Kris, if I remember correctly from other posts, you are in Canada, right? So any advice I could give you is null and void if this is true. There is only one gunsmith to send your 686 to, and that is Joe Leinenger who operates The Brush Creek Ltd., also know as MOJO. His website is: thebrushcreekltd.com and his number is 248-867-8685. If you are in Canada, then this won't help you a bit I don't think. Good luck.
