    I just picked up my first 3rd gen Smith and Wesson pistol, an all stainless 5906 9mm. Pretty hefty, built like a rock but very accurate. About to disassemble this weekend and polish several internal parts for a lighter and smoother trigger pull. Just put on a new set of Hogue grip panels and it feels great. Very happy with this pistol!

    They just have a cool factor for me. I'll be removing the magazine disconnect safety when I disassemble, that feature is annoying for me. I'd like to try this in USPSA Production class this year.

    Congrats on a great pistol.

    I own several 3rd gen Smiths and the 5906 is probably my favorite...

    Like I told you on PM a really clean one just sold by me at a LGS. I was tempted for a duplicate.

    Very nice!
    I had a 5906 that was formerly a duty gun a few years ago. It was a little beat up but would shoot fantastic . Like almost all of my previous guns I regret selling it.:embarassed:
    Keep yours.

    Had one as a duty weapon years ago. Got pretty heavy to tote around on 12-hr shifts, but it was built like a tank.

    It was already heavily used when issued to me, but it never let me down. Put a lot of rounds though it during training and don’t remember ever having a malfunction.

    Even though it would have no practical use for me, I’d love to have a 5906 just for old time’s sake.

    I can't speak for the OP, but I got no e for $500 OTD, IRRC. It's like brand new. No box though...

    I like that gun. It reminds me of action movies from the 80's/early 90's (when the ubiquitous Beretta 92 wasn't hogging the limelight, that is.)

    Very nice! A couple weeks ago I just picked up a 3906, it's seldom seen single stack brother. It was also my first 3rd gen Smith.

    Pat, I actually traded an old Glock 19 for it. These are getting harder to come by so I figured I'd get it while I could. Traded a gentleman that lived here locally in the Dayton area, no shipping or FFL's involved. I figure I can always buy another 19 and 5906's are not near as common to find these days.

    Mark at summitgunbroker.com has/had some very recently. $425 with 2 15 round magazines. Police trade in's I assume?

    I haven't shot this with the Hogue's yet but I heard they absorb some felt recoil. They're comfortable but definitely add some thickness to the grip. I have smaller hands but it's still not thick enough to feel uncomfortable for me.

    There's not much recoil as it is. It's a heavy, all steel 9mm.
