Probably my favorite revolver of all time. 7 rounds of 357 magnum and it handles them well, very accurate and fantastic trigger! Buds also has excellent service.

If I could have just one gun, this would be it. I’m not saying it’s the best for every situation, but it can perform well in most. You can shoot hot 357 loadings down to lighter 38 special loads depending on what you need. Seven rounds of capacity. Fit and finish is fantastic. For me the 3 inch barrel balances the best in my hand and delivers good ballistics. Recoil is easily manageable and shooting 38 special is almost like shooting a 22. The only downside is it is a little big and heavy for me to conceal carry comfortably. Some may be able to do it, but not me.

Fit & finish is excellent. Trigger no so good. accuracy ok. My GP 100 is way more accurate. Expensive. Gun is ok, but I expected more.

I received the revolver on time and it was in perfect new condition. No issues mechanical or aesthetic at all. The model 686 Plus-3 inch barrel is a handsome revolver, a work of art. Have only shot it once so i cannot yet speak to the functioning or accuracy. I changed the grips to bantam size Hogue grips and it looks a lot better and feels better in my hands ( I have medium size hands). The double action is a bit too heavy but the single action is perfect as it is. I will have the Wilson springs installed to lighten the DA pull. My next one will be a K frame. .

Buds process is awesome. I was informed every step of the way - from an email reminder that they had my gun in stock to order entry and shipping status.

My 686-6 arrived looking good!

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!
