As early as the 1960s, almost as soon as Smith & Wesson's 39 and 59 series of pistols hit the market, law enforcement specialists began demanding compact variants. The Devel and ASP custom guns gained popularity with federal agents, including the Secret Service, all variants of the S&Ws. It was not until 1983 that Smith & Wesson began paying serious attention to demand for compact autos. The Company's first response was this specimen's immediate ancestor, the Model 469, popularly known simply as the Mini. The 669 in lightweight stainless followed in 1985, and the 6900 series began in 1988, and here is one of the first ones. While our principal commendation of the New Hampshire State Police is for their service and protection to our fellow citizens in the Granite State; a secondary commendation, however, is in order. New England law enforcement was instrumental in developing these refinements, with NHSP having substantial input. Not only the influence; this is an exceptionally well maintained weapon, and it is in its original box with all its papers and both magazines. Serial number prefix on this 6906 is TDF; product code is 104054, and Special Order number is 9248. This is doubtless a first year production 6906 from late 1988 or early 1989, President Reagan's final days in office; and the first type trigger guard was specially designed for officers in New England so that they could fire with gloves on. Note also the pinned-in ambidextrous safety, and non-obtrusive rounded anodized three-doz sights. Hammer is classic satin stainless with 4 serrations; and trigger is first type .365 smooth combat, also in satin stainless. Frame, of course, is specially coated lightweight alloy, and the pistol weighs only 26.5 ounces empty. Curved backstrap one-piece grip matches the anodized sights and high impact magazine finger-rest type floorplate; and note the black follower that only admits 12 round magazine capacity. Substitution of the later variant orange followers ups the capacity to 13+1, and we converted dozens of the black follower magazines in the early 1990s, before the Brady period. These are most emphatically the original pre-ban magazines, something that is of interest to civilian residents of New York. This fine little pistol's distinctive barrel configuration made it so accurate that Smith & Wesson retooled its full size pistols' barrels as well. Barrel, of course, is 3 1/2 inch stainless, and its muzzle configuration made for positive lockup and superb accuracy for many thousands of rounds. Since this pistol is in such good shape, with minimal holster contact buffing; and since its barrel collar area shows minimal bushing contact evidence, we do not believe it has been fired many more than 1,000 rounds; and that is like 1,000 miles on a new car – no rounds at all for these classic S&W third generation metal frame pistols. Holster buffing is minimal; we rate this 6906 as Excellent, since we estimate that no more than 10 percent of its surfaces are affected by any kind of wear. Photos, at any rate, should suffice for prospective owners to judge finish grade for themselves. Own the NHSP 6906 in the photo for only $ 439.95. Not transferable to civilians in California, District of Columbia, or Massachusetts. Chicago civilian buyers will receive two 12 round magazines. Civilian buyers in jurisdictions that restrict 11-15 round magazines will receive two 10 round magazines with the adapter or $ 435 freight paid with no magazines, buyer's call.

Don't let your buddies use your account. Registered user must be the buyer, with his or her own money. Buying firearms and related items for other people can result in felony charges. Don't try, either, to circumvent any law; for example, a California civilian may not buy a high capacity magazine and have it shipped to his brother-in-law in Nevada. That is a felony.
