686-8 plus with 2.5 inch barrel
« on: August 02, 2017, 03:21:38 pm »
Genuine 7 shot .357 magnum  :cool.

686+ with the standard black grips and my tulip wood grips as well.

$650 and at this moment I'd prefer buyer to cover the cost of shipping and handling.

Carried often but shot little, it has maybe 600 rounds through it.

Do we forget that cops were primarily still using 6 Shot Revolvers well through the mid 80's? It wasn't until after 1986 that most departments then relented and went to autos.
Capacity wasn't really an issue then... and honestly really it's not even an issue now.
Ray Chapman, used to say that the 125-grain Magnum load’s almost magical stopping power was the only reason to load .357 instead of .38 Special +P ammunition into a fighting revolver chambered for the Magnum round. I agree. - Massad Ayoob

    Thank you!

    I'm hoping the pricing isn't too harsh seeing as this is the first gun I've ever sold. The tulip grips alone cost me over a hundred though and the gun is in good shape.

    Hey, your time spent making sure it was 100% reliable as a carry gun for the next owner has to be worth something - right?   :cool

    The last used revolver I was looking at was a 66-2, round butt, similar length barrel.  $650 asking price. 

    So, with the $100 tulipwood grips thrown in?  And no internal lock?

    You might be a little low.

    It does have the internal lock. Thank you for the feedback, though!  :thumbup1

    Oh. 

    I looked at the last picture and didn't see it. 

    Looking at the 4th picture now that you mention it, I can just barely see it.  And now knowing where it is, I can sorta see it in the last picture.  It's a little fuzzy.

    I noticed that too, but seeing as I had to borrow a camera, the other one's are crisp and do show the lock, and I still have no other camera to use with me right now to retake the pic, I though I'd keep it.
