That's a very nice revolver! I'm hoping to upgrade from my Heritage .22 convertible to a Single Six at some point or, if I could find one, a Colt Frontier Scout.

Congrats on the excellent purchase. What a good way to start off the love of wheel guns.

My S&W 686 has a pretty strange feel to the trigger. The Smith has a long heavy pull. Then, when the cylinder locks in place, the trigger hits a hard stop. With a few pounds more pressure the trigger snaps and the gun fires. Is it supposed to feel like that?

I compared it to Winds Ruger GP-100. I like that a lot better than the Smith. The Ruger also has a small (very small) catch when the cylinder locks up, but finishing the pull is smooth.

Is what I'm describing normal for a revolver trigger, specifically for a Smith?

all my double action revolvers are like drawing a compound bow, it smoothly & gradually gets harder until BOOM, you hit that let off.

the triggers on my H&R & New England revolvers are like drawing a 50 or 60 pound bow, my S&W is like drawing a 25 pound bow. a guy I know just bought a used S&W 500, his trigger felt exactly the same as mine.

in all my revolvers, I hear the noises of all the mechanicals & see the cylinder rotate & lock but don't feel each individual step of the process like you describe. is the gun new? maybe it will smooth out with time?

Heck yeah. Me too. Hopefully my next one will be an 8 shot .357 Magnum.
