I have very limited experience with the 686 4". I sent about 150 rounds of 38+P and .357 mag down range using a range gun. My experience was not a good one. Granted the gun was dirty indicating that it had been used that day. The action was so tight that I often had to use two fingers to pull the trigger in DA. I wondered a the time if the previous user had dropped it or abused it. Groups were averaging 6 to 7 inches at "5 yards". My GP100 4" has handled over 500 rounds at a time without a failure. After dialing the sights in, 2.5 inch groups are common at 7 yards... and I have 60 year old eyes. I'm sure that others have had different experiences with S&W, but this was my experience.
