Default S&w 915

Looking into buying one, anything I need to know before I buy?

How to read a manual, how to safely shoot.

Never liked the safety/decock on the slide. It always interfered when racking slide. Outside of that it was a nice pistol.

S&W 915 is an economized version of the 5906 but has the aluminum frame. Never handled one but they have a good rep, as do all of the third generation versions of the Model 39/59. I guess it all depends on the price and the condition of the gun you're looking at. And considering price, have you looked at the 5906 and alloy framed 6906? They go for $300-$350 at CDNN (LE trade-in) and other places.
