The trigger is just fine, but some of the parts aren't fit absolutely perfectly, there are a few aesthetic issues with it, and it is not comfortable to shoot at all, even though the gun shoots fairly decent groups. I would like to own a PPK, just not this one. Hopefully down the line I can snag one with dual serial numbers on the slide and frame.

I'd want a Walther TPH if shooting it didn't mean getting slide-bit. Oh well, Buckmark it is....

Just bought a Smith & Wesson Model 29 with 8 3/8 inch barrel. I'm going to buy either a .45ACP pistol or jump to .357 Magnum to build up to the Model 29.

S&W Model 4506--->S&W Model 686--->S&W Model 29

Going to buy an 1911A1 next (probably Rock Island Armory). Trying to decide between going for half lug Ruger GP100, a Smith & Wesson Model 19-5, or 586/686. I'm leaning towards one of the first two (the GP100(s) with half lubeing $650 plus $50 shipping & $550 with unknown shipping, the 19-5(s) being $395 plus $25 shipping, $565 plus $35 shipping, $595 plus $25 shipping).

686. Trust me, it's worth the money (think of it as an investment); I've had one for nearly a decade, and I've not shot, handled, or seen a better revolver

I'm assuming since you're mentioning the 19s with shipping costs that you're going to buy them online. If you get a 19, get a -4 or before. It should be about the same cost, and it will have a pinned barrel, which will give you extra cool points, which is what revolvers are all about. If you want a more functional revolver, get a 686 (early vintage, no key locks or MIM parts or all that crap) and enjoy the stainless steel finish. Additionally, the compromise between cool and function is the 66, the stainless steel version of the Model 19, but again, get an early vintage to lock in those cool points if you want them. Be sure to look for guns that have the flash chromed hammer and trigger and not the case colored ones too.

Thanks but for the most part I prefer blued firearms (the 686 and 66 were both stainless steel right?). Though that being said I did see a great looking (SS/Nickel finish aside) 686 at a Cheaper Than Dirt for $740.

I want to buy a cheap pistol caliber carbine.

Right now I am thinking from expensive down is an AR in 9mm, Beretta Cx4 Storm, or the Sub 2000.
