Default S&W semi-auto model designations?

Could we get a sticky on what each of S&W's semi-auto numerical designations means?

It would be a handy reference -- both for newcomers to the Smith line and for geezers with slip-sliding memories...

For instance, not to admit to geezer-hood, but sometimes I forget the difference between a 4553 and a 4556.

Frame size and barrel length -- as well as other features -- would be great. For instance, is a 4516 the same frame size as a 4553?

Someone most likely already has these put together on a PDF file -- and it would be a simple matter to post it for ready-reference at the top.

Muchos gracias!
