To keep it brief, this is my second 686 purchase and I absolutely love it. Having purchased a 4” I wanted something more compact but capable of the same power and this 2.5” exceeds my expectations. The beefiness is there but in a compact package. If you are looking for a revolver but want a compact one, look no further than the 686 2.5”.

This is my 3rd Smith and Wesson revolver and the the quality is to-notch like the other two. The gun shot true right out of the box. It is a heavy gun, this helps tame the recoil of the .357 magnum loads. I have had it on the range 4 times now with a total of 500 rounds. The trigger action is good, in either single or double action. i purchased the 7 - shot version with a 2 1/2" barrel I highly recommend this gun to anyone looking for a solid, quality .357 magnum revolver. As usual, Bud's was easy to deal with and there were no issues.

Great gun for CCW. Reliable and powerful .357 mag. You cannot go wrong on 7-shooter S&W quality revolver. Budsgunshop is the best. Great price with great service as the case in previous purchases. Thanks Bud.

The S&W M686 Plus 7RD 357MAG/38SP +P 2.5" I purchased from Bud's, arrived as indicated in the email I received. The gun was in new condition with no visible flaws. However, after firing it at the range, I began having occasional misfires. I emailed S&W and they sent an overnight FEDX mailing slip at no cost to me. The fixed the problem and within two weeks I got my gun back. S&W service has always been first class.

This is a stellar weapon. Seven rounds of .357 magnum in a concealed carry package is a powerful option. I have taken this to the range many times and it is accurate with great trigger action. It is one of my "go to" every day carry weapons. I also own this weapon with the 4" barrel version, but wanted the 2.5" barrel iteration as a concealed self-defense revolver. Buds was, per usual, efficient in its processing and shipping. The S&W arrived timely at my FFL with no defects of any type. The S&W 686 Plus has rightly accrued many accolades in the gun industry periodicals and on YouTube reviews. There is a reason for that. It is an excellent weapon and one that deserves your attention. If you are a wheel gun fan, this is virtually a "must have."

Quality piece, but a bit heavy for carry. Love the way it shoots and the 7 round capacity. Very solid, no problems.
