686 CS-1, 4", .357, SS, Issued 1988  Guns > Pistols > Smith & Wesson Revolvers > Full Frame Revolver
Description: S&W M-686 CS-1 (U.S. Customs), 4 inch .357mag, Issued 1988, S&W Product Code was 104229. Most likely one of the very last government revolver orders. “The Distinguished Combat Magnum Stainless”. Very clean used 6 shot single or double action revolver, made at the time to very tight U.S. Customs specs and is VERY SMOOTH in double action. Rate overall at 95% with no marks or wear worth mention / no box. (Note model markings on frame is missing the last digit (6) due to being stamped too far to the right – SEE PHOTOS – also visible are the CS-1 markings.)

Some additional information I found on the web:

Let’s start by defining what a 686 CS-1 is.....and is not. The 686 CS-1's were NOT Performance Center guns. The Performance Center had not been created yet when the CS-1's were produced. The 686 CS-1's were factory guns made to the US Customs Service specifications.

Made in 1988 according to the SCSW, 1987 to 1992 according to various other sources, the 686 CS-1's were 6-shot 686's made in three barrel lengths, 3 inch - 4 inch and a small quantity (unknown how many) of 6 inch guns for the Customs Service pistol team.

The 686 CS-1's were finished in a dull gray bead blast finish with flash chromed hammers and triggers. They featured a narrow black blade front sight (1/10) and plain adjustable black rear sight. The firing pin was mounted on the hammer. All three barrel lengths featured a round butt grip frame.
