This is a smooth revolver. On a scale of 10, I rate it a 10. Smith and Wesson revolvers are the best. This revolver will last forever. Buds, thank you so much for the speedy delivery. This will be my third weapon that I have purchased from Buds. You can not go wrong with Buds.

What else can I say, it is a dream handgun. Smith & Wesson quality surely amazes. Owning pre-lock era S&W's, I can't tell the difference. Out of the box it fires amazingly well, even with full 357 mag rounds. The overall comfort of the gun, especially when firing the heavier loads is exceptionally complimented by a sturdy frame. When shifting to .38's, this sturdiness rises to a level of total control over the gun. I couldn't be any happier with the 4" model, which is why I have a 2.5" snubnose 686 plus on order as well. If you are considering a revolver, the 686 plus is well worth the investment and Bud's cash price is one of the best you will find online.

Great feeling revolver, and the 7 shot is nice to have. It's a beautiful pistol, and had enough weight to reside recoil, but not too heavy to make it difficult to steady. Everyone needs one.

Fell in love with this revolver and after doing a lot of research, found that it would be a great gun to fit my needs. While probably not the best option for someone who wants to deep conceal in a summer t-shirt and shorts, I have no problem doing so with a light jacket and a Galco high ride holster. That said, I also open carry frequently in a gun-friendly state. Pros: Good balance, and absorbs recoil better than my smaller frame revolvers. Frankly, a sexy looking piece of machinery. Quality build as expected from Smith & Wesson; tight lockup, appropriate sized tight gap between the cylinder and the forcing cone. Easily passes the credit card test. Was clearly test fired at the factory, as evidenced by powder residue that was easy to clean up once home. This particular model is also great because I can feed it the same ammo my backup gun uses, 38 special, while also having the option to load more powerful magnum rounds if you are in areas with dangerous wildlife. Cons: Heavier than your standard polymer Glock. It\'s stainless steel, not plastic after all. Personally I like that quality; it won\'t let you forget that you\'re carrying, but some people will find it unsuitable because of that. In my opinion it would still make a great home defense weapon in either case. Can\'t really think of any other cons. The grips are something a lot of people have their own personal opinions on; I found the stock grips to be comfortable and utilitarian, but man I just think black rubber grips are so generic and ugly. I promptly replaced them with some beautiful rosewood Altamont company grips which really creates a nice contrast with the stainless finish.

The gun was delivered on time. However, the finish has some flaws. For example, the roll marks on the right front at the crane were overbuffed. I almost did not take delivery of the gun, However, I have a lot on my plate at the present time, so I accepted the gun. However, Next time I purchase a gun, I would not tolerate this. Finish may not lead to reliability, but it leads to better resale. On a positive note, the gun shoots well. 7 shots with a 357 revolver is a unique design. The trigger also has a great feel. I am surprised Smith and Wesson would let the finish get by qc. for the finish. This aint no polymer gun; it is a stainless revolver. Of course it is not a custom shop signature.

I love this revolver. Accurate, stout, 7-rounds. The factory grips are ok. Replaced with Hogues.
