Default S&W Model 4006 Stamping

Hi:
I have a Model 4006 .40 Serial #TF1112 that on the right side of the frame, slide and barrel is stamped " CENTRAL #1"

The attached photo shows the stamping. The stamping appear to be profession- Factory ??

Anyone have any idea what this stamp is ?

Thank you,
Jimmy

Probably a law enforcement department marking.

What you got there is a 4006 that was issued to the California highway patrol from 1990 to 2006 and that is 1 of 9736. During that time each of the 8 divisions had what is call " fots trucks" where officers would go and shoot a laser gun at a screen. So, you have a fots gun that was issued to central division

FYI, I just purchase several 4006 TSW CHP’s. They all have CHP Engraved on the left side.
