    I picked up my 686 on Friday and I love it.
    My first personal revolver, my first stainless gun an I am love.
    The rubber grips of which I was never a fan are AWESOME. The gun and grip combo are wonderful together giving a super hand fit.
    Both single and double action trigger s wonderful. Very smooth and very crisp.

    Shot on Saturday. Sights are dead on. Even I put rounds side by side. and that while shooting bulk ammo 38 specials.

    The gun carries well and handles very well.

    We now have 2 smiths, mine and my wife's, in the family. I am eagerly looking forward to my next S&W revolver.

    I've got a S&W .44 Special Revolver and it is a very nice gun, accurate and a good trigger. I'd buy another but I think I need a Super Redhawk first. ;)

    I love S&W revolvers, they are even better with some Wolff springs. :)

    The L frame Smith is a nice revolver. If you have the opportunity try a S&W M27 some time.

    What length barrel?

    I've got a 686 w/ 4" barrel. It's just a great gun to shoot. I'm not fond of the rubber grips, but haven't found anything else I want to replace them with (yet). Maybe a set of nice Ahrends someday.
