Where can I find a chart with the specs for the 6906 and 3913? weight, width, height, etc?

The 6906 weighs about 26 ounces and the 3913 weighs about 25 ounces. The 6906 has a grip thickness of about 1.26" compared to the 3913 1.06". The 3913 is 6.875" LOA. I think that you will find that the most significant difference is the thickness of the grip.

Default Until Fastbolt says otherwise,

As far as I can tell, parts for the slide, including barrel and slide are the same product for 3913 and the 6906.

I have both and have been trying for years to decide which is the better of the two for my uses. Maybe in a couple of more years I will have arrived at a definitive conclusion. Until then, more and more field testing.

Until conclusion of this rigorous testing, I am carrying a very scuffed up and well used 908 as a daily carry gun. Sometimes I succumb to dark forces and carry one of my Austrian imports.

Well, I have 'em both (three actually, 3913/3913LS & 6906) and I'll be happy to share my perspective with you..

If you need a firearm for home protection, or even if a wider 9mm pistol works for you for cc then the 6906 is the winner, no question.

I use the 15rd 5906 mags w/the S&W adapter and the 6906 offers a capacity of 15+1 (vs standard 12+1) and the "feel" of the 6906 w/the larger mag/adapter is actually better than w/the standard mag, (for me).

If you want "thin" for daily cc, and limited capacity is no problem then the 3913 or 3913LS would be MY preferred choice between the two.

I actually find the LS TOO thin for my hands, and my cc choice is a CS9. (or CS45), but my wife loves the sucker and won't let me part with it.... Go figure?

All three are excellent, absolutely reliable and self defense accurate choices.

IMO all 3rd gen Smiths are fine pistols, underrated, under appreciated, and fantastic bargains in today's market.

If I were going to buy one or the other I'd opt for a nice 6906 first, then if you were not completely satisfied save up for a 3913 (or LS), then you have the best of both worlds.

Just personal opinion, no offense to those who might disagree..


Best Wishes,

Jesse

Thanks for the info. I actually just sold a mint 3913 for a new 6906. If the only difference is the grip, and the grip sticks out of my pants anyway, I'd rather have more rounds. Where do you get the adapters for the 5906 mags? I have 4 on the way.

dbm:

S&W sells em' - 1-800-331-0852 for sure, probably "Brownell's, "Midway", perhaps "Cheaper than dirt"

They fit perfectly, work perfectly, look great, and you get three Xtra rounds for free...

Best Wishes,

Jesse

Don't see them listed on Midway's, or Brownells websites. I don't see them listed on S&W's site either. I wonder if I'm stuck with them sticking out.

The extenders are on the parts list. They are a bit hard to find if you don't get the name right.

Call S&W at 1-800-331-0852. You want part no. 242120000 Grip Plus 2 ButtPlate.
I think they cost $9 or $10 plus shipping.
You might order a few and some springs to even out the shipping cost.
They may or may not be on backorder. Mine were, but were shipped out shortly after I ordered them a couple of months ago.

I actually ordered them as an experiment for a PPC extended magwell & 59 series 20 round mags, but I will use them on the 15 round mags as well.

The 3913 grip is just a bit slim for me as well even with Hogues. The CS9 fits a little better. I have a beater 6906 on the way to see if that will work for me as well.

Thanks for your perspective. If everyone would send me a couple of hundred 9mm rounds, I could hurry and conclude testing. Maybe my results would match yours LOL.

Actually, MY 6906 has a better single and double action trigger than the 908, CS9, or 3913. However the others have triggers more than adequate for defensive uses.
