Things I liked: I was excited to take delivery of this replica today. It certainly has the look and feel of the real S&W model (I have a real steel 686).
Things I would have changed: Make it work! I managed to put 50 rounds through the gun but it does not work in double action about 4 out of 5 times and in single action about 1 out of 5 times. By not working, I mean that the trigger cannot be pulled and/or the hammer will not come back. The gun cannot be fired. In these cases, it takes considerable jiggling and twisting of the cylinder, cylinder release, hammer, etc to get the pistol to a fireable condition. This problem exists whether the cylinder is loaded or not. I tried both cylinders and had the same problems with each. When it does work, the trigger is hard to pull - especially in double action mode. The all black sights are difficult to work with.
What others should know: Obviously I got a defective gun; however, I even paid the extra $10 to have the gun test fired. Apparently, it was not test fired in double action mode and the tester must have got lucky on those 10 shots. This would have been the most expensive replica in my small collection; however, I'm returning it. I'll begin the return hassle tomorrow.
Things I liked: It is approximately the same weight and has the same feel as my S&W 357. From 10 meters it is good inexpensive practice that I am told will transfer to my 357.
Things I would have changed: Make the front sight with a red plastic tip like the 357.
What others should know: This is a fun revolver to use on paper targets and plinking in general. I love that it was made in Germany with excellent German precision. The five star accuracy rating I gave was compared to other pellet revolvers and pistols I own and shoot rather than hits on the bulls eye.
Things I liked: The first time I shot it it wouldn't always shoot the pellet and sometimes the double action needs two pulls. I shouldn't have checked 1 star for accuracy because I didn't shoot it enough to know. I own S&W .357 and .44 Performance Center revolvers and had high hopes for this. Maybe I just have bad luck with airguns because I bought a $600 HW90 from Pyramid and the gas piston that was supposed to last decades broke after 13 months - 1 month after the warranty expired.

Are there any other issues with the pistol other than the extra magazines causing the pellet jams
Just received my 4" 586. Very nice. Two questions: 1) Can it be dry-fired? (didn't see it mentioned in manual) 2) Is Crosman pellgun oil OK for lubricating gun? (manual specifies non-petroleum RWS Spring Cylinder oil, which I don't have. Have plenty of Crosman oil)
Yes to both.
