I have the same 6" GP with the old style rubber grips with wood inserts. It's a good shooter although the trigger is not as nice as my S&W L frame.

I was surprised the trigger is smooth as silk, did a read up they`re polished and tuned at the factory...

I love revolvers. With 22 rifles, I stick to Marlin, with centerfire revolvers, I stick to S&W. The only Ruger I have is a Single Six, but I have enjoyed shooting a GP100 before - enjoy!

I finally got to the rock pit today..The GP shoots very well after a minor sight adjustment...bounced a folgers coffee can at 50 yards and was ringing the 125 yard sillouette,..I`m sure this is normal for a 6" 357 mag but it`s the best I`ve ever done with a handgun....I tried a handload I whipped up that I really like, a 158 hardcast swc over 16.5gr W296...I really like this revolver

I would like to know is the blued finish a quality looking dark deep blue like the old guns had? Seems very few new revolvers come in blued finish now.
Which 686 did you get? The stock line, pro version or the top line version. The reason I ask is because you said the trigger has been tuned from factory.
I have to quit looking at guns you guys have got. It makes temptation hard to pass on.
