Gun of the week

model-686-pcThe Gun of the Week this time around is a new variation on an older theme, the 686PC (Performance Center) revolver.

This weapon features a 2 3/4″ barrel and a seven-shot cylinder.  It is designed from the factory to accept moon clips and is chambered for the .357 magnum cartridge.

It is not a super lightweight at 34 ounces, but if you do shoot .357 rounds rather than .38s you will be glad of the modest additional weight.  The gun is 7 1/2 inches in overall length.

The weapon comes with very attractive and comfortable wood grips.  It features the excellent S&W adjustable sights.  It is built of stainless steel with a brushed finish.

The suggested retail is not quite $1,100.

For those of you who still like revolvers (I am also a defensive revolver fan) this one is worthy of your very serious consideration.

    I have a 4″ 586 (same gun, blue steel, six shot) that I shoot regularly in IDPA competition. It is an EXCELLENT weapon.

    An 8inch is a lot of gun to tote around. I own a 686 but it’s about 10 or 12 years old and it has a 21/2 inch barrel. I carry it off duty sometimes and in the right holster its not too bad to carry.

    I used to own a SS 686 that had an 8″ barrel and came with a shoulder holster. If you tried to carry it for awhile you would need to see a chiropractor to get realigned afterwards. Accurate as hell tho. I sure do miss it.
