    My 2 Latest S&W Scores

    Found the model 10 for a price I couldn't pass on, and thought I was done buying guns for a while...bought a 65-2 less than a month ago.

    Then I saw this 686-1 on a local site, and had to have it. It looks too good with my 686-1 2 1/2".

    The 4" doesn't have the M stamp. I'm going to put a few hundred rounds thru it, and if it's OK I'm not sending it in for the fix. When I sent my 2 1/2" 686 in for the M stamp they actually lost my gun for a while. I got a free box, set of grips, and a T shirt out of it thou...and of course of revolver.

    Nice guns. My favorite LGS has a nice 686 no dash that's calling me. Put some 38 spl through my newer 5" 686 today.

    I have to agree. the 686's do look nice. I've held off on buying the Smiffs because I haven't found one that really makes my heart race. Most have been over priced and in less than stellar condition. The only one I've seen in the past few years was a mint condition Lady Smith and they wanted 850 for it. 150-200 over brand new seemed stupidly overpriced for my liking. At this point, I'd be happier with a 6 shot Model 66 Taurus.

    Yeah, I agree with you in not sending your 686 in unless you have problems. I sent an early 80's 681 in a few years ago for that old recall. I never had a problem until I fired some really hot Buffalo Bore loads...that ammo may have softer primers too. What ever the reason, it acted up in a manner consistent with the issue, so I sent it in since it was Australian surplus and didn't have the "M."

    Guess what? They lost my gun, too, for a while. And when I got it back, guess what? I still had issues with the hot Buffalo Bore loads. That recall was started 30 years ago and I personally believe S&W no longer has people qualified or experienced enough to make the repair. Not a huge deal, I just avoided that ammo, and almost all other ammo I bought was fine. Sold the gun, anyway.

    Despite all that, I love your two vintage S&W revolvers! That is my favorite category of gun! I have many. Congrats.

    I've got a "few" Smith's and everyone of them except the model 10 is in more than stellar condition. The model 10 is in perfect mechanical shape, just has some honest holster wear on the bluing.

    Never owned a Taurus 66, but the S&W 66's I own are probably my favorite Smith's of all.
