I had a 59 in college. My brother has a 39-2 and it has given him many years and thousands of rounds of flawless fun.
The 1st gen guns have more sharp edges than the later guns. In many ways they are superior to the 2nd gen guns. The attempt to "modernize" the design failed (IMHO) with the cheapening of the gun. The ambi safety just screwed on was very problematic on the 2nd gen guns.
I have several 3rd gen S&W's; 5906, 1006, 1066, 4506. They just plain work.
In life, strive to take the high road....It offers a better field of fire.
