Nothing negative about this finely made gun! Absolutely beautiful! It arrived in only two days from Buds to my FFL dealer. Got it that evening. It was in new condition, no stains, no powder, no nothing, it was exceptionally clean!
The tolerances on this gun were very tight and precise...nothing loose or sloppy. Trigger pull, as with S&M revolvers is a little hard, but perfect for me...in single action, the trigger pull is light as a feather...hardly any pressure at all to pull!
This 686P is a "little" on the heavy side, but it's perfect for me for CWC...does not print with my shoulder holster....I'll be getting a Galco high side holster from Buds when they come back in stock.
I also ordered the Crimson Trace Laser grips for this gun....the grips fit perfect the first time!
The gun shoots great...spot on and also with the laser grips added...no adjustment needed.
This gun fires .357 magnum, .38, .38 special and .38 special + P.....it's nice to have a gun that uses four different types of ammo.....so the .38s can be used for practice, target shooting, etc. then it was recommended that I use .38 special hollow points for self defense.....
The .357 magnums, of course, kicks a little bit, but nothing to be concerned about.....the .38 ammos are all a blast to practice with.
I'm more than happy with this Smith & Wesson 686P...It's real nice to have an extra round in the cylinder, and this was a main feature that influenced me to buy....it's one great all around gun in my collection....I have nothing but praise for Smith and Wesson.
Of course, I have the highest praise for BudsGunShop! These guys are the nicest, most efficient people ever to work with....the transaction went so smooth....they constantly kept me informed of my status of my order, let me know when it was sent out, no problems at all....I can't believe a company this terrific exists in today's world.......their prices beat out everyone else! I can't say enough nice things about BudsGunShop! I will always buy from the for their excellent service and devotion to their customers......and hopefully, if I keep saying good things about these guys, I'll get a free sample or something!
Hat's off to BudsGunShop AND Smith & Wesson.............a great company and a fantastic well made revolver....it's just beautiful!
