Default 586 Price Check

I just found a 4-inch 586-2 that really looks good. Price is $650. Is this a fair price for this model? there doesn't appear to be any flaws externally...no gouges or scratches, etc. other than the usual line around the cylinder.

I've got a 586-3, 6" barrel, plastic case, ANIB, on lay-a-way at the local store. $525 + $10 for background check in Oregon.

well really I would say it's 100 dollars too high. then again I bought the same gun in that same condition(assuming the mechanics are good too) for 595 two years ago. thought I paid too much. I have never regretted it though. try to talk him down to at least 575 or 600 range and you can buy early and not feel bad. but even that price I think if you really want it. and I don't say that lightly. I am beginning to feel pre-lock L-frames are just good investments, provided they are in good shape. others may disagree. also nice it has the right stocks so at least from the photo you are getting complete package. you don't show the muzzle. how does it look on that end?

one more note. although the above posters share lower prices keep in mind that (at least in my opinion) the 4 inchers are probably more desired due to the balance issue resulting from the full lug. it just feels better with the shorter barrel. I also own two L frames in 6 inch and that is the main reason they seldom get shot. my 586 is 4 inch.

I think that it is at least $100 to high,but you don't see a lot of them for sale.Check GB usually only a couple for sale at the time.

I think it is a little high but if that is what you want I wouldn't let the price stop me from getting it

I thought the price a bit high myself and that's why I asked. I put in some questions about it but haven't as yet received a response. I don't know what the muzzle, forcing cone or recoil shield may look like as no pics were provided. I did ask about lockup, end shake and cylinder gap but I probably won't get much of an answer on that.

Price seems a little high but it still is not bad. If it is in good shape, I wouldn't have any regrets if I bought it. Also, remember that they aren't making them anymore either.

I snatched up a damn fine 4" 586 off of Gunbroker about a year ago and I would never let it go.

I picked up a 6" 586 no dash about a month ago for $400, $650 seems about $200 high.

I have a 586-1 that I bought NIB in 1984, for $350. I don't know what it would bring today, but it is one that I will not sell. It shoots as good today as it did 26 years ago. It has never had a magnum round through it, only soft ball stuff for NRA bullseye shooting. I generally use Herretts target grips for bullseye. The grips in the photo are Hogues for the range.

Why buy a 357 Magnum and never shoot what was intended for it? I don't follow that line of reasoning. Now, if it were a mint 65 or 66 model I could see the point-maybe. that's sort of like buying a Chrysler Viper and never going over 60 mph.

the trigger is tuned for bullseye shooting. it is a crisp 1.75 lbs. and breaks like glass. the heavy barrel keeps the recoil down so recover and follow up shots are easy. if you shoot bullseye, you will know the value of those characteristics. since I don't hunt or do combat shooting with it, shooting magnums was just a waste of good ammo and good money. I used to reload (still have about 2000 rounds of HBWC) and tuned my load for the matches I shot. shooting the way I have all of these years, this gun should last forever. this gun has treated me quite well over the years. I have won many a match and tournament with it and that is exactly what I have used the gun for all these years. as one of my friends would say, "real men use wheel guns", while I don't necessarily subscribe to that thought, it is a catchy phrase.

I paid $350 for a 586-3 about 2 months ago. That said, I'm the biggest proponent of not letting price be the deciding factor. If you like the gun, buy it.

The local gunstore around here has a no-dash 586 here for $499.
Does not have the "M" recall stamp so it might need to go back for the hammer nose, and the firing pin bushing in the frame...

The one you are looking at is a -2, so you don't have to worry about the recall.
...I'd say that you are looking at a gun priced about $100 too high.

Ask if it comes with box & papers and offer $550.

But if you really love it, pick it up. No one ever paid too much for a nice Smith, "only too early" as they say.
