picked it up yesterday. my first revolver. 686ssr
Freakin sweet!! I miss my model 66 in a bad way. I love the 4" combat wheel guns.
Nice wheel gun! Is that a performance center model? 357 ?
Nice piece there tommy.
Thanks guys! im really happy with it.
It's supposed to fill the gap between PC and the standard models. made for competing specifically in ssr (stock service revolver). Upgraded trigger, chamfered charge holes, forged trigger/hammer instead of MIM, etc. Also has a satin stainless finish instead of the standard brushed.
The trigger is ridiculous in single action, no creep, breaks like glass, and zero overtravel. shooting tomorrow
edit: and yes, its a 357
Whats the poundage on the double action trigger pull?? I've never shot a performance center revolver...
Nice Hawg Leg...
Its not a PC, but im not sure about the DA pull weight. Its plenty light.
Thanks for the info Trob. I have a 629 Power port. .44 mag, ported, 6" barrel. The SA trigger pull on it is sweet, but not to impressed with the DA.
I handled a 629 that had the guts polished and tweaked... DA was around 2lbs, single action was
Do you know who "Tweaked" it. I'm sure I could send mine back to S&W, but just curious if it was someone local.
I believe he did it himself... If I was going to have a trigger job done on a double action Smith I would either take it to Bolsa Gunsmithing or send it to Maraviov Gunsmithing in Woodland.. I don't know, because I've never dealt with Smith, but most companies will not mess with the triggers as long as they function within spec... Does the smith custom shop do stuff like that??
2 lb for DA....damn, thats light.
......... hey jason, that little cutie in your sig, double action or single ? kidding.
It was.... Honestly the pull was so light, I would never own a revolver set up like this one unless I was shooting competition with it...
thats what i was thinking too....
I hate to call bullshit on DA but I have my .270 set @ 2# from the factory and it goes off when I'm thinking about pulling the trigger!
