That is a beautiful 686 with the combat-style grips but, I just cannot get past the lock. Just do not like the look being spoiled (my opinion only) of a great revolver by a hole in the right side and recontour of the gun's frame because of the lock.

Anyway, if you are happy, congrats and enjoy a great S&W revolver. I am having trouble getting used to the round-butt frame being used on all length's of barrels too. The original 686's only came with a round-butt frame if you purchased a 2 1/2" bbl. model. It looks nice with a round-butt frame, just different. The original 686's had a square-butt frame on the 4", 6", and 8" models with the 2 1/2' model being the only one with a round-butt frame. At least as far as I know but I could be wrong.

Congrats on getting a great shooter of a .357mag gun and I am sure it will be a great gun.

I have owned a 686 for over a decade. I took it out yesterday to shoot. It is a 6 incher and it shoots like a dream. I am auto guy all the way... But that 686 is sweet. Congrats on yours, it will be a favorite for a long time to come.-- Rob

I am an auto. man but I would love a 586 with a 4" barrel. They are beautiful wheelies that shoot as good as they look and they look damn good.

If you look just above the cylinder release, you'll see the lock........wait........just so happens you can't see the lock in the pictures the OP is showing us, because the camera is angled in just the right way that you can't see it. If you look on some of the online auction sites, you'll see many photos of current Smith revolvers that are angled in just such a way. This is especially true for revolvers that are available with, or without the lock. You'll also see many more pics of the other side of the gun.....the side without the lock! Now, why do you suppose that is?????

OK, you get the idea, here......there is an effort to sell Smith revolvers by hiding the lock in the pic. There are quite a few people, like 69HEMI-R/T, who feel it just looks ugly, and won't buy one. I might buy one, IF and ONLY IF, I can't get what I want without the lock. I feel this way, not because the lock doesn't look good.......I feel this way because the lock represents a time Smith and Wesson was a "sell-out" to the gun-grabbers.......and, that's why the lock was put on there in the first place.

Now, there are plenty of people who aren't bothered by the lock at all. That's fine.......and, that's why the lock is still there!

OK......here is a pic where there isn't as much effort to hide the lock:

thanks for all the info, hogship! now is it actually possible to get a new 686 without the lock? i know this is dumb, but the lock is one of those safety/disarm the firearm locks?
