Default 4506 Goodness

Stopped at a local gun shop today and the owner was taking pictures of a "big" S&W Auto; big like my 1026 big!

After I examined what is to be my next new to me firearm, I completed a 4473 only to find that NICS was down nationwide! So yesterday I went to pick up my new 4506! No box and only one magazine. Pretty clean condition; Talked them down to $600 plus tax OTD.

After picking it up I went to the range and shot 30 rounds through it. What's nice to me about a used handgun is it's broken in! Looking over this one it hasn't been fired a lot though!

You got a super early 4506, it is pre-Novak and the magazine that came with it appears to be a 645/745 magazine with a plastic or rubber pad glued on to the baseplate.

Great looking pistol!

I believe the 4506 is one of the best 45ACP handguns made. Everyone that has tried it, likes shooting mine. congratulations on your find.

Nice 4506! Congrats!

The 4506 is my favorite 5 inch 45. Accurate, bet your life reliable and looks good doing all that. Enjoy yours! Regards 18DAI

Congrats. Nice find!

Looks fresh but remember those springs might be 27 years old. Give it a re-fresh with some new recoil, XP firing pin, & mainsprings from Wolff. Then you're good for years to come.

Everybody needs at least one 4506.
