What is the barrel length on the 686?

I am thinking the same way GIshooter and Jake are -
I took the -6 (dash 6) as part of the model number - the version of that particular model. 

I didn't think it was the barrel length.

No, its not barrel length. The -6 come out 2001 and its a designation number for the model. The 686-6, the -6 for the 686 model was for hammer and trigger key lock. 

From the Standard Catalog of Smith & Wesson, 3rd Edition, page 271:

686 no dash (1980): regular production started
686-1 (1986): radius stud package, floating hand (Don't ask me what that means.)
686-2 (1987): change hammer nose, bushing and associated parts
686-3 (1988): new yoke retention system
686-4 (1993): Change rear sight leaf, drill and tap frame, change extractor, introduce Hogue grips
686-5 (1997): Change frame design to eliminate cylinder stop stud, eliminate serrated tangs, change to MIM hammer with floating firing pin, change to MIM trigger, change internal lockwork
686-6 (2001): Internal hammer and trigger key lock
686-7 (2002): Performance center version in .38 Super Automatic

OK I believe SHAP357 got the point back to the original question What's the barrel length ??  And I would be willing to bet. it's 6 inches

Four inches guys, sorry about that.

The -6 is the version/type of 686.

Avon aint that far away either! Where are you located, maybe Ill shorten up the distance for you.
