    Default 659 Wandered In

    659 transition model. For all intents and purposes itís a 5906. My limited research has indicated there were a 120 of these produced.

    Why yes, yes I did. Very informal, but at 7 yards 5 rounds went into one hole.

    Thanks, i kinda like these pistols, and have had good luck with them. The first five years of CHL, I carried a 6906 and it was a good shooter. I now carry a G19 with Trijicon but if I had to go back there would be no problem.

    I really miss S&W metal semi-automatics. Many of my best memories involve a 4506, 649, and 14” 870. The 4506 was amazing. Congratulations on your find.

    Enjoy your purchase.
    Yea, though I walk through the valley, in the shadow of death, I shall fear no evil, for I graduated from Suarez International's Ultimate Combat Skills Course.

    Fantastic find. Another fan of those guns here, they fit my hand surprisingly well and I shoot them better than a lot of other platforms.

    Kind of interesting, there were Interim Models and Pilot Models. The boxes were labeled "6590". There were about 150 Interim guns and 300 Pilot guns before the complete swtich to the 3rd Gen 5906.

    I remember "back in the day" S&W was The Gun of the Week Club, offering all types of guns with features galore. Double action, DAO, SAO, decockers, you name it. My favorite was supposedly contracted for a California LEO ... had both a slide mounted safety/decocker and a SIG-type decocker. Never saw any hit the market. Ridiculous, probably, but it would be fun to have one as an example of Design by Committee Theory.
