    If I'm remembering correctly, it originally came with the straight grip, and I bought the curved one later.

    You are correct. That it is.

    Had a 1006 a long time ago. Cool pistol, but man that thing was a club.

    It's definitely an ungainly beast.

    Ex-L.E. S&W model 4566.

    Shot it for a year or so and liked it so much I shipped it to Tripp Research to be hard-chromed.

    Pimpilicious when returned.

    4566.

    I wouldn't mind finding a nice 3913 but other than that I just am ho-hum about 3rd Gen Smiths...

    I had a 4553 TSW. Nice gun but I sold it with the warning the only JHP it would reliably feed was the 230 HS. With that round it never choked. It was the only S&W semi I had that problem with.

    Not certain what generation this one is. It is a Smith 659.

    I owned a number if 3rd Gen models when I was younger, but ended up trading them off. I recently picked up a pair of CHP 4006TSW pistols in rather good condition. I'll post photos as soon as I can.

    I would love one of these S&W autos. A Model 39 or a 4505 in particular. I’ve never heard of a single person ever having a malfunction with them. I’m sure it’s happened, but I’ve never heard of it.
