Serial dates to 1991/92.
S&W offered at least eight different six inch barreled 6 shot 686's thru the Performance Center. One of them was a "carry comp" as well as the "competitor", "target", "hunter", etc.
Thanks for that Jim, I really appreciate you taking the time.
Just as a matter of interest how do you tell different Performance Center models from each other when you buy them used?
Cheers and many thanks
