Default 4006

Any opinions on the model 4006 in .40?

A good solid 100% stainless pistol that is built like a tank, and about as wide as one too.

The double stack frame is just too uncomfortable for me because I don't have gorilla paws. I bought a brand spanking new one years ago and shot maybe 10 mag full's of ammo through it. It's been sitting in the safe ever since.

solid performer with a good reputation for being a very reliable pistol.

a bit heavy compared to the newer polymer pistols, but all in all, a very good pistol.

i wouldn't hesitate to buy one.

"High Cap" mags are only 11. If you are in a State that only allows 10 round magazines, it fill the bill well.

As stated, solid pistols. Weak link is the ejector. Some folks force the slide back on after a field strip and break the ejector off. With the slide open, the lever visible throught the ejection port on the lect side is the ejector. It should protrude about 3/8" into the magazine well if it is intact.

My personal preference is to take the factory flat back grips off and replace with the arched standard grips from the 5906 (they are a drop in replacement).

Yes I have, I really liked the feel of it. Too heavy for cc, it does feel solid
