    i`m looking for a used 586/686 or King Cobra and maybe a K frame, I have not had revolvers for decades and have renewed my interest.

    So my question is where can I find a check list on what to look for when purchasing a used revolver. Is there such a place or am I on my own.

    I know theres places like gunbrokers but I would like to have the gun in my hand as long as I have some knowledge about what I`m doing. Any ideas

    The revolver should be in full lockup when checking endshake. ;)

    The sticky rcmodel linked to is great.

    Glad you posted this. I was looking at a used Smith just yesterday and was wishing I knew a little more about how to tell a good one from a worn out one. That sticky rcmodel posted is great. I'll go back and take another look now that I know what to look for.
