The 2nd generation Smiths (3 digit model numbers) are easily outclassed by the 3rd generation models. Get a 5906. Superb guns. More reliable. More ergonomic. I regret letting mine get away.

I have several of the 3rd generation S&W and plan on keeping SOME of them. I am going to sell two or three of them. I like them A LOT!!!

not familiar with the M659, but if it's like the M669 and the M469, then it's a good solid pistol.

Not yet. I am selling them local right now. I have seen an increased demand for home/car guns here and I have sold a bunch of them in the last year. I have a 910, 5906 (3), 6906, and a 4046 for sale right now.
If you are serious about one send me a PM.

As I said above, I have the 439 and the 569, which is a bit lighter then the "59's" but only 12 shot...
