Model 586
Calibre .357 Mag
Price: £400

The Smith & Wesson Model 586, is a double-action revolver chambered for the .357 Magnum cartridge.

It is essentially the same weapon as the S&W Model 686, but the 586 has a carbon steel construction and is available in a blued or nickel finish,
while the 686 has a stainless steel construction. Also, since the 586 was directed more to law enforcement, most have shorter barrels than the 686.

In addition to being able to chamber and fire .357 Magnum cartridges, the 586 will chamber and fire .38 Special cartridges, as the .357 Magnum was developed from the .38 Special. The magnum case is slightly longer (0.1 in) to prevent magnum rounds from being chambered and fired in handguns chambered only for the .38 Special.

The 586 has been available with 2½ in, 3 in, 4 in & 6 inch , barrel lengths as standard models and other barrel lengths either by special order from S & W's Performance Center custom shop.

The Model 586 uses S & W's L (medium) revolver frame, with a K-Frame sized grip mated to a larger diameter cylinder.

This is the blued 4 Inch version in excellent condition, custome walnut grips & and comes with its original box
