They really are exceptional.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!!!
Will do.They really are exceptional.
Would love to see a pic if get time.
I agree 100%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...
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 agree 100%
The wood looks so perfect on the 586!
My 629 PC has black rubber and they look best on it
Wow. Very nice!!!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 just hit the S&W jackpot! HahaI 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
