Default S&W 686 6'' Eurotarget - 1 of 500.

Hi there, and greetings from Denmark!

I have just ordered this S&W revolver (1st. picture), a 686 6'' Eurotarget , apparently a 1 out of 500 from S&W performance center.

Does anyone in here know anything about the Eurotarget model?

Bought it because i want a ''real'' target shoothing revolver... and because it's a beautiful revolver! The 1 of 500 is just a ''fun fact''

Also! Does anyone know what the ''AKAH'' letters on the side stands for?

I already have a 586-4 4'' revolver (2nd. picture), it is fun as hell, but imo not the perfect choice for competition/target use. It has a Karl Nill grip fitted, which i will put on the 686 instead.

Kind Regards - Rasmus

According to the source that I read, "AKAH" stands for Albrecht Kind GmBH. Your revolver, according to the source, was assembled by AKAH from selected parts provided by S&W and met the same characteristics as S&W Performance Center products.

I feel confident that someone else on this forum will have more information and knowledge regarding your wonderful example.

Yeah, all the high end fun toys go to Europe. Can't get that kind of stuff here. You will love it for target shooting. I have 9 6" 686es in different configurations for shooting matches. They are the best.

Welcome from the Pine Barrens of Southern New Jersey!

Rasmus, we actually don't see that version of the 686 here. The smooth cylinder is sometimes seen on 7 shot TALO guns, and on some specialty models. Sorry that I can't be more helpful.

Your gun is a dead ringer for the 686-3 Classic Hunter, a 1 of 5,000 edition, except for the Combat stocks. As it has the old-style forged cylinder release, hammer and trigger, I'd be interested in knowing what if any dash number follows the model number on the frame.
