Our Assessment: The 586 has been made in a variety of configurations since 1980 filling just about any role that could be asked of a .357 Magnum revolver. This example is the Performance Center 586 L-Comp with a 3” ported barrel, round butt grip frame, and a matte black finish. With its 7-round capacity, Performance Center tuned action, and ported barrel to reduce recoil, this would be a great carry gun. The gun is in Fine Plus condition with a few scattered light marks, a great bore, and strong mechanics. If you’re a Smith collector or just want a powerful revolver for your outdoor adventures, this is a great gun to pick up. Please see our photos and good luck!
