Our Assessment: The Smith and Wesson Model 1086 “It is constructed entirely of stainless steel, a 4.25in barrel and a 9 round single column magazine. It is available with fixed or adjustable sights. The model 1086 was in the S&W 1000 series of third generation semi-automatic handguns. Variations include the models 1046, 1026, 1066, 1076 (FBI model) and 1086. The 1000 series were some of the most robust, sturdy 10 mm handguns ever built, easily handling the power of this potent cartridge. Other third generation S&W auto series include the 5906, 4006 and 4506.” This pistol was made sometime in 1989-1990 and is still in Excellent condition. It almost looks like a 1911 but has a double trigger pull, this stainless beast should be reliable and accurate for a long time to come. With the box and being in such high condition, it may tempt some collectors who missed out in the 90’s. Please see our pictures and good luck in the auction.-K.F.
