    my 16 year old S&W Model 686 357mag. This is back when Smith put an A+ polished finish on their SS revolvers. Also, no stupid key lock and sub-standard finish. Grips are original S&W Goncalo Alves (no longer made, protected wood) combat grips. Show me yours and let's see if it's nicer!!

    I wouldn't brag about that old, over-the-hill 686. I think the blue job stinks. :evil: :D

    Slugo, I've liked that gun since it was called the Distinguished Combat Magnum. I have one myself, a Performance Center gun with a Black T finish and tuned action. That's it in the lower right hand corner.

    Clean, 'cause you don't ever shoot it????:neener: Loved that old Goncalo Alves wood. I've only got one gun that's worth lookin' at. They're all working guns.

    Slugo,

    Nice 686! Mine is one of the newer ones with the wart (doesn't bother me too much, but I prefer it not be there). I cleaned up the finish myself and it looks pretty good, but not as nice as yours.

    But how are these? Just as nice? :)

    Nice 686 but nothing is nicer looking than a rich blue revolver like this pre-80s model 29...well, maybe a nice blue third generation Colt Detective Special or a 2 1/2 inch model 19....

    Serpico, TWINS!!

    Actually I understand this to be a '59, so maybe an older brother?

    Since Smith & Wesson didn't make this 3" L-Frame in blued steel...

    I'll say the stainless 696 in .44 Special gets the good-looking tag in my revolver collection. No wart, firing pin's on the hammer where it belongs, no MIM, and the walnut grips are by Altamont:

    I think somebody buffed it up, but I'm not sure; I bought it used.

    Makes it look like a high polish nickel. I used to have an S&W 586 with a finish like that.

    Well it does have the spiderhole and the JM billboard is a bit of a detractor too, but I humbly submit this.

    Not quite as cool as the original post, but the best I can do personally.

    Nah! You can do better than that! :neener: ;) Actually, that's an awesome revolver. I have a few of the new ones too. Would rather they had hammer mounted firing pins, no key holes in the frames and forged steel hammers and triggers, but they look just fine and shoot just fine the way they are. I'm a sucker for a classic Smith & Wesson, though.

    I dont know if this Taurus 66 qualifies but its a basic workhorse with a good sturdy frame.

    Any S&W Six shooter made after 1975 is, well just another high production factory gun. Poor finish, poor fit, may as well buy a Dan Wesson or a Ruger
    or Rossi .:cuss:
