Price Drop!
Donít need two 357's so this one is up for grabs. 6 shot and whatís in the pics is what I have. $675 and you pay the fee at a Thurston or Lewis Co FFL.

Does your model hold six or seven rounds?  Would love to see some pics. Thanks!

If it is in fact a dash one as stated it is most definitely a 6 shot. It wasn't until much later dash guns for the 686 that the 7 shot was introduced.

The dash is basically a revision change. Every time there was a decent change to that model the dash number went up by one. If there was no dash then it was the first version of that model.

Here are some of them for the 686
686 (1980): No dash, Begin regular production.
686-1 (1986): Radius stud package; floating hand.
686-M (1987): Recall by S&W and overstamped to indicate a modification by the factory or warranty station; applies to 686 and 686-1 only.
686-2 (1987): Change hammer nose, bushing and associated parts.
686-3 (1988): New yoke retention system.
686-4 (1993): Change rear sight leaf, drill and tap frame, change extractor, introduce Hogue grips.
686-5 (1997): Change frame design to eliminate cylinder stop stud; eliminate serrated tangs; change to MIM hammer with floating firing pin, change to MIM trigger, change internal lockwork.
686-6 (2001): Internal hammer and trigger key lock.
686-7 (2002): Performance Center variation in .38 Super.

Wow. Looks identical to the 686 my Dad gave me before he died. It even has the same type of Pachmayr grips. Would love to have a pair if I had the cash right now.
