    Given me an idea - any of you there recommend me a nice set of grips for my Ruger Old Army? I'm about cheesed off with the current Pachmayrs, and fancy something a little more, uh, traditional, so to speak. NOT stag, though.

    This was me shooting the last shot in a 'last-man-standing competition' any revolver shoot a few years syne. Eight start out shooting at 25m, and as their shots go outside the 6 ring, so does the shooter. I'm the only one left 'standing', and all my twenty-four shots were inside the eight ring, for a total score 216.



    Half were fired left-hand and half right-hand - same for all shooters. No two-hand grip allowed. The load was 30gr of T7 under a .457" cast ball.

    A couple of Smith Highway Patrolmen - one of the few things worth preserving from the 70s. A 6" 1977 Python that was given to me by a retired Sgt. A Dan Wesson 15-2VH6.

    This is my pre-B-P Model 29 - now owned by a good friend in PDX -
    upload_2018-8-10_9-42-7.png

    All the others are either de-acted or made into manhole covers...except for the abortion of a Ruger Super Redhawk I have had since 2002, which I am ashamed to show here again.

    And you all know what a Ruger Old Army looks like.

    I've owned several wheel guns in the past. A few Old Model Rugers, one a Blackhawk 6 1/2" in 41 Mag (1967) and a matching 351 (1967, too), plus a 1972 vintage Super Blackhawk in 44 Mag. A couple of New models, 4 5/8" Anniversary flattop 357 and a 4 5/8" 41 Mag. Even the Blackhawk SRM 357 Maximum 10 1/2"! Smith and Wesson has put a few thru my mitts, a 65 4", a 60, a 649 2 1/8" in 357, a 686+ 4" and a 500 5". The 649 and and 686+ are a couple I wish I'd never let go. I even had a Colt Police Positive 5" that was sweet.
    I might have a few pics of these, but they are all long gone My wife still has a 642 Airweight Ladysmith with Crimson Trace grips (factory).
    Last fall I had been poking around looking for another 686+ 4" and found this thing in the gun case at Fisherman's. I returned a few days later and brought it home. While we didn't get along too well at the beginning, this has turned into one of the best guns I've ever purchased. (It's in good company with my Dan Wesson CBOB, but that's for a different thread)

    Model 69 S&W. Some may show disdain because of the lock hole, but there is no other way to get this much power in this small of a package. When full of 44 Specials my wife shoots it better than any other handgun she's ever pulled the trigger on. In another thread I'd commented that I'd probably trade it straight across for another 686+ like I used to have, but that's completely off of the table now.

    Smith & Wesson Model 586-4 .357 Magnum revolver. Born sometime between 1994 which was the start of the -4 changes and 1997 which marked the end of the -4 changes.

    All my smoke-wagons. Single actions are all 45 Colt, the Blackhawk has a 45 ACP cylinder as well. Double-actions are all 357 except the wee 5-shooter being a 38.

    If you want a more complete shipping date for your Model 586-4 all you need to do is call the 800 number on the Smith and Wesson website and give them the serial number. They will give you the month and year your gun left the Factory.

    Thank you... That one is 4”, so it could be eligible for EDC, should the need arise...

    This is a 3” S&W Performance Center 586 L Comp, 7 rounds of delightful .357 Magnum power. Shown with the factory Altamont grips.

    Here's a 629 and 686. Both excellent shooters, but the irony is I seldom shoot either one of them as I just seem to always grab the Rugers.:cool:

    Like me some 686 as well, here’s a 686+ Deluxe, 3” barrel, just as it came from the factory. Nicely balanced and suitable for EDC...

    This has to be a sweet gun. It sure is gorgeous. The 686+ I had was a -5 and except for the composition of the metal it was made from it was very similar to your 586. To me it's the perfect 357.
