Default 686-3 plus back from sw

Took sw 6 months to repair my 686. But I think it was worth the wait. Prelock plus, o ya. It was a 6 shooter. Now I have a plus.

Under full load the cases would not come out of the original cylinder. It actually locked up.
The cylinder needed replacement. So I asked if I could upgrade the cylinder. The upgrade was unfluted 7 shot. They had to return and test fire. I also see they replaced some springs too.
Yup 6 months.

NICE!
I'd say if it functions 100%, it was worth the wait.

Hope to run to the range in the next day or so for a test run. I've got some nice xtp 158 with some h110 I'm dying to play with.

That's cool! I didn't realize they could put a 7-round cylinder into a 6-round gun. Does the double action trigger pull feel different now? Should be a shorter travel to get to the next round.
