Default 626 revolver

Hello to all,

My first post. What makes me the most happy, is to be called a "rookie" at 73!

I am looking for this gun. Any help would be appreciated.

Longboat Key, FL. That sounds relaxing. I chose 'Vegas, baby.' I can't relax!

I checked SCSW (Standard Catalog of S&W by Jim Supica, our 'bible' of sorts). He does not report a Model 626. There WAS a Model 26, a large N-frame .45ACP revolver. There is a Model 686, a stainless steel, adjustable sight, .357 Magnum caliber, L-frame revolver, which has existed since about 1980. Perhaps you mean this model. The initial '6' on a 3-digit model number indicates stainless steel construction.

SCSW has tons of interesting info on all makes of S&W firearms, as do many folks on this forum. Feel free to ask.

P.S. You can also Google many different model numbers to obtain specifics on various S&W models.

TrustVerify, as we get to a certain stage in life, we get so our eyes don't work as well and our fingers miss a feeeeeew keys, etc. It seeeeeeems to be happening to me as weeeeeeeell, but I just live with it and am glad I still have my guns & computer! If I were hanging out in the Keys as well, it just could't get any better than that! Welcome aboard from another old Ronald Reagan fan.
