I want a Smith & Wesson 686, and that's all there is to it! The quality of any S&W revolver has been unmatched for decades. I can honestly say that I have never owned a revolver in my life. I started this year off on a mission to fill a case with a shotgun, rifle, revolver and semi-auto. To date I have purchased a Mossberg 500 Road Blocker and a Kel Tec PLR-16.
Yes, the Kel Tec is considered a pistol that shoots the 5.56 NATO round, but it will suffice as my rifle. This coming March I'll be ready for my next purchase, and the first revolver that came mind was the . For the record, I am was in the market for a concealed revolver, so the barrel length of my choice could not exceed 3 inches.
The 686 is based on the L frame which for S&W is apart of their medium/large size guns. Smith's website says it weighs 39.7 oz empty and features an adjustable rear sight with a red ramp front sight. Really the selling point is it's brand. You really can't go wrong with a Smith & Wesson. In my opinion it is the best revolver ever made. If you know your gun history, Smith & Wesson were the men who played a major roll in the development of revolvers, especially high powered revolvers.
D.B. Wesson was one of the 3 men who actually came up with the . I only had two dilemmas. There price was not within my budget, and it was somewhat difficult to find the 3 inch model I was interested in.
Currently the 686 model has been selling between $750 - $850. Even though I was absolutely positive that I would receive the most bang for my buck, I just couldn't afford the price tag. So my search had to continue... There was one option that sparked my interest. The was the only revolver that would fit the bill. I've always had a love for the brand. My first firearm purchase was a Ruger P89 in 9mm. Little did I know, the GP model has been around since 1985 and already had one of the best reputations as a high powered revolver.
What sold me was the price. I went directly to budsgunshop where I make all of my online purchases. They have them in stock for the price of . The gun is one of the top 3 revolvers in it's class, and I'm sure plenty of collectors already have one in their arsenal.
As with any firearm from Ruger, the GP-100 comes with lots of features. It has a very easy disassembly system, that allows anyone to break the gun down without the use of tools. The cylinder is secured by 3 locks, and the gun comes with hogue grips for those hot .357 rounds. The gun weighs 37.00 oz and is considered in gunversations as a tank of a handgun. I'd have to say that yes it is beefy...but who wouldn't want to be sure their gun could handle the .357 rounds it's chambered for?
My GP is now on layaway at buds. It'll be sure to post plenty of pictures once it arrives. Gunversation is a brand dedicated to the increased knowledge of gun awareness.

best dating s & w revolver ever made - 7 Classic Revolvers You've Got To Have
Can ya'll tell I can't sleep and I'm bored? Nothing like staying up all night playing with guns. Just for fun, since I posted what I thought was the worst revolver ever made, I figured I'd post a pic of one my personal favorites - The Colt Python.
I don't really know if its the best ever made but its gotta be pretty close. I know the Smith & Wesson and Ruger fans out there will voice their favorites, too. I honestly couldn't tell you how accurate or reliable this Python actually is because its never been fired (other than factory test).
But I do love the looks of it. My other all time favorite is the S&W Model 29... Can't get much better than that, right? After all, Dirty Harry carried it. Unfortunately, I don't own a Model 29 - yet. Its been on my ever growing list of guns for a VERY long time.
Anyway... Here is a pic I took of the Python a while back. I am a Ruger fan and will say the Stainless 6" Ruger GP-100 in 357 with full under lug barrel. Also like the 4" Ruger Security Six. But I would never turn down a Colt Python. A fine handgun that is basically tuned right out of the box. I would take either over a Smith any day. I am just not a big Smith & Wesson fan. How can something be your "Best Revolver Ever" choice if you are too afraid to shoot it? Looks too pimpshined for my taste.
I'd vote for a M1917..........and lean towards the 'Smith version for my hands. (Said in jest, just to pick a fight, and I am now running and ducking for cover........thank God you are too afraid to shoot that thang) Dale I question whether it is possible to determine the "best" revolver (or auto) ever made.
There are candidates, of course, but they all have strengths and weaknesses. Colt Pythons and Diamondbacks come with superb finishes and tuned actions. Tey be very nice. They also come with the complications and difficulty in finding and fitting parts common to Colt DAs. Top of the line S&Ws (1950 and 1955 Target models, Registered Magnums, etc) are (JMO) better handling and shooting guns than Colts (including Pythons and Diamondbacks - did I mention i want a Diamondback?), and not far from them in quality of finish.
The Ruger DAs (Security Six, Service Six, GP 100, Redhawk, Super Redhawk) are extraordinarily rugged and easier to work on than Colt or S&W. But not as "nice" as a top-of-the-line S&W or Colt. Nothing has it all. Now as to WORST - hmm, probably RG of choice... How can something be your "Best Revolver Ever" choice if you are too afraid to shoot it?
Looks too pimpshined for my taste. I'd vote for a M1917..........and lean towards the 'Smith version for my hands. (Said in jest, just to pick a fight, and I am now running and ducking for cover........thank God you are too afraid to shoot that thang) Dalelol - only afraid to shoot it cuz I want to keep her new! But sometimes I wonder how accurate it would be... Then I tell myself "no... don't even think about a range day with this one." Best double action revolver, maybe so...
My vote for Best Revolver, tie.: Bacon Navy, and Prescott Army. They both shot a .38 Rimfire with comparable ballistics to the Colt Navy, but could be reloaded in 5 seconds. In 1858-59. This was when Colt, Remington, etc. were using paper cartridges, and Smith was still selling a .22 and an anemic .32 rf as a combat revolver. It was almost 15 years ahead of its time, and as a Southerner I am happy that the US Army ignored both maker's pleas to sell them to the North.
I used to own five Bacons and four Prescotts, and some of the experimental models were even more advanced than the Model 1873 ever was. They were limited only by the cartridge technology of the time. One of my Prescott was silver plated, and engraved with ivory grips. And I promise it did not look like a pimp gun at all. There were lots of finely made revolvers before Colt hung a lug under the barrel and raised the price.
4 pythons out of 5 that own unfired....couldn't touch my 586 with each its favorite ammo....sold all 5# 3 or more years ago.. when prices got over $ 1,200 used 1,500 un fired....sweet but I had under $ 500 in 4 of them and $ 500 in the unfired one..
enjoyed most of them for over20 years.... ps. .had another one even longer ago about the same in shooting great...and I'm a Colt guy... those guns sold, and two Voeres , SPAD, min 14. Savage 348 saddle carbine high priced now too... bought Kimbers CDP Pro custom shop, Kimber Covert 2, Para org warthog, Para carry 9, Styre SSP 9 mm all new Bushmaster varmint, AK 308 russian ...others and ammo.
you have to sell to get new...Pythons were a "great" investment back then not so much now! Last edited by DK PHILLIPS; 11-23-2013 at 03:30 PM. Got to agree with ArmyRat, if I had to bug out and only take one of my handguns with me the GP100 would be the one.
I carry this one when I go into abandoned mine property looking for equipment. It's killed Rattlesnakes, Ferrel hogs and dogs, and made me feel a lot more comfortable when I came upon a make shift drug lab out in the sticks.
It is the failsafe of hand guns. K-22.... Best.... Revolver...Ever This one is a 1950's model with period correct Sanderson grips. I like the Pythons, but I would never shoot one like a Smith or a Ruger. The 686 and the GP100 are the gold standard in revolvers. Saxpore's model 28 above is one of my favorites too.Best for what? That's always the issue, or part of it, seems to me. DKPhillips (sic) I agree, my 586 with a 6" barrel (early 80's model) is by far the finest, out of the box revolver I have ever had the pleasure of shootin'.
Glass smooth action. I know S&W gets a bad rap for their 80's model handguns. But I think I got a dang good one. I would put it against any out of the box revolver ever made. JMHO Wendell W Brown....I know what your saying..... when I shot it with 38 wc's cutting tighter groups than one of my pythons .... I shot the other 3 pythons against it to!..... started shooting the SW more....Colts went up in value beyond the dreams trading made for....
and I wanted to experience new models, types, kinds was going to keep the unfired one.... then prices climbed again when production stopped....no tears...just memories... like to pick up a beater but not at those prices.. Best for what? That's always the issue, or part of it, seems to me.Best for what?
Why bragging about on the internet of coarse! Colt python wins that category hands down, however you don't see too many blasting away at the range or in competition these days. The beautiful Python has been reduced to safe queen duty and staring in Zombie shows on TV. I guess you don't see many old K-22's that much either....
I just happen to think they one of best revolvers Smith ever made. I never see GP-100's around for sale used... So that says something. Maybe a year or two ago the local gun shop had a boatload of 686's for sale - out of nowhere. I still regret not picking one up!It's like buying a used car. Basically the ones you see for sale are not the best offering.
The good ones aren't sold. You can never go wrong with a GP-100. It will eat any type of 357 mag factory loads all day long and want more. The most Python-ish Colt I have is the Trooper Mk III. Bought it on a whim. Looked to be unfired, but maybe spent the weekend in a toolbox behind the seat of some offroad vehicle. Has a couple of dings in the frame and barrel underlug, but the wood looks like new.
I always wanted a Security Six with 6" barrel to complement my 4" Stainless Security Six, but the Trooper was cheaper at the time. It shoots on par with my 4" Ruger, and the Ruger trigger is better, IMO. In the revolver world, my Dad's Model 19 is my alltime favorite. Well after owing an out of time cylinder on my so called new colt python I purchased at my lgs.
And two poor quality brand new colt 1911a1's no more Colts for me. I been mainly a ruger fan ever since and I just got into the s&w revolvers mainly because of the s&w in there nickel finish and the 41mag caliber. Czy 586- 6 inch from memory is from that period too! I agree the finest out of the box revolver I have ever owned.... beat all my use to own revolvers cals. anaconda, colts and smith, Dan Wesson, the 44, specials I kept cause very close... 38's 357's revolvers...My 586 S&W was the first big bore revolver purchase.
Had to put it in layaway and pay it off. I replaced the walnut, factory grips with hough (sic) rubber grips. Still have the factory grips. But I have smallish hands and the aftermarkets fit me better. I have not shot it forever. She is sort of a safe queen. Back in the day, when I was young, dumb, and full off good eyesight. From a good solid rest, I could pick off clay birds with some regularity, at 100 yards with .357" SWC's Wendell My 586 S&W was the first big bore revolver purchase.

My Model 57 came with a set of Pachmayr grips along with the factory target grips. Hogues are similar.
Some like one, some the other, some neither... I was expecting a post about a Korth The 4" Korth combat 357 M I had ("had" because it was stolen in 1997) was a mechanical juwel.
The interior made me think of the interior of a nice watch. Although it shot very well ... my smallest groups were always with a 3" S&W Security Special also in 357 M, stolen during the same burglary. It was always my conviction that the combination of form and weight is more important as many newbies think ... not everyone has hands like A. Schwarzenegger I am proud to be the temporary custodian of this revolver, which hopefully will stay in the family for many more years. The best I can figure, my grandfather had a chance to go bear hunting in 1936 or 1937, and outfitted himself with this pistol, which had just been introduced.
For his rifle, he bought a Winchester Mod. 70, serial no. 1918 in 30 Gov't 06, which I have read was also manufactured in 1936 as part of the stock of 2,000 rifles Winchester made up before the official introduction of the Mod. 70 in 1937. He knew how to pick fine firearms.
