Default S&W 645... Input?

I am looking at picking up a S&W 645. I do NOT know much about the weapon. I can get it for $350 with an Optima red dot (ex-competition weapon). IS that a good price? What isues were has with that weapon? Holsters easy to come by? Anyone conceal carry a Service model on a daily?

I had one some time ago. Big gun, at least as big as a full-size 1911 for sure. Good shooter and very reliable. Mags are expensive and as far as holsters go they may be tough to find. I wouldn't want to carry one around all day...

The 645 was the full size, 2nd generation pistol Smith produced primarily for the LE market. The 4506 replaced it.
Pros - Accurate, reliable, easy to maintain.
Cons - Very large, heavy, sights are just OK, grip frame ugly (IMHO), original mags hard to find, sharp edges, hammer bites larger hands, ambi-safety screwed together ( the screw can back out).

I believe the 4506 mags will work. If you have a plastic base pad, you have a 4506 mag. If you have a steel base plate (with or without a rubber bumper) you have a 645 mag. 645 mags work fine in my 4506, but you cannot install the plastic base pad on the 645 mag and expect it to fully seat.

The safety/decocker assembly from a 4506 will fit and correct the screw problem.
