Amazing Firearm. It came in excellent condition, factory new as advertised, and it also came as scheduled.

A fantastic revolver, I had some trouble at first with accuracy, but that was because I was used to firing with a full grip, I switched to the rubber grip that comes with the gun and I was driving nails with it. A very beautiful revolver and well worth the money. Not terribly hard to conceal, I mostly roll shoulder holsters but OWB and IWB are possible. Night sight dot is pretty tiny but you can mostly pick it up. This revolver is well worth your money if you are a wheel gun fan.

If you’re debating on buying the L comp, just buy it. It is without a doubt 100% worth the higher price compared to other models of revolvers. Wasn’t sure how great the compensator would be with full house magnum loads but it is by far the sweetest shooting revolver I’ve shot. I bought this planing to carry it everyday during the winter season but I can quickly see this being carried often during the summer as well. The quality and finish is great, no tooling marks or issues like that. It comes with 2 moon clips that do a decent job at holding the rounds tight but different ammo loaders use different thickness necked brass so you will have to choose the corresponding moon clips if you want more. It was accurate and grouped as good as I could shoot it. In my opinion the 3”inch barrel is the best compromise for wanting to conceal carry this model gun comfortably. The grips are very nice and look even better in person. You will not be disappointed if you choose to pull the trigger on this 586 L Comp

Excellent product, but more importantly, the service from Bud's Gun Shop is superb. I highly recommend Bud's.

Beautiful revolver, shoots great ,good fit in my hand. I like the heft of this revolver and it did not have near the kick I thought it would have with the 3' barrel, the kick was very manageable. Also Buds was great.

This is a beautiful gun. I love to carry it everywhere. I have had it for a few weeks, and I have shot over 300 rounds through it. I personally prefer to use moon clips with the gun. They help to stabilize the cartridges and prevent them from sliding around in the cylinder. It also performs flawlessly without moonclips. I have shot a variety of .357 Magnum and .38 Special cartridges, and all shoot fine. The gun is exactly as described and pictured. It arrived flawless at my FFL. I placed my order at Bud's on Friday and had the gun in my hands in Houston on Monday. Since then, I have ordered and received many boxes of ammo from Bud's, and all has gone very smoothly. This gun has really made me fall in love with revolvers, so I am looking forward to my next purchase from Bud's.

Be wary of barrel can%u2019t when taking transfer. S&W method of screwing in the barrel apparently you leaves a wide spec for proper alignment of the barrel. I had one 586 l Comp sent out and it had a barrel that was sitting at about the 11:30-45 mark on a clock over screwed into the barrel. I sent that one back in a change for a different one. Receiving the second 586 the barrel is still not 100% in line with the frame but it is pretty close and seems to shoot just fine. I may still try to have S&W see if they can fix this thorough I%u2019ve heard there is not much they do with this issue.

As for the function of the 586 l Comp, it is a dream to shoot, the compensator truly does help to tame some of the hotter 357 magnum rounds, the trigger feels very nice and crisp, I love the wood grips on the gun but switch to the included hogue grips since I will be carrying the daily. Also it fits very well IWB and is more comfortable to carry then my XDs 4.0

Overall happy I am happy with the gun, just wish barrel alignments specs were tighter. 4/5

This is my second 586 L Comp. I had to send the first one back to S&W the day I picked it up because the cylinder would lock up intermittently, and I was unable to pull the trigger. When I got it back, took it to the range and oh what a sweet shooter this revolver is. The porting really helps tame the .357 loads, and it is the most accurate short barreled revolver I have. I decided to purchase a second one, and this one went right back to S&W again not only for the same problem, but also because the bluing on the revolver was uneven and actually coming off. S&W lack of quality control is inexcusable, especially on this PC line. I can\'t believe these revolvers made it out the factory doors in the condition the were in. Buyer beware...

About the only negative I can say about this S&W is the front sight tritium vial is tiny and hard to see. Other than that the gun is a home-run. Fit and finish are really nice. The matte finish has proven robust in nearly a year of carrying this revolver. Being cut for moon clips makes reloads relatively fast. The truncated grips are really conducive to concealed carry while also offering a good grip while shooting. It would be nice if they could cram a little bit larger night sight on the gun, but other than that I really enjoy this firearm as a range gun and self defense tool.

Tl;dr love the gun wish the front sight was better. Still suggest buying

I order this revolver on a Sunday night. I had tracking Monday afternoon and the forearm delivered to my FFL and was picked up on Wednesday.

Thursday I changed the wood grips to the included rubber hogue grips and went to the range. After 200rnds of 39spl and a few cylinders of 357 I can say with confidence this is one of the most comfortable well balanced revolvers I have ever had the pleasure to shoot. The fit and finish are superb and can honestly say I will never part with this gun.

The bad would definitely be the front sight. The insert is just too small and with nothing to line up on the rear sight is almost useless at night.
