My dad bought this 686 no dash new on Sept. 19, 1981 at was at the time the "big store" in Tucson. I have all the accessories, even his receipt, used it to teach both my sons how to shoot a handgun. I inherited it when he passed in '92. I believe I've posted it before but here's a pic with all the "stuff". I even have the Pachmyar Gripper grip and Bianchi crossdraw holster he bought for it though I only used the original targets and he was a lefty where as I'm right handed. He had it bead blasted with an action job and polished trigger performed on it Thanks to a gentleman on the Smth-Wesson forum he tracked down that it was shipped the same month my dad bought it. Not surprising as dad was kind of spontaneous when it came to his gun purchases-now I know where I got that gene . At one point I was going to retire it and only shoot the Ks but it shoots so nice I have to keep using it. Dad would be happy.
