Just came in today and I couldn't be more happier with her. The trigger is just phenomenal to be quite honest. Between 2 1/4 & 2 1/2 pounds single action and breaks like a glass rod of course. Overall, a very nice ole Smith imo
Thanx for letting me share gang. Here's s few pics

I’ve got an 8 3/8” 586 and you are right about the trigger. Probably the best I’ve ever had the pleasure to shoot. DA is right at a very smooth 8.5 lbs and my SA pull is 2.5 lbs. The best! The bluing looks like it will drip right off...
You’re gonna love it!!!

OP,
install some Hogue rubber grips on your 586.
The Target grips are fetching good money these days.

Ceapea,
I would NOT part w/ my 8-3/8"Bbl 586 for love or any amount of money.

Working stock pic of a few of my S&W's.

Will do.
Mine came with the factory wood stocks as well as a set of Hogue rubber grips. It was used, but I couldn’t find any proof that it had been shot. It really was in fantastic shape. Still is.
I only use the factory wood on the 586. Seems the only way to go with such a gun. The Hogues go on the stainless guns...

I agree 100%
The wood looks so perfect on the 586!
My 629 PC has black rubber and they look best on it

Ah, great minds think alike! I’ve got a 4” 629-1 with Hogues on it. It originally came with the fancy, finger groove/cut, cocobolo grips. Still have them, but being a lefty (handed, that is), they never fit just right. In the right hand, they felt like magic. No so much in the left. So, Hogues for it...
I’ll get some pics of it, too.

OK ... now you guys are talkin' my language. Nice pick up on your 586. I had to dig into my pic files to find these.

My 586 (no dash), 8" … with 2X Burris Target Scope. This was my NRA Silhouette gun and deer gun back in the 80's. The group shown was at 75 yrds from sandbags, using my "deer load". It still shoots great and finds it's to the range now and then.

Enjoy your new 586 … a sweet addition to any collection.

I know you will like the 586 but also know you are going to love the 27-2. The closes thing I have to your beautiful 586 is a 686-1. It is a fine revolver but does not compare to my early, vintage 1950, Pre-Model 27 with a 3 & 1/2" barrel. I also like my two Model 27-2's with 8 & 3/8" barrel.

In my assortment of Smiths, the only thing that out does the Model 27 and it predecessor, Registered Magnum, the follow-un-registered prewar Magnum, and the Pre-Model 27 is the WWI era .44 hand Ejector 1st Model (a.k.a.New Century Triple Lock.

I have two of the Triple Locks, one in original factory nickle plating and one in blued

I just hit the S&W jackpot! Haha
Man, you have the ultimate collection imo.
Seriously, I would love to see some pics if you have the time.
And, yes, I am chompin at the bit to get that 27-2 in my hands
It's absolutely immaculate.
But, all the same, I am just terribly impressed with this 586. Especially the trigger.
