Because I read reviews, I leave reviews. For anyone contemplating buying this gun, or the variations available with different grips, you will likely not be disappointed. Perhaps you've watched the Hickok45 youtube videos like I did. I agree with him in that this is a "sweet gun". He gets juiced up about his and I can see why. It arrived in perfect shape. Trigger pull was a bit tight out of the box so I put some snap caps in and started dry firing daily to practice and loosen things up, which worked. I bought this partly to work on trigger discipline so I did not want something overly light. It's a smooth pull that is not difficult...and it's plenty fun to shoot. It handles .38 specials easily and I had no issues with .357 either, but of course they make a bigger bang. I don't have Popeye arms and still had no problem maintaining control...if that helps to clarify. If you buy one, chances are you will be pleased. Good luck!

Beautiful gun but CANTED barrel. Saw that at FFL, thought it\'s a s&w and I might be able to live with it. Took it out to the range for zeroing and it was unbearable. The front sight post was was leaning to the right and was a complete distraction. Initially, I thought the last front sight was bent due being banged or dropped. But finally I realized that the whole barrel was not aligned. Bud, please check your s&w revolvers for such obvious problem before passing it on to the buyers like us.

I absolutely love this gun. The 3" barrel provides just the right size and balance. Accuracy is great. I've bought a number of guns from Buds and the price and service are always great.

I have been doing buisness with Gurney & Buds for several years. I have never never never had a bad experience with Buds. I traded in a 2" & a GP100 4" both in 357 in magnum for this Smith 686 plus 3" in 357 magnum 7 shot. It arrived in pristine condition. Not a scratch more dirty nothing. I was perfect. The whole tranaction took from last Monday to today, Tuesday. I put 125 rounds through it. Half were 38 sp +P 130 gr. Winchester ammo FMJ mith & Wesson.
