Our Assessment: The 386 Sc/S is a compact, lightweight, double action revolver from Smith & Wesson which is just about the smallest and lightest gun you’re going to find that carries seven rounds of .357 Magnum. With its excellent trigger and comfortable grips, this revolver would make a fine home defense handgun, hunting sidearm, concealed carry gun, or addition to a collection lacking a revolver. With the ability to add an optic and the extra round, it could also be good for revolver competition shooting. Please see our pictures and good luck!
