    Anyone got an estimate for an ANIB/lightly used 646 .40 without an internal lock?

    Is it from the first run with the slab-sided barrel and half-lug, or the second run with the barrel and lug like a 686?

    It's the second series, basically a .40 686.

    $350 would be a good price for me but they tend to go around $450 to $600plus

    These revolvers are quite rare, so I expect the prices will begin to go up on them in the upcoming years.

    Only 400 of the Performance Center revolvers were made. Then, a single run of 700 standard line S&W Model 646 revolvers were made. They looked like 686s.

    So . . . there are only 1,100 on the planet! All are "L" frame revolvers, and they are very, very accurate.

    Here's my Performance Center version, with original grips:

    For what it's worth, lots of people who used the first version in competitions had problems with them. I haven't heard of anyone with any problems with the second version, for whatever reason.

    I would expect to pay $500-550.00 for a NIB one. Less than that would be great. Mine is the only .40 I've ever liked.:cool:
