not possible.They said will be in touch in a day or so.Right now not happy at all. Buds was great to deal with but this gun was sorry. PS: My neighbor ordered one also his is fine but has a slightly canted barrel which does not bother him. Smith needs to step up.

I am well pleased with my .357 686P. I ordered it on Tuesday & it was here Friday. It is a well balanced and accurate gun, it looks just like the picture, and i was well pleased with the stock grip! I will continue to buy from Buds in the future, they were very helpful and had promp service!

I have been searching for quite a while trying to find a good shooting wheel gun. Colt stopped making the Python in 2004, which was the ultimate in revolvers IMO, so my next choice was a Smith & Wesson revolver. I wanted something I could take to the range and punch holes in targets without needing a bank loan to buy ammo. S&W makes a plethora of wheel guns so finding the right one for me took a bunch of research. I finally decided on the S&W 686P 357 Magnum 7-round with a 6 inch barrel in stainless. The best thing about this gun and all 357’s is you can shoot 38 specials with less recoil and for less money.

Bud’s had my new toy in my sweaty hands in no time at all. Bud’s makes the buying process painless and that works for me. I had this gun at the range two times now with about 200 holes in my targets. I have yet to shoot 357 mags through this gun so I can’t comment on them but this puppy will drive nails with the 38 specials. I have felt the smooth action of a Colt Python and I got to tell you this gun is a very close second. This gun is a keeper and has a permanent place in my gun safe. I bought 4-HKS speed loaders for this gun and with a little practice you can reload PDQ.
