In the Notable Threads section of the Semi-Autos section, there is a sticky called the Complete Third Gen Model List. It's a great reference. Created by Forum member skjos, it is about as complete a list of Third Gens as you are likely to find anywhere. A separate list catalogs the Performance Center Third Gens.

There's a 5946TSW listed there with a black melonite finish and 5946TSW marked on the frame. It's listed as a Royal Canadian Mounted Police pistol.

I've posted mine numerous times.

No one seems to know much about them.

As a matter of fact, one of my threads with pictures is the first result at the bottom of the page.

I was aware of the 5906 "Modelo Militar" having the Melonite finish, and I think S&W also offered a .45ACP in the same finish. Here is the thread on the 5906, it may answer some questions:

Default There's always this one

I believe we've decided there were 6 or 8 made and documented.




Definitely a M5946
Definitely Melonite
TSW - ?? Not sure it matters as it's pretty cool as-is.

Thank you all who replied,I appreciate it. The pistol in question only has 1 slot for the rail and the rail is not part of the frame. I did look in S&W catalog it lists 4 versions of the 5946tsw but does not give specifics. 3 out of the 4 are affiliated with RCMP if I was reading it correctly.
