Default Gun show find 586-3 6" round butt blue matte finish

Title says it all. Buddy showed it to me Friday at NGD set up but I passed at 675. Made an offer Sat and was $40 apart he was at 640 I offered 6. Still there today so when I sold a Colt Officers model .22 for $625 I made a beeline and bought it for 640. It haunted me

What research I could find is there was a run of 2500 in 6" and 2500 in 4" around 1989. The blue matte finish looks to be flat black and I expect it will be fragile but I do like the look.

Here's a quick pic.

Great score. Those guns look awesome to me. I was lucky enough to find a 4" and a 6" 586-3 in matte finish.

I would have probably walked away thinking it was a refinish, but only because I never knew about such a beast. I guess I better study my SCSW a bit better! Congratulations on finding a really cool gun at a good price. And I really like the look too.

I have the 4 inch version.

I had no idea they were uncommon until I did the research.

Nice revolver.

586 or 686 Matte? There is a 686 Matte and those are more scarce.

The 586-4 (bright blue finish) w/ factory round butt; was, per the SCS&W 4th only made from 1995 to 96 ........ not all that popular as I recall..... most folks wanted the stainless 686.

Wonder how many were built...................... with 4" and 6" barrels in that short window? I've got one a 4",wearing Spegel Extended Boot grips in Birdseye maple.........

Default Neat Special

These were special not only for the matte finish, but for the round butt grip frame, previously not seen on the longer barreled M586 variations.



P.S., as has been noted above, Spegels do look great on them too...

It looks like a product code 103592. According to a Roy Jinks letter post here some time ago there were 1849 made beginning in 1989.

BTW the gun has S&W's old style adjustable trigger overtravel stop. (That little dohicky sticking out behind the trigger). It's kind of a pain to set, because you have to remove the sideplate to adjust the camming mechanism, but it works well when set up correctly.

S&W gunsmiths were told to remove those little trigger stop things on any revolver they worked on.

According to former S&W gunsmith and AGI instructor Ken Brooks.

That's likely because if improperly set they can hamper a correct trigger pull. Probably a good idea, as a matter of course, to to remove them from all self defense and services revolvers. For target, range, and hunting I see no reason not to use it as it was intended. Or just ignore it.

I loved 1989, a period when S&W made brief runs of many neat variations. Used to be referred to as the "Gun of the month" period. I still have my 36-6 from that period.

If it's in decent shape I don't see how you could lose.

I have one in 4". Thanks for the information. I didn't realize it was as rare as it appears to be. I can say it is an excellent shooting revolver.
