    Well I was looking here on the local online gun buying sight and this gem just showed up , I called and was the first to call. A like new no dash 4" 586 with the box , tools and paperwork. The gentleman was selling for his friend her husband had passed away 19 years and she decided to sell this gun. What deal $750, I mean when I was like " holy cow " I really lucked into finding this beautiful blued revolver. If some might like to help out I would like the manufacture date S/N AAC56XX, thanks { The photos didn't turn out as well as liked but you get the idea }

    Very nice! I have the same no dash in nickel, likely later than yours based on sn. I bought it used (with the original grips), some 35 years ago so can’t help you with the date. I have fired it quite a bit, it is a superb shooter and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

    That's a very early (586/686) serial #!
    I can't tell you the exact date, 1981ish for sure.
    Nice find!!!

    Congrats!

    AAC shows up as 1981 in the SCSW4, although that's just an estimate for any particular gun.

    Do you guys just luck into these? I traded a Glock 43 and 200 bucks with 150 rounds of 9mm for a no dash 686 a couple of years ago that's about as well as I've done on a firearm trade. I will echo other sentiments nice revolver.

    It just dawned on me that Snake probably has Borg implants for detecting great revolvers at good prices. He covers it with that eye patch. :rofl:

    I knew it would be another trophy when I saw the thread title! Congratulations on jumping on that amazing find so quickly, I bet the next 25 calls the seller got were for that very S&W. :thumbup:

    You seriously can’t do better than that, my hat is off to you. :)

    If you ever get out to shoot it let us know how it shoots for you!

    Stay safe.

    Really nice looking M586 alright!
    Yes, a serial number starting with AAC comes back as shipped in 1981 which is almost the first year of production but the first year of the 3 letter, 4 digit serial number series. (M586 ran from 1980 to 1999)
    IMO the only thing that would make that gun better is if it were in Blue lol. (I just like them better)

    I bought a M686-2 which has a serial number starting with BAS which puts it at a 1988. The difference between the M586 and M686 is the M586 is carbon steel and comes in blue or nickel and the M686 is the stainless steel version of the M586.

    Your gun looks like it was born approx. September, 1981.
    They are beautiful and good shooting guns and the price is good too. I have a 6 inch, nickel.

    7yFNH9e.jpg I'll never part with my 686 no dash. Born on date 1983. I love the blued guns. They've always been my favorite. You got an awesome deal. I haven't seen an original blued 586 in years.
