Default S&W 5943 SSV

Hi All was at my local gun shop here in ohio and in his case was this really diffrent looking pistol it was a 2 tone w/black slide model 5943ssv 9mm pistol never see 1 one like it, the gun was as new with orginal box & paperwork 2 mags, he was asking 350 but after a while walked out the door for 300 I know it was a good deal , what can you folks tell me about this pistol. I know it was only made in 1990/91 the ssv model was the top of the line for this pistol, any other info would be appreciated, looking for value or price point on this gun .Thanks

Great deal, IMHO. $300 for a 3rd Gen is a steal, especially a rarer one.

Welcome to the forum.

Either go back & buy that gun asap or tell us where it is, so somebody reading this post can go buy it!

Only 3,277 ever made in 1991!

What Big Lou said. The 5943 Short Slide Variation (SSV) is as good as it gets in 9mm hi cap DAO 3rd gens. Light, great triggers and not that many out there. FNS standard.

When people know what they have and are selling I have seen them go for anywhere between $500-600 on places like AA and GB. More if they are new, less if they are well used. I think you got a great deal, I would have bought it in a heartbeat.

By the way Stumpie, let's see some pics!

SCS&W 3rd Edition, page 317. It also lists price from $650 for ANIB, $450 for Excellent & $350 for very good. These are just guidelines & prices will vary depending on location & demand.

You purchased a neat gun. If you plan on keeping it (I would), shoot it! It's one of S&W best DAO 9mm IMHO. Very sweet trigger.

If you plan on selling it, don't shoot it & put it away in the safe. It will only go up in value. Again congrats on an excellent buy!
