Bought a Used S&W 586 4" Bbl...what do I check before I shoot it?
I know that this weapon hasn't been fired in ~15 years - my friend bought it and never used it.
The cylinder rolls and everything seems to function properly when I dry fire it.
I've checked the cylinder lockup and movement after I cocked the hammer and then rechecked after I squeezed
(and held) the trigger.
All in all the weapon seems solid...with the exception of some normal wear and tear.
What other items should I check before I run some rounds through it?
Thanks in advance,
