The stainless steel Smith & Wesson 686 SSR Centerfire Revolver is based on the medium L-frame, one of the most popular double-action revolver frames in history. It's a lawman's carry-gun favorite due to its combination of magnum-grade strength and relative compactness. Constructed as Smith & Wesson's step up from standard models — with tighter tolerances and competition-grade accuracy. Custom barrel with precision recessed crown. Chamfered charge holes. Chambered for .357 Magnum/.38 Special+P and features an adjustable white-outline rear sight and an interchangeable red ramp front sight. Embossed mainspring. Ergonomic wood grip forces a high-hand hold, improving follow-up shots and overall accruacy.
