Very pleased to have run across one in such great condition.

Very nice! Early 5904 grips were subject to a recall. If your grips have no dimple on the bottom, S&W owes you an updated grip if they have them in stock.

Very nice pick up, especially with the extra magazines. Edit the picture and post up some more.

The grips do not have the divot. Everything seems OK with them. I will see what S&W says. I'm guessing they are not in stock as I have read on other threads about the recall. But I will give them a try.

Try this again.

Guessing it is an early model. I have not found a "Serial number/ date of manufacture" thread yet. I'll ask when I call about the grips. The mag followers are black and they still hold 15 rounds. I'll be taking them apart to see if they have been modified. I thought the 15 rounders were orange.

Grip recall........

SMITH & WESSON
MODEL 3904, 3906, 3913, 3913LS, 3914, 3914LS,
1006, 1066,
4506, 4516, 4516-1,
5903, 5904, 5906, 5946,
6904, 6906 & 6946, PISTOLS

RECALL: Smith & Wesson has shipped over 300,000 Third generation Pistols. We have had a very small number or reports where a dropped pistol resulted in a broken grip resulting in a failure to fire by releasing mainspring tension. Resultant testing and review have shown that a pistol dropped at a specific angle can cause a fracture of the grip.

As a result of these occurrences and our testing, we have made a change in the grip material to a thermoplastic alloy of increased durability. This new material, which is now being used on all current production models, can be identified by a dimple on the bottom of the grip, next to the large opening. Additionally, the blue product box has a green dot sticker on the label end.

We believe it unlikely that you will experience any problem with your original grips. However, in order to safeguard our customers from the possibility of such a malfunction, we will make available, free of charge, an easily installed replacement grip. Please inspect your pistol and if you have a model listed below that does not have a small dimple next to the large opening, please write us including your model and serial number or call 800-338-2466. If you prefer, you can send your pistol to a Smith & Wesson Warranty Station where we will replace the grip for you.

Models Affected:

3904, 3906, 3913, 3913LS, 3914, 3914LS, 1006, 1066, 4506, 4516, 4516-1, 5903, 5904, 5906, 5946, 6904, 6906 & 6946

Smith & Wesson's development process is a continuing one. We are constantly striving both to develop new products and improve existing products. We are committed to building the safest, most reliable, finest performing firearms possible.

Fantastic find! The 5904 was my 2nd gun purchase. I paired it with a 4" DW .357, one for HD and the other for carry. I shot my first USPSA match with the 5904. Straight grips are available if you like flat MSH. FYI.

I've wanted a 5904 since 1992 when I started working armed security PT. Saw and handled one and loved it! Just couldn't afford it at the time. Now I have just purchased one with Novaks and round trigger guard. Always Liked the blue/black finish over the stainless 5903 but would have gotten one then as well.

I cannot abide those winged adjustable sights and dislike the heavy all steel xx05 and xx06 models. I might be a bit picky!

Nice looking firearms. I wish my 5903 looked as good as your 5904, but it puts 9mm rounds down range.
