From inactive reserve duty in the Carolinas comes this very attractive specimen of a rare Smith & Wesson pistol. This model 4553TSW, earlier variant, was manufactured from 1997 until 1999 only, with only one subsequent run of rail equipped variants in 2000 – 2002. From this specimen’s 8124 order code, it left the assembly line at Smith & Wesson on May 4, 1998. Manufacturer sku is 104560. Type is Double Action Only lightweight compact centerfire semi automatic pistol. It has a firing pin safety to guard against firing if it is dropped; and has a magazine safety so that it will not fire at all with the magazine removed. Construction is stainless steel slide, barrel, and parts with anodized .305 smooth faced combat trigger, anodized .260 semi-bobbed hammer, and black Novak Lo-Carry dovetailed fixed rear sight with matching dovetailed front sight, completing a 3 dot system with a 5 3/4 inch sight radius. Barrel is 3 3/4 inch collared muzzle, with full length stainless guide rod. Frame is coated white alloy, round faced trigger guard with checkered serration grip frame front strap and straight mainspring housing contoured one piece black polymer grip. Overall length is 7 inches from the muzzle to the grip frame strut, with 5 inches of height from the top of the rear sight to the magazine’s floorplate. Chambering, of course, is .45 ACP, and this pistol has both factory stainless 6 shot magazines, 6+1 capacity. Slide thickness measures .985 inch, and weight empty is 28.6 ounces. This pistol is in its original blue hinged flat box with instruction manual, laser engraving brochure, inspector’s ticket, Master Trigger lock and its manual with one key; both factory magazines; and a never executed blue factory registration card. Surface detractions are minimal, principally small scours on the upper left hand edge of the slide’s rear face. Apart from that, there is only faint operation buffing to the barrel surface. We rate it as Excellent Condition, 90 to 95 percent vicinity by our estimate, but photos ought to suffice for our distinguished shoppers to judge finish grade for themselves. We estimate that this pistol has been fired fewer than 200 rounds, partly because the issuing department had its label marked, Firing Pin Removed, at some point. Bore, chamber, and mechanism are all bright and clean, and the firing pin is very much intact. Last replacement pricing on this pistol was upwards of $800, and that was over ten years ago. We’re offering the 4553TSW in the photos, complete with its lock, blue case, papers, and both magazines for only $ 739.00.
