I just picked up a used 686 in perfect condition at a gun show this morning only to be confused by some post when I went to look on line for the instruction manual.
On the left side of the frame it has the serial # and then below that is m686-1.
Does this mean that it was already modified so I don't need to send it back to S&W for the recall? Someone told me that I do need to send it back because the "M" needs to be in the space between the serial # and model #.
Thanks for your help.
