I thought the model 59 was made in the early-mid 1970's. Is this the model you have and do you mean it has been fired very little? I also seem to remember they had some functioning problems and many were upgraded by S&W (no charge) with different extractors, springs and magazine followers. The upgraded extractors should have a punch mark on the flat face at the front of the extractor. If your pistol extractor is not punch marked, it hasn't been upgraded.
