Well, if you haven't bought them all up I'd like a 2nd Gen ?39 or 3rd Gen 39?? to hang out with my 39-2.
Too bad S&W went polymer. =D>

I agree on the polymer bit. Just like the feel of the alloy/aluminum/ss better. I do know where a 3914 is. Bit rough though.

3914, 4014, 5906, Daewoo DP51c [ hey, it takes 6906 mags, so it counts! ] 4513TSW, and not pictured is a 6904 i just picked up and modified the Kel-Tec P11 15rd mag adapter/spacer so the 15rd mags fit nice. In the past i have owned a 4006 and a couple of 39's that i wish i still had..... jim
P.S. Cobra, i would guess you are glad that baby came with 4 mags.... i bet they are hard to find and expensive!

Hey that looks almost like my bunch: 6906, 5906, 5906TSW, 4506-1, CS45, and the latest 4513TSW.
I am glad for the extra two as most mags I've seen for it are $45-$50 each. Only wish it had original box.

This is a DAO which from what I can find seems to have been were made specifically for NYPD. Think I'll leave it.

If i remember right from a guy posting on the Smith&Wesson Forum, NYPD made that a requirement starting sometime in the '80's or '90's...... that's why J&G Sales had all those NYPD DAO model 10's for years. I lettered one of the Model 39's i had about 15yrs ago [ non-factory, red-ramp front sight and ambi-safety ] and it came from JJ Jovino in New York City, which is where most NYPD got their guns back in the '70's. They used to have to buy their own and were re-imbursed. I would leave it alone myself, some people just hate the DAO 3rd gens. The rare ones are the 3rd Gens with the Sig-style decocker..... only seen them on the web once in a while, but maybe i'll run across one someday!

Why is that once I buy one they start popping out of the woodwork. Now see where the guy I bought the 4513 from has a NM 3913 for sale [smilie=012.gif]

Sweet gun, sir. Nothing like a real metal S&W.

I think pharmer reported there were 5906 and 3906 models at the Lakeland show. 3906 is full size but at 349 I'd love a 5906. Just all tapped out now.

Last time I looked CDNN had some 5906 police trade ins. I think it is a sexy pistol! I am not sure if has a mag safety since it was a leo pistol.

I believe the LEO guns still have the mag safety.
A lot of LEO Depts. considered it a good thing to have in the case of a BG trying to wrestle away the cops gun....he could hit the mag release and render the gun inoperable.
A lot of people hate mag releases but for me, as long as they do not effect the trigger pull I am fine with it.
A Browning Hi-Power is a pistol that's trigger benefits greatly by removing the mag safety. The S&W version has no effect on the trigger.

I can't speak on the CS9 but my CS45 is a nice shooter. For me it sometimes comes down to which I could replace easier if I wanted to. Not sure about the airweight but I know they aren't making CS9s anymore.
