S&W 686 is an extremely accurate, comfortable full-size revolver. While it doesn’t come cheaply, this pistol demonstrates just what you get when you drop the extra Benjamins. Excellent!!!

Awesome gun, I couldn't be happier. I put about 200 rounds through it when I first got it with one round that seemed to have stovepiped after firing- I cleared it and no issues after that. I was in the lane next to my buddy who was firing a Beretta 9mm and you would think I was firing a cannon compared to his gun. I spent a couple of hours after the range cleaning and polishing with Mothers Mag up like Nickel and looks absolutley fantastic- you can seee you reflection in it. I also got some Thai Rosewood grips for it off Ebay and boy does this thing look sweet....I mean sweet! I never plan on getting rid of it and will probably pass it down to the next generation. Buds service was great, I love how they send you emails every step of the way- just bought a 5906 9mm and happy with that too. If they ever get the 686 back in stock buy it.

I love this gun. Very accurate. Easy to shoot. Heavy barrel lug. With hot ammo It recoils and sounds 's like a small cannon, but you can shoot all day and experience no hand pain. Ruger and Taurus make good 357's, but IMHO they can't compare to this S&W's trigger. Also, if you've never bought from Bud's Gun Shop before, I can vouch for them. I've purchased several guns from Bud's and it was always a good experience. Plus no one can beat their prices.

Excellent revolver. Nothing is better than the smooth-as-silk double-action trigger for which S&W is famous. Dead on out the box with Barnes VOR-TX 357 Mag 140 grain XPB hollow points, but shot low when using Remington 38 Special +P 125 grain JSHP. The balance and weight of the L- frame reduced the felt recoil of these rounds to next to nothing. I am glad that I trade my Taurus M82 38 Special +P, which had a long, gritty trigger pull and greater felt recoil when using the Remington round, for this gun. Yes, the S&W was more expensive than the Taurus, but it well worth it.

Excellent hand gun. Very good balance. No problems at all. Best .357 I have owned.

I've known for a while that my next gun was going to be a S&W 686. What I couldn't decide on for the longest time was whether to go with the 6" or the 4" barrel. After going to some local shops and getting a feel for each I decided to go with the 4" barrel and that was definitely the right decision! It balances well in my hand, yet still big enough to take the recoil of the .357. I didn't want to just go with the flow when buying this gun, but there is a reason why most 4" S&W are sold out at most gun shops these days. Quality operation and a beauty to look at!
