TAKE SOME ADVICE FROM THIS OL' GEEZER. DO NOT SUCCUMB TO THE LOW PRICE, AND ATTRACTIVE LOOKS, OF TARUS FIREARMS. THEY ARE JUNK ! ! ! HOW DO I KNOW ? ? ? BEEN THERE, AND DONE THAT......

IMHO, THE S&W M686+ IS THE VERY BEST .357 MAGNUM REVOLVER, IN CURRENT PRODUCTION ! ! ! THERE IS NO REASON FOR YOU TO BUY A NEW ONE.....

I SUGGEST THAT YOU PICK UP A CLEAN, USED M686, FROM A NO-DASH TO A -4 VERSION. NONE WILL HAVE THE IL, OR MIM PARTS. THE -4 VERSION IS THOUGHT TO BE THE BEST OF THE BUNCH, BY MANY.......

DEPENDING ON YOUR PURPOSE, ANY LENGTH, FROM 2 1/2", 3", OR 4" WILL DO. ANY OF THEM CAN BE CARRIED CONCEALED. ALL OF THEM ARE VERY ACCURATE. THE 4"--ESP THE M686+ MOUNTAIN GUN, IS THE MOST VERSATILE. ITS EXCELLENT FOR EDC, SD AND HD, RANGE USE AND FIELD USE. THE 7TH ROUND, MAY SOMEDAY SAVE YOUR LIFE.....

BELOW ARE PICS OF MY M686+ MG (EXTREME LEFT IN THE 3 GUN LINE UP) AND MY 2 EDC GUNS. THE 642-1 WEARS A SET OF CRIMSON TRACE, LG-405, LASER GRIPS. THEY FEATURE A MOLDED IN AIR POCKET, HIGH ON THE BACK STRAP, THAT DAMPENS RECOIL.......

THE M686+, BEGAN ITS LIFE WITH ME AS A VERY CLEAN, LIGHTLY USED, 2 1/2", NO-DASH, M686. I PURCHASED IT ON GB, FOR REASONABLE MONEY. I PURCHASED IT, IN ORDER TO TURN IT INTO A RELIABLE EDC WEAPON, FOR SD. IT HAD NOT BEEN MODIFIED, AS PER THE FACTORY RECALL (NO "M" STAMP), SO I SENT IT IN FOR THE FREE MODS. WHILE IT WAS THERE, I REQUESTED THAT THEY FIT IT WITH A 7 SHOT CYLINDER. UPON ITS RETURN, I SENT IT TO DENNY REICHARD, MASSAD AYOOB'S GUNSMITH, @ SAND BURR GUN RANCH. HE GAVE IT A "DELUXE ACTION" TREATMENT, RENDERING IT SLICKER THAN SNOTS ! ! ! THAT, AND THE 642-1, IS WHAT I BET MY LIFE ON......
