Default 586 RB 3"

Does anyone know if S&W produced the 586, in a 3", other than the current production L-Comps? I seem to recall seeing a 2.5" once... but only once.

Default Sure did

The M586 in 3" was made in very limited numbers.
Here's the one I have, wearing Spegel grips and a replacement front sight, it came with a ramped sight blade, now wearing a Patridge.




Enjoy...

That is some nice eye-candy.

I consider the “L” frame Smith THE platform for the .357 cartridge. I have both a 4” Model CS-1 and a 6” 686.

Flat out LOVE them.

Had one in the 90s..... looking back foolishly traded it away. But I got a anib Performance Center Shorty-9 for it.

Less than 4" I prefer a K-frame.... lucky to have some 3" 65s and 66s.

Very cool revolver. I really like the Patridge sight over the ramp. Snubbies aren't my thing, but that's a real beauty. Enjoy it.

Portion of letter about the 3" produced 586's. They are sweet and not often seen.
Good luck finding one!

Would love to have a short barrel. I do have a 4" and love it.

Why will they not make revolvers JUST LIKE THAT any longer? Those are beautiful, just beautiful. Easily the nicest S&Ws I've seen today. Congrats to all who own them.

I wish Smith & Wesson had made the fixed sight 581 in a 2-1/2" or 3" barrel version with a round butt. I would have bought at least one of each! To me, that would have been the quintessential recoil-absorbing concealable .357 Magnum revolver.

As I recall, there was also a previous 3" L-Comp 586 version.

I had my gunsmith cut a 6" to 3" and install a Weigand ramp. Its probably my favorite revolver.
