Arrived at my FFL today, unboxed and it looks better then the pictures. It is very dirty, I guess from test firing. Feels great in the hand, natural pointer, and the L frame is just about right if I wanted to CCW. Appears to be a quality piece after a close inspection and I expect nothing less for the price Smith charges for a revolver. Handgun #16 from Bud's and not a hiccup, thanks guys. I would like to use one of several local gun shops to support my town, but none of them can come close to the price Bud's has and they don't offer a layaway plan

Beautiful gun, Great service! Very happy with the gun, love the grips and unfluted cylinder, very good looking. Buds service was top notch as usual! No complaints.

This is a decent firearm. Based on the 686 barrel cant issues I asked Buds to look at it before they shipped it to me. They told me they don't open the firearms and won't look at them, but were very polite and clear that if there was any issue to let them know and not transfer it, that they would let me return it. When I went to the transferree, I was suspicious and while I wasn't "anal" about inspecting the revolver, I did check the barrel for cant, and the front/rear sight for level. I also checked the cylinder rotation through all 7 cylinders to check for any binding. All of these have been 686 issues. I was especially concerned since 2/4 reviews at buds "said" they had cylinder cant. The firearm I received appears to be correct. If there is anything, -maybe- and I say -maybe- a 1 degree under cant, but that's even questionable. I have not fired the weapon, but based on my inspection it appears correct. It cycles through all cylinders with no binding. I was concerned, but appear to have lucked out. If anything would change after firing, I suppose that would be an issue, but based on the product I received I'm very happy. I wish Bud's would inspect prior to ship in rare cases, but I appear to have gotten lucky. Buds is great as always though. They also price matched. Great place to order online.

This my first Smith & Wesson. The 686 3-5-7 talo 3\" feels substantial in your hand. Looks bad ass! I love the feel. They definitely nailed it based on the guns appearance. I ordered on a Sunday night, the gun was at my FFL on Thursday, so as good as it gets in regards to delivery from Buds. But, the gun arrived with the barrel canted, and a nice gouge on the barrel that I can\'t fix myself. The cylinder already had a light turn line, something none of my Rugers ever arrived with. S&W customer service did send me a prepaid FedEx label, so I shipped the gun back today (picked it up at my FFL yesterday). This gun should have never left the factory as I received it. Disappointed yes, hoping they correct whats needed. I\'m not picky, but come on, this is a $700 revolver. A straight barrel and a gouge free gun should be expected. Still, I\'m looking forward to shooting it when I get it back.

There is something about a 3\" revolver that just feels good. This didn\'t disappoint until I took it to the range. The revolver was shooting way to the left and after adjusting the sights as far as I could, I realized the front sight post was leaning to the right. After a closer inspection the barrel was not installed correctly, needing to be turned another 1/16 of a turn or so. I have heard rumors of quality being a problem at S&W but have never thought much about it as I have never had an issue with any of the umpteen revolvers that I own. I guess I finally get the opportunity to try out their legendary customer service. Great looking gun - finish is excellent. Feels great in the hand, very handy size. I just can\'t bring my self to shoot \'gangsta\' style in order to get a normal sight picture.

I tried a 686 plus at the range and immediately wanted one. Shopping for one led me to this beauty. I really love the styling of the black laminate wood grips and the strong look of the 3 inch barrel paired with the unfluted 7 shot cylinder. Needless to say it's my new favorite and someone has their hands full trying to convince me that there is a better revolver out there.
