Living in Vermont "at the end of the dirt road" as it were you would think you just wouldn't see too much fun stuff. However, the FFL has had a VEPR, two DW pre-CZ Razorbacks from the first 150 and I was lucky enough to find a 686-CS1 3" for $365. You just never know. I need to go in there nearly everyday I just don't have the money.

However, the gun goddess was smiling today. They had just taken it in. It could have been cheaper, $535 OTD but this is what I found. It needed some TLC and I did a brief wipe up and cleaned off a little crud but here she is.

It has a dovetailed tritium front night sight, came with the Pachmayr grips which I think are original although SCSW mentions Uncle Mike's rubber Boot Grips. It has a counterbored six-shot fluted cylinder and distributed by Lew Horton introduced in 1993. There were approximately 300 made. No lock, hammer mounted firing pin and in great condition.

Very nice find. The Spec Ord code seems to indicate August 30, 1996.

I think it will keep the 686-CS1 good company!

Thanks for the input and the date information. I was wondering about that since they were introduced in 1993 according to SCSW. I'm very pleased with it.

Gress, did you change out the front sight or did she come that way? Is that the model code with FC at the end?

I had an opportunity to fondle and buy one of the M19 versions a few years ago. My preference was/is for SS Smith's so I unfortunately passed on it. I now wish I hadn't. Those are both very nice guns and I would love to find either of them now.

You kidding me on the price? I think that was a great buy. Not too high at all. For a compensated, performance center, limited edtion? Oh yes, you did very well. You will like it. That comp makes it very pleasant to shoot. Congratulations man.
