Yes, the S&W 686 comes in a 6" barrel. But you don't have to purchase a whole new gun. Just order the 6" barrel and take it and your 686 4" to a gunsmith and he will change the barrels.

Good luck!

There were plenty of 6" 686-4s made. I have one myself.

I had one too, gave it to my youngest son for his 18th birthday. Internet has made the -4 models one of the most sought after 686s, thus many of them are selling for more than new models. BTW, I have newer and older Smiths and have no preference. Is there reasoning behind your choice other than the internet?
