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.
