Lnib s&w 586 pics

Just picked up my 586 no dash 4" today. I purchased this from a S & W forum member who answered my WTB post. It is in excellent condition and according to the previous owner probably never shot. He stated that he had not shot it but was not the orginal owner. It doesn't have a cylinder turn line that I can see and the recoil shield looks pristine as well. The serial number is ABE094X which would I think make a 1982 model. Like buying a new gun. Now the big question is should I shoot it? As nice as it is would you? Weigh in with your opinions.

Very nice indeed

I love the 586/686 Smith revolvers.

Its a beautiful example. You've got the box and everything.

Congrats!

I've got a like new 686-1. I believe they were introduced a year before the 586 back in the late 70's/early 80's.

Same gun, different material. I actually prefer blued carbon steel for revolvers, but I do love the 686.

Since you have the box, if it hasn't been shot, I probably wouldn't shoot it.

That said, I'm forunate enough to own many guns and can afford not to shoot them if I don't want to. You have to weigh it out.

My 686 above had already been shot and I've shot it a lot more.

You know I also have plenty of revolvers to shoot including a 4" Python, so I will weigh that thought also.

I figured that by your avatar. In that case, I probably wouldn't shoot it.

I just *hate* it when I start experiencing S&W lust... and the 586/686 line just really do it to me!

Thanks for sharing...

I say - SHOOT IT!

Otherwise you don't know if it really works...

Enjoy!

Me too

I think they were some of the best looking, best shooting revolvers built. They have great balance.

I would consider it a crime against all fellow shooters NOT to fire that gun. It's a LIFER Load, Inspect, Fire , Enjoy, Repeat.

M686

Solved the dilemma today. Bought a Model 686 shooter and will put the Model 586 in the safe at least for a while. The 686 is from the same time period early 83 with 4" barrel. Comes with pachs on it but has the target grips included and the box and papers. Now I can sling some lead and not worry about messing up the safe queen!

It's amazing how many of life's dilemmas can be solved by buying another gun.

You'd be so lucky! I'm so jealous!


That's the way S&W wheel guns should be! Beautiful blued steel, hammer mounted firing pin, no mim parts, and no stupid hillary hole!

They need to bring these back.


Sadly, that will never happen.

You know I am sure the new guns are great and look good, but I just can not stand that hole in the side of a fine firearm. Can not get past that.

S&W revolvers, especially the older ones like this really give me a special feeling.
