The 586 Magnum is a sidearm featured in Tom Clancy's The Division, based on the Smith & Wesson Model 586 Magnum revolver.
Real World Version
The Smith & Wesson Model 586 & Model 686 is a double action revolver of US origin that was introduced in the early 1980's. It was developed to produce a stronger framed revolver than the variants of the ubiquitous Model 10, but retaining the smaller grip and size.
The Model 586 is a double action revolver that uses what Smith & Wesson calls an L-frame. The L-frame combines the heavy frame of the earlier N-frame revolvers with the smaller grip of the K-frame revolvers. Different model numbers indicate the use of a blue steel or stainless steel frame and the use of fixed or adjustable sights. It is available with a variety of barrel lengths ranging from 2.5 to 8.75 inches.
The Model 586 fires the .357 Magnum round from a 6 shot cylinder. As with most .357 Magnum revolvers it is also able to fire the smaller and less powerful .38 Special round. Effective range is a few dozen meters.
