Is it a blue steel slide and frame? And takes a 14, 15 or 17rd magazine? If so it's pretty much the cheaper version of the very rare all blue steel 5905. I have the common all SS 5906, which otherwise is the same as the 5905.

The slide is more of a gray. The frame is definitely an alloy.

Ah ok, alloy frame. Sounds like hot loads have been run through it or a very high round count. If no cracking above the trigger it might still be a decent gun.

Yeah don't see any cracks (not using a loop or anything) I'm sure it shoots fine but I can honestly say I hate the design.

I have to put the back end of the frame on a table and lean on it to push the pins down so I can work the slide back on. That's not right. I think I'm gonna gut the thing and go through it before he gets it back.

Yeah MM, the last lever (the shortest one) is pretty hard to push down enough for the slide to clear it. Sounds like yours is harder than most. It does sound like this gun needs a good cleaning.

Did your father get it a long time ago or recently? Just wondering if he knows more of the story.

I'm sure he has never had it apart. I would assume he got it within the last 5 years as he just did his first renewal (to my knowledge). I'm currently holding all of his firearms for him as he can't have them in his residence at the moment. Long story.
I plan to go through all of them as a surprise.
