    I have a 10-8 heavy barrel. Put some VZ grips on it, and OMG. Best S&W grips I've ever held. Excellent all-around reliable ignore-it-til-you-need it weapon. Bobbed the hammer so it's DAO and made myself learn to shoot that way. Very accurate piece.

    Thanks, it's a 4" S&W 686-3. Very nice shooter.

    Thanks! I'm looking at picking up a revolver. Been doing my due diligence. I really like that one.

    Nice collection. I used to love my old model 19, and I understand the L frames are an improvement. :)

    ....that's pretty !! What "dash number" is it a -3 or -4 would be a guess.

    ...... yes my -3 was new in 1989. I think my -4 is about 91. They are my favourite generations of the L Frame.

    Don't disagree. If I had to choose I'd give the edge to the -4s just for being drilled and tapped from the factory. Could be easier to find a rear sight leaf these days too. Either way, they're great guns
