My wife gave me an early Christmas present. She treats me way better than I deserve.
S&W used to sell titanium cylinders through their parts department, but ceased doing so several years ago. This one came from a seller on eBay that had a spare NOS cylinder left over from a 386 that he previously owned.Wow! That's the first titanium cylinder I've seen. Great looking grips.
Nothing wrong with Altamont grips. They are nicely fit and finished even though they are laminate. I've owned a few sets of their targets with medallions installed, but just didn't care for the square profile of the grip horns and backstrap.I have been looking at the Ahrends and the Altamont grips. Have not looked at VZ grips for a revolver. I like the idea of conversion grips. Thanks for the info.
They are indeed a very robust revolver. The added weight of the full underlug, and L Frame, makes for an extremely capable wheel gun! Lets just say they soak up a good deal of recoil when pushing full house magnums down range.I’ve always been a big fan to the 686 but have never owned one.
I have a customer with a 6” 686 from the early 80’s that’s in the original box and maybe been shot a couple times. I’ve been trying to work a deal for awhile. Maybe Christmas will be kind to me as well.
