The 3rd generation S&W semi-auto pistol S&W Model 4006 was introduced by Smith & Wesson on January 17, 1990 along with the new .40 S&W cartridge. It is a stainless steel frame and slide double-action, semi-automatic handgun with 4 inch barrel, De-cock/safety and an 11-round staggered-column magazine. It replaced 2nd generation S&W semi-autos and featured a wrap around one piece grip versus standard 2 piece side grips and low profile 3 dot Novak sights. A lightweight aluminum framed S&W 4003 was also produced that weighed 800 grams (29 ounces) and was more comfortable to carry. The 4046 model was a DAO (double action only) pistol. The first 2 digits in the model number indicate caliber. The last digit either a 3 or 6 indicate aluminum or stainless steel frame respectively. Various safety features include a safety lever, drawing the firing pin away from the hammer as well as the inability to fire without a magazine inserted. While a true double-action pistol, the firearm shares the magazine disconnect feature with Browning Hi-Power pistols: it cannot be fired without the magazine in place. This feature was developed to meet the needs of various law enforcement agencies interested in providing another level of safety for their officers.
The Model 4006 has been used by many law enforcement agencies as a standard duty sidearm, including by the California Highway Patrol , California State Parks and Rec. and until recently, the Colorado State Patrol. As of September 2009 California State Parks has retired the venerable 4006 in favor of the lighter and more versatile Smith and Wesson M&P 4
This is a used CHP trade in pistol with adjustable sights and 2 10 round mags, has some holster wear and a few scratches on the grips. Looks like it was carried more than fired. Please note the black mark on the left side is a result of my flash. It is just a slight rub mark from the holster. The flash makes it look black.
