It has the dreaded lock. Anybody with a 686 had any lock related problems?

Took the wife dress shopping today, and she found just the perfect one. After she told me about it, I mentioned the new pistol, and she said “can we use it for the concealed classes I want us to take”? Yes dear, says I (happy to escape with no drama). That went well....

www.originalprecision.com manufactures a titanium plug to replace the jlock safety if you want.

Hopefully the dress was no more than $30. Don't need useless crap like that cutting into component funds.

How did you buy the gun without her knowing in the first place? I have no idea how to get away with something like that.

Sneaky, I think it’s all in the timing. And, she spends money like crazy, whereas I hardly ever buy anything for me. She has been after me for us to take the concealed carry course, and she hates my Beretta PX4 (too many knobs, switches and levers), but likes revolvers. She has a snubbie 38, but couldn’t hit the truck with it. So this one should be something she can shoot pretty well. Honestly, the perfect pistol for her would probably be a Colt Diamondback in 38, but that’s just too expensive. I have one in 22, and she likes it. Sure hope she’ll like this bigger heavier pistol. It won’t kick at all with 38s.

A used S&W 686 in 357 was my first fun. I rarely shoot it but still love it. Never new about this lock up problem. I used to shoot mine A lot back when 357maf was afforable.

Anyways hope u enjoy yours as much as I've enjoyed mine.

.38s in a 2.5" 686 are very pleasant and easy to shoot. Not exactly a small pistol, more like a big pistol with a short barrel, but very good for engaging non or infrequent shooters.

I have a Taurus tracker (basically a knock off 686 I believe) that is a joy to shoot with 38s. My wife loves it, and has all but claimed it as her own.

We just reached 70 1/2, so had to take the minimum req’d distribution. That was a decent sum of money. Some got reinvested and I had some sent to the checking account (slush fund). If we don’t spend money, it’ll all wind up going to the kids. Might as well spend it before they get it. Wait till she sees what I got her for our 50th anniversary - this weekend. She may pee down her leg. We spent many years pinching pennies and saving money, and now it’s time to enjoy the results. But it’s still hard to spend money. It goes against our mindset.

I spent probably 4 months thinking about that 686 and the cost. Finally decided that I did want it, so I went and bought it. Next up is a Tikka T1x, whenever I can actually handle and examine one, and then what scope to buy.

All those long years of saving money, and now we are gonna spend some.
