The TEP serial number prefix, to the best of our knowledge, dates manufacture of this 5903 to some time late in 1989, only the second year of production 5903 for law enforcement only, before it was even officially marketed. The reason for that is visible on the right side of the frame forward of the type one square trigger guard: Atlanta Police. This was a special order pistol for APD with no hammer spur, even though it is traditional double action with decocking lock-down ambidextrous safety. From a rest position, the first shot is a long double action pull, then all subsequent shots are single action with a short pull with the hammer standing cocked. Both its magazines are recent production high capacity, but we will sub original pre-ban 14 rounders for New York civilian buyers or anyone else who wants them. Weight empty is a light 28 ounces, more pleasant to carry than its steel frame sibling the 5906. This pistol has only moderate amounts of holster and carry buffing on its surfaces. It has light and faint but extensive buffing on its slide, and minimal wear to the flange behind the hammer on the grip frame, and similar on the trigger guard edges. We rate this pistol as a strong Very Good, around 85 percent finishwise. Photos, however, should suffice for prospective owners to judge finish grade for themselves. This pistol is Excellent mechanically. Bushing contact buffing on the forward barrel surface is only moderate, and the bore, chamber, and mechanism are all bright, clean, and excellent. Note the 1980s period Satin Stainless hammer and trigger. Sights are period Novak 3 Dot, night sights with no significant luminosity remaining. This pistol is not only eminently serviceable, it is also collectable since it is a very early, pre-catalogued variant of the 5903 in a very traditional configuration. We are including a new factory Smith & Wesson blue case. We're offering it for only $ 359.95

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.
