Questions about a Model 5924
 
I'm finding it hard to get a lot of information on it so I was hoping to get some help from you guys! Its hard trying to learn the difference in my 5924 to the rest of the 5900 series. I understand that its an 5903 just blued, but will all the accessories for the 5903 fit mine? Like holsters, grips, and mags. Every place I look at to purchase items mentioned, it never gives my model as a choice. My decocker is located on the frame but from the looks of other 5900's they are all located on their slides. Just looking for a little help. Thanks in advance fellas!!

You may want to determine if your pistol was affected by this recall -

SMITH & WESSON
MODEL 1026, 1076, 4526, 4536, 4576, 5924,
5926, 6924 and 6926 PISTOLS

RECALL: Models affected have frame mounted decocking levers.

Other model Smith & Wesson pistols are not affected by this advisory.

We have determined that it is possible for a Smith & Wesson Third Generation 9mm, 10mm and .45 ACP pistol with a frame-mounted decocking lever to malfunction so as to make the pistol inoperable.

In order to safeguard our customers from the possibility of such a malfunction, Smith & Wesson will inspect and, if necessary, modify these pistols free of charge. Owners of Smith & Wesson 9mm, 10mm and .45 ACP pistols featuring a frame-mounted decocking lever with model numbers listed above, and which do not have two dots stamped on the frame underneath the decocking lever (when the lever is depressed) should send their pistols and accompanying magazines to Smith & Wesson for a no-charge inspection.

Please send your pistol and magazines to:

Smith & Wesson
2100 Roosevelt Avenue
Springfield, MA 01102-2208
Attn: Service Department-DL

If you have any questions regarding this product advisory, please call 800-331-0852 ext. 211.

While we have your pistol, our armorers will stamp your pistol with two dots under the decocking lever, and give your pistol an ultrasonic cleaning and full lubrication (a $25.00 value) at no charge.

We apologize for this inconvenience. Smith & Wesson remains committed to building the safest, most reliable and finest-performing firearms possible.

The reason for the lack of information is simply they are a very low production model that was not made very long, or in any substantial number.....to answer your specific questions, holsters are a crapshoot, you either need to find ones made for your specific model, due to the frame mounted decocker, or actually try them. The grips are unique to these frame mounted decocker models, other 5900 series grips will not fit. Magazines are interchangeable, however. Any 5900 series mags will work.

Never mind, I got the model number wrong.

Thanks guys! I'll look at when I get time. Thanks for the input on the holsters!!

Wish I could find a 6924/26. I like the SIG-style decock lever.

Ok finally got a look at the gun and there are already two little dots under the decocker lever. I havent had time to shoot this gun yet and Im really curious how this decocker lever works. Never used a gun with this on it. Suppose to get down right cold this weekend in Southern Indiana, so maybe the range will have some open space!!

The frame mounted decocker is a great feature in my opinion. It allows you to safely drop the hammer, without having the safety automatically activated (in none of the xxx6 model guns have an active safety). Also, when you use the decocker, the hammer falls to a half cocked position, which gives you a shorter DA trigger pull.

Enjoy!!!
