I've wanted one for awhile. Found one a great shape. Very tempting... :)

They look great with that frame in a blued finish. Never seen a nickel one up close, but if I ever do and it's at a reasonable price it's coming home with me.

Good bore + good lockup = no reason not to buy.

I bought mine in 1981. 6" 586. It is still the most accurate magnum revolver I've every fired. The only thing that ever did better for me was a friend's S&W Model 14. But the 586, with magnum loads, was pretty close to the target revolver with wadcutters out to 25 yds.

You won't be sorry.

Joe,
You will never be disappointed by that revolver. If the price is anywhere near reasonable, jump on it. Good magnum revolvers are an affliction, similar to 1911-itis. Over the years, I've managed to acquire two .357 mags (Models 19 and 686), a .41 mag (Model 657) and a .44mag (Model 29 "Dirty Harry" version). Never regretted getting any one of them.

If I don't win this one, then one day I'll get an older one.

While it's still a sweet looking pistol, I think you need to go after an earlier one with the better bluing.
New ones aren't bad, IMO. I do however hate the Hillary holes.

Since the 3 guys I asked about it are here, I did end up with that magnaported 29.
Sent the payment Tuesday, he is shipping it Friday, I'll have it next week.
My second S&W revolver, my first prelock.

Gonna hit the range with my daughter and try it out.
Going to get a video of her shooting the 686 in 357mag and the 29 in 44mag..
I'll either keep it, or sell it and get an unported 29 or 629.

Right now, I'm thinking I might just like it............:cool:


As to your 586 joe, just buy it already....:mrgreen:
Is there room in one of the safes................:confused:

29's are fabulous.

I need to remember to send mine in for a tuneup so I can shoot it again. It hasn't seen hardly any special in its near 30 years of life.
