Welcome to TGT.Another missed one is a nickeled 4" 586 that probably had never been fired at Nix Shooting Supplies back in the late 90s. I was foolishly only interested in stainless guns at the time. I don't remember the price, but I'm sure it was not bad.
I thought the 586 was blue?
Were they nickel also?
1980s up until about 1991 apparently:They were and are blued steel. the 686 was the stainless version. I can't recall S&W offering a 586 in nickel from the factory, and personally have never seen one. but it's possible they were offered as an option with the Performance Shop.
