    S@W Performance Center worth the money?

    I have a relatively new Model 686. S@W Performance Center offers this service package for $250. Do you think it worth the money? I am not familiar with glass beading. Does this make sense on a "new" gun, or is it for older models that need the surface cleaned up? Here is the package:
    Glass Bead Finish
    Tuned Action
    Trigger Stop
    Chamfer Charge Holes
    Test Fire for Function
    Thanks in advance for your opinions.

    It sounds like a reasonable price to me. That seems like a fair amount of work, by trained gunsmiths no less, for that ammount of money. I assume that is factory warranted as well. You might find it cheaper locally, but work by the guys who built it is probably going to be pretty good. I don't know what shop rates are for the average gunsmith, but $250 might be 3 hrs labor on your car, probably less most of the time.
    If I had a pretty polished finish I would probably pass on the bead blast, but that's me. The real question is: What problem, if any, is it fixing? Glare reduction maybe? If there is a practical reason to do it, then you have to decide if it applies to your application.

    I would skip on the finish unless you have an old worn finish or are unhappy with your current finish. They should give you a substantially lower price if you do not have the finish done as well.
