jkrispies Posted December 21, 2011 Share Posted December 21, 2011 (edited) Hi all! I have a Smith and Wesson 686 that's about 17 years old and had a bunch of rounds put through it when initially purchased, though not so much lately. I bought it with a 6" barrel and have generally wished that it was shorter when I've taken it out hiking and fishing. I'm playing with the idea of swapping out the 6"er with a 4" (or possibly a 3") for use as a trail gun. I might port it, or I might not... If I could find a smith that would do a kick-butt trigger job on it at the same time, that would be a bonus, but mainly I'm just looking at barrel options right now. Any recommendations? [Please note that this as a defensive firearm for protection against the mountain lions and packs of coyotes in the hills I frequent, rather than as a competition revolver which will "typically" go bang due to a lightened trigger, etc... though maximum accuracy from a quality barrel would certainly be appreciated since I do like to shoot it for fun.] My knowledge base is more in the Glock/1911 realm, so any info will be well appreciated. Thanks, J Edited December 21, 2011 by jkrispies Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
