Default 686 picture thread

Since there seems to be a lot of love for the 686 I thought it would be great to have a thread that is dedicated to them. So share pictures of yours here.

My 686 (no dash), is by far my favorite handgun.





If there is another thread for this, the mods can delete this one. I tried the search, but did not see one.

I have seven, but the photo limit is five. In order, they are a 4" -4, a 6" no-dash, a 6" unfluted -3, a 6" PowerPort -3 and a second 6" no-dash with a Millet rear sight. I also have a 6" PowerPort -5 and a 6" -3.

I really like 686s but for informal target shooting, I prefer my 66s

My 686P-6 - Although it has the dreaded IL, it's still a nice gun.

I bought this 686 no dash in 1982, my first brand new S&W revolver. My Dad made this custom presentation box for it and gave it to me for Christmas that year.

686-1 6" No Lock.

Do any of you find the 6" barrel-heavy? Mine is kind of new to me and sometimes I wish I'd found a 4" no lock...

Of course I don't feel that way when I'm hitting good patterns at 75'...

I'm glad I get to post the first 686-6 Plus Pro Series with a 5" bbl on here! So far I love this gun, after some calibration it's shooting like a champ. Doesnt hurt that its factory cut for moon clips either. I don't mind the Hogue monogrip, it fits nicely and seems practical, but i might get some wood grips soon for looks .

Default I'll Play

In September of 1992 I had a birthday coming up and saw an add in the Tampa Tribune for this weapon. Met the seller at a convienance store just outside of Imperial Lakes in Lakeland FL. He wanted $285.00 I offered $250.00 and the weapon was mine. He scratched out a receipt on a scrap of paper and took my name and address with a promise to mail the box etc...asap. Good to his word, I got all the goodies a couple of weeks later. I still have a copy of the ad, receipt, box and goodies and of course my 686-3.
Because I have two hands, this one is definately one of the last two guns to go.
BTW the seller's first name was Alan. If you happen to recognize yourself in my story, reach out, it would be interesting to hear from you.

I heard a rumor a couple years ago that S&W was going to offer a 686-Plus in a three-inch version. Rumor or not, I ordered one right then and there. It took six months to get it, but it was worth it.

Default Can anyone say if the trigger and hammer look "normal"?

Do the trigger and hammer colorations indicate a problem?

This one started off as one of the "Stocking Dealer Exclusive" Hi Viz / V notch guns. I bought it to shoot steel and ICORE, so I had it cut for moons, put a 7 pound DA trigger on it and went shooting. The Hi Viz and V notch were very fast on the close targets, but I could never get used to them for precise alignment and they cost me a lot of points as distance increased. The second season I swapped them out for a square notch rear and an SDM Super Sight front and that's how she sits today.

No. I'm pretty sure you have a 686-4 (open the cylinder and look at the frame for markings indicating the "dash" designation). As such, it would have been standard with case hardened hammer/trigger as opposed to the earlier versions flash chromed controls.

Unless (and it's hard to tell in the pics you posted) those colorations are rust or corrossion of some type, the pic shows a normal made 686-4 (no pinned sight, round butt, case hardened hamm/trigger).

Hope this helps.

On second thought/look. Yes, there is a serious problem with your gun. I think, to keep you and those around you safe, you should let me offer you (and I'll be generous as I need the "parts") oh...let's say...$100 to take it off your hands. That would have to include shipping of course.

Default 686 Plus Profile Barrel

This 6" PC revolver (short run of 170 for Lew Horton, 1998) came to me wearing a set of very nice but incorrect Nill grips. I contacted Altamont, and they made me a replacement set of grips as originally supplied by the factory. This is the result. Jim

My first S&W Post so what the heck. A 686-5 (unfortunately with the "Hillary Hole"). Though I do love how well she shoots.

Wow so many awesome 686's. It's definitely easy to see why they're so popular.

This one returned home to me yesterday NEVER to leave again. I foolishly traded it to a friend awhile back and he graciously traded me back. As many guns as I've sold or traded away, I regretted this trade the most. It's 686-3 with matching box and paperwork.

Nice -3 mate, it is a close cousin to mine. What serial number prefix does it have (just out of interest). My two at BDT (the 4) and BPH (the 6).

BJC is the prefix. I think it's from '93-'94 maybe.

My BPH is suppose to date from 93, the BDT is 89 I believe.

Classic Hunter, circa 1988, Product Code 104249

The Hogue grip shown is actually not the original, which was soft rubber. The one here is an earlier hard nylon type. Also, for whatever reason this gun came with a plain rear sight rather than the white outline it supposedly should've had.

To my knowledge, the 104249s had the exact sight package your gun has. I have two of them and they're twins to yours. Also, checkered Goncalo Alves target stocks were original equipment on them - both my guns' box labels list them.

Very interesting. I bought mine new, and it definitely came with the soft Hogue Monogrip, and SCSW describes this variation as coming with that as well, notwithstanding that my box also has the code "TS" for grip. I saw a second one of these NIB a couple years ago (which I let pass by like an idiot) and it had the soft Hogue Monogrip, too. However, I was actually considering fitting up some nice Goncalo Alves target stocks to this gun, and you may have just pushed me over the edge on that.
