The S&W Model 469 is a semi-automatic pistol, chambered for the 9x19mm Parabellum Cartridge. It is an early model in Smith & Wesson's well-regarded 59-series, envisioned as pistols that could be easily concealed, but possessed sufficient firepower to serve as service weapons as well. It was a traditional double-action weapon with a 3.5-inch barrel, equipped with a slide-mounted safety/decocker. Magazine capacity was 12 rounds. It was also able to accept the 59 series magazines which hold 15 rounds. When Smith & Wesson introduced its "third-generation" series of semi-automatic pistols, several similar pistols succeeded the Model 469.
