Not sure about finest/highest quality but I love the heck out of my 4" 686 and I'm sure I'd love the 6" too!

Don't Tread On Me is what it says and I'll take that to my grave.

Nothing wrong with my 4" 686 either and I've had it for about 25 years.

Re: S&W oppinions needed

My personal pick would be an early Model 19 K-frame for light weight and balance and because it carries well. But it would give up a bit in durability to the 686. Although they are heavy duty, I always thought the N-framed M27's were beautifully made .357's. My buddy has one with a 5" barrel. It seems to balance itself, and the blueing is flawless. I will never sell my 4" M27. It's not my preference for length but it's too sweet a wheelgun.
