Default 686 PC - Is this right?

Hey all. Does this look correct - looks really sloppy for a PC gun? Looking for input as this is my first revolver. S&W 686 Performance Center Issues - Album on Imgur

I started another thread on some issues with my 686 PC and now I have some concerns about other areas of the gun.

686 Performance Center 4 Canted Barrel

I musta put at least a couple thousand rounds thru my 4" 686 and the muzzle crown is a sharp edged work of art compared to the muzzle of the PC 686 in the pics.

May be the source of your woes, having looked at the photos. But not my first choice. Nor even my third. I've found most accuracy problems start rather further back.
