I also didn't care for how thin some of the metal was here and there and preferred the 6-shot beefier version
Many have made the argument that the seven-shot version of the 686 is actually stronger than the six-shot due to the location of the cylinder stop cut-outs, as carguychris pointed out:

Some shooters believe that the 7-shot cylinder is actually stronger because the cylinder stop notches are between the cylinders where the metal is thicker.
In truth, it's probably a rather esoteric question because, for all practical purposes, either version is probably plenty strong enough for the stoutest safe loads.
