Fair enough. A lot of people think the 910 and 915 are the same pistols when they are not. They are definitely not everyone's cup of tea. Here's my other pistol, a 469:

Very nice

I like the 469 model and many others quite a bit.

Yeah, Smith cheapened the 915 a little further when they changed the name to 910 during the magazine ban.

Are worried about finding replacement parts with these discontinued guns?

Most the guns I own are discontinued, so not really...

I am and considered selling almost all my 2nd and 3rd Generation metal frame S&Ws' and replace them with a few Sigs since parts for Sigs are more available. I'd keep my S$Ws' in 10MM since Sig doesn't make one, but Haven't gotten around to doing it yet. Maybe 3D Printers will provide use with replacement parts in the future.

Is there a risk that S&W will stop making replacement parts? I want to keep mine.

I'm sure eventually. I'm not sure if they make them now, but they may have plenty in stock.

I like the lines! What a beauty.

I only own S&W revolvers...

Is this their signature pistol (pre-polymer)?

I'm not sure about that. S&W had many great 1st, 2nd, and 3rd gen pistols. The 5906 was certainly one of the most popular 3rd gens.

They quit making them after Glock took their market share!

I believe so, but I'm not 100% certain.

So far, everything is still available from S&W. I've stocked up on some of the smaller pins and springs, just in case.

I think the 3rd gen S&W autos are the finest pistols made. My 5906 has less than 100 rounds through it. I have 2 4506-(0), one bought new when they first hit the market and another police trade-in that went back the S&W for a trigger bar replacement. The one, bought new has several thousand rounds, through it, but really doesn't show any wear. They're tough guns. I am still looking for a 4006.
