I have a couple dozen revolvers, 1 single action a Beretta Stampede, 1 Taurus snubby, a Ruger .357 and a pair of Rossi 44 Specials. The rest are all Smith & Wesson, A few of my favorites are:
629 Mountain Gun
686 CS-1 3"
60 3" adj sights
629 Classic 6.5 inch
There are lots more
I have two S&W J- frames...nice reliable revolvers.
Only one. Model 66 6" SS .357magnum
I have a model 15-2 4" .38sp. I would like to get a 19 or a 686.
I have three:
Model 13-2 .357 Mag
Model 340PD .357 Mag
Model 642 .38 Spl +P
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If you find a no dash or dash -1 ....make sure the Hammer nose bushing has been replaced by the factory.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 !
I really like the model 19 S&Ws
This is one with custom stocks, bobbed hammer, and a really smooth action.
What a great group here at the forum. On some boards if you mention S&W these days you get flamed by guys that go on a rant about the hole in the gun. I think they're fine guns and just don't let the hole bother me. Now Ruger's warning on the barrel - that bothers me.
