very NICE 586!! I really prefer blued guns myself. I bought stainless steel because it was the craze back in the 90's...

Sharp gun. I really like the looks of a 686...20+ years ago, I carried around a large glossy S&W catalog and a large glossy catalog from another maker. I spend several months trying to decide between the 686 and the other makers similar gun...The other maker won due to their bright polished finish they offered.

No, I didn't even consider a Python back then. I wanted "tough" and the King Cobra had the reputation of being nearly bullet proof. I also didn't consider blue, either. I intended to carry the gun in all weather conditions and didn't want to worry of rust. I bought a bright polished stainless model.

Very nice L-frame, here's my L-frame 686-7 alongside of a K-frame M-66, IMO the 686 has the perfect barrel length(3")for the best combination of portability and accuracy....
