yay! posting in a 6 year old thread, Im a contributor! my 686 quickly became my favorite. Got it at a show in 2009 for 450. It was actually in a house fire earlier this year, found it in a puddle of black, ashy water in a half open drawer. took it out, rinsed it off, oiled it up, checked the barrel and shot it. Not as pretty as it once was was still my most accurate pistol. The trigger still feels great too.

Now, my 686-6 5" Pro Series replaces my gone 686-3, 6". Am very happy with it. Saw it at the gun show, and had to have it! Still have my 3" 586 no dash. Bob

You have to love a 13-year-old resurrected thread........so, no real comments, all great guns, enjoy the pictures.....

686+ 3" - 8 - it's way past -3



686+ 2.5" -5 I believe - I haven't dug it out of the safe in a very long time.



686+ 4" -6
