Yep two different pistols, I don't own a 686, I do own a 586 (same in blue) and own a 642. My 586 has a 6" barrel, my 642 has a 1 7/8" barrel. The 586 has a full grip, the642 is a half grip. The 586 is an all steel pistol, the 642 is 50% aluminum. Hard to honestly compare trigger, two truly different pistols IMHO. The two I have far different uses.
No Idea how the 642 compares to a HK? I can say for the intended need the 642 is a fine pistol, like any snub nose revolver one you will have to practice with often to get the feel of.
