I own a 686-0 with the 8-3/8'' barrel. It is incredibly accurate even with iron sights and my tired old eyes. My best groups run about 2'' at 20 yards with either .38 or .357. 30 rounds and a bench rest. It is a keeper.

I have always like the S&W K & L framed guns also like the Ruger Security Six & GP100's as well my current collection is a S&W Model 66 no dash & a Ruger GP100 WC. Both very accurate especially my GP100. To the OP very nice 686 there seems to me you have been on quite the revolver/pistol frenzy this year!!! Oops Gun Nut Itus its very easy to come down with this sickness!!!

As much as I want to not like a S&W, I do have to say that that is a damn fine looking gun.

Now I have to go out and buy another Ruger to expunge that thinking from my noggin That Super Blackhawk in .480 has been haunting me...

I've admired that particular model for some time. I like the edgy styling - the slab sided barrel, squared off muzzle, angled underlug and the window for the ejector rod. I know it's not very traditional and not everyone likes it but I do and I appreciate that S&W is willing to let their designers explore a different take on revolver styling while still sticking to the mechanics of the platform.

That particular model was the inspiration for this GP100 I did a couple of years ago.



I pretty much ripped off that S&W 686 SSR plus a little from Gemini. But imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right?

S&W 686

That is a nice looking gun. The first handgun I ever owned was a Stainless Model 66 with a 6 inch barrel. I sold it when when we had our first kid because I needed the money and did not want to spring for a safe to keep it in.
I always kick myself for letting it go.
