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.
