Congrats! Nice looking pistol!
My comment is I like it, have several NON performance center third gens. When I got into hand gunning, all the PD's had these pistols thus they are permanently objects of my desire.
You got a GREAT one.
Very nice, Willie
The old PC autos are incredibly good. I actually have another one coming in soon, which is based on the 5906.
I have seen a few of these at a local range. I really liked them but the ones I saw were in BAD shape. I wouldn't mind adding one of these to the collection

Very pretty looking.
My 3rd Edition Standard Catalog of Smith and Wesson 2006 page 370 says "Produced in 1997 with small runs still occurring." Wouldn't it be nice to find a new one of those in a gun case.
Congrats, that's a beautiful pistol.
Very nice find - and looks to be in marvelous condition.
I seriously doubt you've seen a few of those. The is a huge difference between that gun and a standard 5906. They just look similar.
Willie is actually understating it, but that is a real fine pistol there.
I own a S&W Performance Center 5906 IDPA as well. Mine is within 30 serial numbers of yours.
The DA trigger is one of the smoothest DA in a TDA pistol that I have ever felt. The SA action is not light (about 5 lbs or so) but it is super crisp and has a stunningly short reset like most 3rd gens. Unlike the standard 5906, I believe the IDPA models do not have a mag disconnect and are decocker only. Also mine was special ordered with a single sided decocker and not with the standard ambi decocker. Fit and finish are like a semi-custom 1911 and not like a standard S&W 5906. The spherical Briley bushing aids in the excellent accuracy. This is an outstanding competition pistol that also makes for an outstanding carry pistol.
I believe that 405 4" DPA series models were made.
That's a damn-fine pistol. Please share with us your review when you take it to the range.
Double checked the Roy Jinks letter for my pistol and Roy confirms the 4" DPA series had 420 made. Mine was shipped in 1998 to the distributor Lew Horton. I believe yours was as well.
Great looking 5906! I recently bought a regular 5906 with adjustable sights and wish that I had not waited so long to get one.
Thanks for the info. It appears IDPA is the only version with FCS, is that you understanding? The Hogue grips mine has are comfortable but too thick, I'll most likely replace them with the curved stock grips.
I have always been on on the fence whether I like the 5906s but the more I see them the more they grow on my. Very nice pistol pictured above, good find!
Great pistol and I just have a regular 5906. Great fine and enjoy shooting it. Frankly I'd rather have your PC 5906 rather than any M&P.
Pete, you would like them. I'll have to bring my standard model to the spring shoot.
I am not sure. The FCS did not come on the standard 5906 nor the later 5906 TSW so I think that the IDPA may be the only version with FCS. Also I like the standard S&W Delrin grips on the 5906. I prefer wood grips on the single stack S&W 3rd gens but the double stacks feel good with the thin Delrin.
Great acquisition! Congrats.
