Default My metal-framed S&W autos - A pictorial essay

Hello all, while stuck inside due to the coronavirus epidemic (even cancelled a range trip today, UGH!), I decided to go into the safe and make some gun porn. I assembled all of the metal-framed S&W autos I've accumulated over the years and realized I have examples of all three generations. The first ones I acquired were first generation, and I have gone from there. I have found quite a few over the last 5 or so years. BTW, no offense is intended to M&P owners. This thread is not an attempt to bash the current M&P series, but to appreciate the past and a great design that is no longer made. I happen to own an M&P in .45. They are an excellent platform too. I hope you enjoy looking especially if you are stuck inside:

FIRST GENERATION

Here's the one that started it all for me, a model 59 made in 1977 that I scored for $199 OTD about 6-7 years ago. Has box and spare mag.


Next, I picked up a model 39-2 in nickel. Made in 1975, it has blued hammer, trigger and controls. Has box and extra mag.


The rest of my collection I will present by generation and not in order of acquisition.

SECOND GENERATION

Model 469, the original "Mini" first year of production from 1983, no box but has extra mag:


Model 659, made 1987, has optional adjustable rear sight and ambi decocker/safety:


THIRD GENERATION

Model 6906, 1991, has box, with optional factory Trijicon Night Sights:


Model 5906, 1997, has ambi decocker


Model 910S, 2004, has original box & papers, came with stupid 10 round crime bill plugged magazine


Model 457, 45 ACP, 2007, only pistol in my collection not chambered in 9mm. No box, but as new. I have found that for some reason, calibers other than 9mm don't show up as much.

Good lookin’ hardware! I’d yank the Hogue off that 5906 if it were mine.

I have bunch of those 10 round neutered ban magzines you spoke of and what I can say is: they are great for target practice and I take them to the range.

I agree with you completely. That's exactly what I do with the 10 rounders. I've got a couple, and I just use them as shooters too.
