    Default S&W 5906

    Anyone have experience with the S&W 5906? Good, bad?

    I have a 4006, which is the same gun but chambered in 40S&W and I absolutely love it.

    Easiest slide to rack ever, shoots soft for the caliber, looks great. The only complaint I'd have is that it's a lad large for me, but I keep it at home or take it the range only.

    Was a carry gun for 100's of different police departments. Excellent Gen 3 S&W weapon. Can't go wrong.

    I already have a 4506,1006, and a 4006. Just waiting on one to pop up at my LGS to finish off the collection.

    They certainly have their following which reflects their resale value. I was surprised at the high trade in I received from a gun store on my clean 6906.

    I have a good deal of rounds down range on my buddy's 6906, it's a really nice shooting gun. He's had it for many years and never had any trouble with it. Unless you are getting a deal on it or really want it, I personally can't see spending the cash over a Glock19 (or the like) since they are somewhat comparable in size but with less capacity with the smith. I've only shot the alloy version, so I can't comment on the weights vs. a Glock. I'm sure the figures are out there..... The 6906 was relatively light from what I remember.

    This is true of the few examples I've seen for sale. The same guy that has the 6906 told me to keep an eye out as he would like another or a variant. I found a few 3rd gen Smiths here and there, semi beat 5906s were still around $300 at a few LGS.

    Can't beat those Gen 3 Smith and Wesson's! If it's in great shape and the price is right - I'd jump on it. $375-$425 is about average from what I have seen. Less than $375 in great shape buy quickly

    I am about to sell my 6906. Outstanding pistol and I would keep it but I am more into rifles.

    I never really cared for the alloy series of guns. Not that they were bad in any way but there is something about a full steel gun that just makes it more desirable.
