S&W 681 how rare?
A local shop just got a used S&W model 681 stainless 4" barrel fixed sights really clean to. My questions are are these guns rare,also its this gun a K or L frame? I know its a stainless version of a 581 but not much more. Thanks for any help.

I have one. I used it for a few years as my duty gun before transitioning to a semi-automatic pistol. It is a great revolver! And yes, while not super rare, they are popular with users, and thus you don't see alot of them on the market...at least I haven't in my travels.
The 681 is the fixed sight version of the 686, which was one of Smith's most popular revolvers ever. It is built on the L-frame, which is a heavier version of the K-frame, built to handle a steady diet of magnum .357 loads.
I would recommend getting it...I paid $275 for mine back in 1991 or so.

1943 - 2009
The total production of the S&W Model 681 was 53,180, from 1980 to 1992.
Not especially rare.
When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
And the women come out to cut up what remains,
Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
And go to your God like a soldier.
