Default 59xx Barrel Question

Looking at a 5946 that may or may not have a replacement barrel. All 5906 I have seen are marked 9mm and Parabellum below. The 5946 has only 9mm and in significantly larger lettering. See Pictures

Sounds like it is a TSW barrel.

Thanks - Gun not marked TSW - what are differences in TSW barrel other than matched parts? Can you put TSW barrel in non-TSW gun?

It is my understanding that S&W changed the marking on 9mm barrels when they made a slight change to the chamber dimensions.

Is is definitely NOT a TSW barrel and no, 5906 and 5906TSW barrels are NOT interchangeable because the 5906TSW uses the larger, 40 s&w barrel's bushing.

Other differences are a loaded chamber indicator view hole and steeper angled barrel cam lugs on the TSW model.

Have searched a number of 5904 5906 5946 and all pictures i can find are marked like 5906 “9mm” over “Parabellum”

Any idea whether there are aftermarket barrels for 5906 non TSW guns?

Your question has been answered by another member concerning barrel stamps . My late model 5906 is stamped Parabellum and have seen 9MM . No 5906 barrels available unless maybe Ebay or other. 5906 and TSW are complete different barrels will not interchange
