When I inspected the revolver prior to accepting it I found a mangled, roughly two-inch long warning sticker haphazardly (but firmly) stuck to the barrel and the front sight. This was disappointing, and distracting. Nonetheless, I accepted the shipment, along with a Taurus revolver that I had ordered at the same time. On closer inspection at home, and after a good cleaning (including removing the sticker and its residue from the barrel), I noticed a couple of other issues: a small nick on the front sight ramp, and very faint "spider web" scratches on the sides of the frame. This being my first stainless firearm I am not sure if the scratches are just a byproduct of the polishing process, but I don't see them on the cylinder or the barrel, and I have never noticed such scratches on any of my blued weapons. Then I discovered that the sight elevation screw will not turn, an issue which I will need to take up with S&W. Beyond the slight cosmetic issues, I found the stock grips to be much too small for my admittedly large hands, particularly as there is a lot of weight forward. I solved that problem with a nice set of aftermarket grips which have much better feel and control. And they look great in the bargain. Nonetheless, if I had actually laid eyes and hands on the weapon before I bought it - I wouldn't have. In the end though, I quite like it, and I am going to hold on to it...now that I CAN hold on to it.

5" 686 plus....what's not to love. Only thing could make it better is if it was FREE

This is a fine piece. The grips seemed a little small to me so I replaced them with an Altamont set. Really enjoy shooting it now.

This revolver is a stunner. Single action trigger is light and crisp, double action is Smith all the way through. Rear sights are easily adjustable and front sight is nice and bright. The five inch barrel is perfect in terms of balance, being long enough to get great velocity out of 357 rounds and short enough to be handy. The full length under lug helps tame 125 grain hot loads making recoil very manageable. 38 special is a delight to shoot out of this revolver. I did not think I would like the wooden grips but they look good and fit my hands well. Accuracy is great as with most revolvers. I would imagine this revolver goes out of stock quick so if you get the chance, don't pass it up.

Probably my all-time favorite 357 revolver. Great trigger and action. Finish was great and the beautiful wood grips made the revolver a beauty.

Very nice revolver ! Grips are very comfortable for me. Action felt slightly rough at first, but 50 rounds and a good clean and lube fixed that.

Holly Molly... buds comes through once again. This firearm is awesome. I signed for it and put 50 rounds through it with no problems. The gun looked like it had been fired and put in the case wet, if you know what I mean... but I cleaned it up once I got her home and all was well.

I had been studying 686 Plus revolvers for months before deciding on this one. It's a beautiful gun, and it's great that it's a 7 shot. But the devil is in the details. If you're like me and care about fit and finish, check your 686 over very closely before taking delivery at your local FFL. I checked mine, but not close enough. The crane / cylinder arm doesn't match up with the frame on mine. Plus there are tooling mark / small gouges on the frame on top of the gun where the barrel is installed into the frame. I have sent it back to Smith and Wesson to be looked at, and hopefully they will fix the issues. For $750 round numbers, I was disappointed. I didn't fire the gun because I didn't know how that would affect the outcome with S&W, but the action felt top notch. The 5" barrel balances very well in hand.

I love this gun. Despite shooting 357 magnum ammo, this gun handles it extremely well. I'm especially pleased after I replaced the grips with Hogue rubber grips. Feels perfect in my hands.The look of this gun with it's stainless steel finish and unfluted cylinder is tremendous. I get looks all the time at the range.
