"Picked up this 386PD used. After 50+ rounds various 38, 38+P, 357mag handloads and 357mag factory, changed the grip to an old Pachmayr K-frame round butt Presentation Compact I had from a snubby M66 (miss that girl). What a difference in feel and handling, to the better! Had to destroy the Hogue grip to get it off. Not sorry. Now my favorite 357. In a good holster, can't even tell it's there. Stock up on 7-round HKS speed loaders when you can, the strip loaders are bogus. Thinking about upgrading the sights to tritium or dual Tru-glo or Williams Firesights (got a set of Williams' on a Ruger SRH 44 and like them). Anyone change the sights on a 386PD?"

"very light easy to carry. this revolver has three different metals in its construction they accumulate and dissipate heat at different speeds. if i really ramp up the rounds i put through it in a short period of time 35+ it gets a bit harder to cycle. with that said its really not a target revolver its a carry for protection gun and its very accurate. some say its unplesant to shoot with .357 loads and i would dissagree with the exception of remingtons 180 grain sjhp those have a bite. i have never shot +p 38s through it so i cant give you any report on those. this revolver is accurate reliable light weight and easy to carry. thats what its all about. when harsh language wont do this fills the bill .i am going to send it to smith & wesson for a master action work over. the last one they did changed that revolver to the next level of accuracy. hope this helps,"
