Beginning in 1988, many of us became familiar with Smith & Wesson's new numbering system for its metal frame auto pistols, descendants of its time-honored 39 and 59 series. The very popular 669, compact descendant of the Devel Custom Mini, begot, as the KJV Bible says, the best known variant, the 6906, which was stainless and alloy, and should have been 6903, not 6906. This one, like wise, the double-action-only descendant of the excellent little 669, should have been numbered 6943. It is a lightweight alloy frame with stainless steel slide and parts, and only weighs in at 26.5 ounces empty. The third digit of the number is crucial on this one, the 4, that signifies full time double action. On none of the metal frames was this variation more appropriate than on the 6900 type. These are dimensionally compact pistols but they have double-stacked magazine wells; that is, they will operate with even the huge 20 round magazines that S&W marketed for its 5900. This 6946, like its better known sibling, will readily accept any 59 or 5900 magazine, and we are including one with a custom Precision brand adapter sleeve. Even though it was a cutting-edge state-of-the-art pistol at its inception some 25 years ago, the 6900s are now traditional classics, seldom found, and much searched after. This double action only variant only has two of the three traditional safeties. It has a firing pin safety to guard against accidental discharge if the pistol is dropped, and a magazine safety that renders the pistol inoperable even if there is a live round in the barrel. Barrel length is 3 1/2 inches, but these outshot many of their bigger ancestors for accuracy due to the distinctive S&W Third Generation muzzle configuration that insured consistent bushing lockup shot after shot. Hammer and trigger are traditional classic Smith & Wesson Satin Stainless, a .260 bobbed hammer and .304 smooth combat trigger. Double action trigger pull is smooth and consistent, about 12 pounds of pressure through a short 11/16 inch trigger pull. These are, as they were intended, concealable, light, compact combat pistols where officers or carry permittees have expertise in drawing and on-target firing from a concealed position. Maximum overall length from the muzzle to the end of the grip frame beavertail area is just under 7 inches; maximum height is 5 1/2 inches from rear sight to end of magazine finger rest; and the maximum thickness is 1 1/8 inches, about the length of a 9mm cartridge. This specimen was manufactured in 1992 from its serial number prefix. Production only ran from 1991 through 1998. This pistol has been bead-blast refinished by our friends at DGC Custom Gunsmithing, and its principal surface detractions will be around the edges of the alloy frame where the original coating did not survive. Bore, chamber, and mechanism are all bright, clean, and excellent. Pistol will come with its original issue 12 round Pre-Ban Magazine as well as the high capacity 15 rounder. Grips are new replacement Hogue 6900 with finger grooves. We're offering this fine, solid, compact Smith & Wesson 9mm for only $ 399.95. Not transferable to civilians in California, D.C., or Massachusetts. Civilian buyers in Chicago, Hawaii, New York, Toledo OH, or other jurisdictions with similar civilian magazine restrictions will receive 10 round mags, either blue Mec-Gar or S&W Stainless. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Handguns: $15 flat fee shipping to the lower 48 states; $20 to Alaska, Hawaii or Puerto Rico, USPS Priority Mail, insured with Delivery Confirmation.

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.
