Look what followed me home!

New S&W 686 Plus! I'm not really a wheel gun guy but I fondled this one at my LGS & I just couldn't give it back to them. The trigger is crisp & predictable & in SA, compares favorably to my Kimber Pro CDP. Took some photos but haven't uploaded them yet. Looks exactly like this one: Image

I own both the S&W686 (6 shot) and Colt python. In my opinion the 686 is a better gun. You got yourself a nice gun, the nicest .357 on the market. Now I'll wait for the hate mail from the Colt fans. I am a Colt fan, but in this instance, the S&W wins out.

S&W always wins out IMO. I have a no dash 686. Thought of selling it a few times but then I come to my senses!
While Colt made some nice wheelies, they where very complicated internally and more likely to go "out of time" than a Smith.
The later Colts like the Trooper MKIII and family where NO match for a Smith!
Rugers may be considered more robust but they seem way less than refined compare to a Smith as well.
Simply for me, make my revolver an S&W.....preferably an older one!

I'm fonder of the K-frames than the L-frames, but the difference is pretty small. I never thought I'd be such a revolver collector when I started shooting six years ago.

I picked up a police trade-in S&W M19 with a 4" barrel several years ago. It was one that was carried a lot and shot very little. Still tight and smooth as glass. Rugers are very robust but I made a pretty good bit of money in Va smoothing out the internals and giving them, (mostly SP-101's) a usable trigger. Unless things have changed, it looked like Ruger finished their guns inside with a rasp.
