    Checkered or smooth?

    Looking again at Zig Zagger's 686 with smooth grips, I really like the way they look. Kinda looks like it might just jump in your hand. I have been considering buying the checkered grips but you may have changed my mind.
    What do you guys think about the checkered as opposed to the smooth grips. I think the checkered would be a little more secure in the hand but my 686 doesn't kick that much to worry about it. Aside from the $20.00 or so difference in price, any opinions?

    My 686PP 357 Magnum with the stock, rubber, hogue, grips.

    TxP I got smooth on my .44 & .357 and they feel great plus I think they look a little better. When I shoot a gun with checker stocks on them a lot like a couple hundred rounds my hand feels it worst than with the smooth ones. Checkers just kind of dig in a little to much for a lot of shooting.

    Got me another Smith today, a 29-2 with the 6.5 inch barrel. Great bluing and trigger on this one, they don't make them like this anymore.

    i've had two smith&wesson revolvers... my first was a s&w model 13-2 that really kinda got me hooked on the firepower of a magnum round.. then i just hed to have a 6" model 27 and about 10 years ago i got a chance to trade the model 13 for a 1968 vintage model 27 6" with patrage sights... it was 95% with box and papers..... you'd really have a hard time talking me out of this one!

    LIFE IS SHORT................

    I'm getting old and I've come to that part of life where the nicest thing you can say about anything you've owned is,"I would buy another one". Am I a big handgun collector? NO Still of the dozen or so guns that I own most are S&W. IMHO there is not a finer handgun on the market period. end of subject. Yes there are others that many may beleive are better, and you know what, that's OK too. It's their money,still spent what you have wisely!

    I totally understand your position but, many folks felt the same about Chevy, Ford, ..blah, blah. Now Toyota, Nissan and Honda are running all over em, with a better product too.

    Times change. Product loyalty? Well, that’s a different story.

    Yes when it became evident that the Auto industry was going down I did switch to foreign cars but where is there a company that makes a better revolver than S&W. Yes there are cheaper ones but none as good. Ruger makes a good product but I feel that S&W is better. Colt is out of the revolver market and did make a good product. I have owned several in the past Put I still think that the S&W was and is better. The Taurus , Rossi and Charter Arms may be cheaper but I have never seen one better than a S&W. Jim

    I agree with you Jimg11. S&W has a very fine product and been at it a long time. I have a Colt and I wish they still made revolvers as they was a very fine gun. I buy Rugers also but they go straight to the smith for a trigger job and then they are a good gun. Their single action guns are the best out there. These three are the only ones I'll ever own.

    Haymaker -

    Get the S&W 686 in a 2 1/2 " barrel or 4" for a duty gun. It was or is one of the best revolvers that S&W ever made.

    If you find a no dash or dash -1 ....make sure the Hammer nose bushing has been replaced by the factory. There was a defect [ too large of a hole for the firing pin ] in these earlier models. S&W will correct this problem for free, including shipping in most cases. Firing .357 mag. loads in this gun without the replacement........sometimes allowed the primer casing to be forced into the bushing hole.

    Still the best revolver I have ever fired !

    Talking S&W Model 19 2 1/2"

    I really like the model 19 S&Ws

    This is one with custom stocks, bobbed hammer, and a really smooth action.
