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?

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.

Swedish K31 that a local sporting goods chain used to sell for $89. I hemmed & hawed over it, and they sold out. Was going thru a WW1 / WW2 bolt gun phase, and they are cool guns. Still never owned one, and you can't touch one for $89 today.

One of the East German arsenal tool sets for AK's.
Was under $200 but had 5 kids, so I just got the chamber gauge set.
If I had bought that then, and a case of "rusty Romy's" .......

If frogs had wings...
