New wheel gun

This afternoon I was able to trade for a Smith and Wesson 681. Four inch barrel two sets of grips two speed loaders.

The best part is I was able to trade off a subpar 9mm, the worst part is I had to let go of my SKS.
This is my first S&W. The trigger is AWESOME! Balance is perfect. Someone had the barrel ported, it looks like Magna Porting.

    Aim higher, or get a bigger gun.

    What kind of 9mm?

    An Arcus 98 DAC. It is a Bulgarian High Power copy with a DA/SA trigger. Pretty accurate pistol but it was never reliable enough to be a carry gun or a HD gun.

    My little brother thought he would be tough and shoot a cylinder full without ears. He did it but he looked dazed and confused afterwards.

    That is a sweet looking Smith! Don't worry about the SKS, those you can find anywhere.

    So, you traded a crappy hi-power knockoff and an SKS?!?


    I hate you.:wink:


    Can I bring you with the next time I'm buying/trading something?

    That's purty! I love that model, and the grips have just enough honest wear to give it character.

    Really nice piece. Being rid of the Arcus was a good decision. I bought a stack of SKS's years ago for the price of an AR so they were always great trade fodder. Now that Shernic has their bullpup stock out I am glad I still have a few.

    I promise that it usually does not go this well for me.

    Thank you gentlemen. I hope to be able to slip away from the house long enough today to shoot a group or two. Maybe I will put the other stocks on it and see how they feel.

    Houge grips always seem to bring revolvers to my natural point of aim but YMMV.

    Very nice revolver. A 4" barreled L-frame is a great size for carrying & comfortably shooting magnum ammo.
    I have the 4" 686, which is the same gun with adjustable sights. You did well!

    Looks like you got a good one! :up: That porting will make some interesting fireballs at dusk! :up: :up:
    You got the better end of the trade, IMO.

    I am looking forward to some dusk shooting. I did get the better end of the deal.
