Default Acquired a Model 4513TSW (pre-rail) tonite

Won this 4513TSW (pre-rail) tonight at auction. I was able to check it out a few weeks ago and it's in fine condition. It will go nicely with my 4586 and 4516-1. My winning bid was $500. It comes with three S&W magazines and the carrying case. I'll be getting it tomorrow, but here a few photos courtesy of the auction company. I'm getting hooked on the 3rd Gen autos.

Very nice! I just recently acquired a 4006TSW CHP myself, and I love it.

Nice package and price for 3 mags and the case. I have had a few of them and they are great little .45s. Enjoy. One thing is for sure...if you don't like it for some reason they sell quickly!!!

Good deal on a great carry 45! Congrats!

The 4513TSW is my favorite pistol and 45 carry gun. Enjoy yours! Regards 18DAI

Congratulations! If this wasn't quite a screaming deal, it's certainly a shouting-very-loudly one!

Any time you can get a Third Gen 45 with three mags and the case for five bills, it's been a good day.

Now go out and shoot that fine 45!

That is a very good deal on a pretty scarce firearm. About two years ago I paid $600.00 for an ANIB pre rail 3953TSW, so I think you did very well.

Any of the pre rail TSW pistols are rare, so finding one at a good price is a great score.

I finally got it the range yesterday with three boxes of Speer Lawman 230 grain FMJ. I own a 4516-1 which is an all steel frame. I was curious how the 4513TSW would handle in comparison. That pistol is very soft shooting and seemed to have less muzzle flip than the all steel predecessor (4516); possibly due to the dual recoil spring design. Oh and it's a tack driver. I'm impressed and it's a keeper.

Glad that worked out well for you!

The pre rail 4513TSW was one they really got right. Not much difference in size or weight to a compact 9mm, but in St Peters favorite caliber.

I'm still carrying mine regularly. And will never part with it. Regards 18DAI

The 'soft-shooting' is the part I liked best.

Great catch, good on ya, mate.

This was my 90% of the time carry gun. And I liked it so much I went looking for a 4013TSW and found one. It now shares carry duty. (My other two carry guns are a .45 Shield for pocket carry and a Beretta PX4 in .40 that had a bunch of Langdon work done on it.
