I have a model 14 no dash that I shoot the DR matches with my question is How many models are there that have the full lug on the barrel like the 14-6 ? that I see being sold in commercial row.
      And was there a production model better than the other models ?

I don’t know which will be “better”. The early models likely had much better fitted actions. So trigger action will likely be better. But also the early models had forcing cone geometry that wasn’t the best for accuracy. I think the later models fixed these issues (by the mid 90s anyway) because the 586 I have is very accurate. The trigger actions on these later models need more work to be as nice as the older models though. So you pay your money and take your chances.

Model 14-5 is a square butt grip. I think everything after that is a round butt.

Model 14s with target fixings made in the 60s and new 686s with full underlugs are both capable of clearing 90s at the long line and 275+ overall. 

The weight distribution will be the biggest difference felt by the shooter.  Other than that, I'd say hammer geometry.  Third, action feel.  But both will get you there.  If you told me I had to shoot one or another I'd pick the 14 but only for physical reasons.

A friend of mine recently purchased a new Model 14 and it's a 14-9 K-Frame. Although I have not fired his gun, I have handled it and it is a 14-9.

This is a picture of a 14-6 and a 14-8. The -6 was the perfect year IMHO. Full lug, drilled and tapped, original quality trigger and round butt frame. The -8 had mim parts in the trigger, no full lug, lawyer lock and shallow rifling's. After a little bit of trigger work the -8 shot acceptable groups but the -6 didn't need any work. After the -7 they quit making them for a long time. The newer ones are "classics"

The full lug 14-5,-6 and-7 models are anywhere from $800.00-$1k.

Many of them are beat out from the PPC shooters.

I bought a model 14 new in 1992. Square Butt, 6", full underlug , wood combat grips, target hammer, not drilled or tapped, serial# BHP34XX. Was told they made 2000 of them. Excellent shooting gun with a great trigger! Back in August I took it, along with a couple other guns to a local dealer to put up for sale. He put it up on a Sunday afternoon and it sold almost immediately for $1300! It did have the original box,paper work and tools, but I was still surprised it brought that much!

That doesn't surprise me. I paid a little over 1100.00 for mine. It has the box too.
