The top ends were essentially the same, save the 669 that had a shorter barrel.



The third gen guns opened the flood gates with DA/SA, DAO, Frame Decocker (ala Sig). Different frame materials (aluminum alloy and steel, both stainless and carbon steel). The model numbers get mind numbing in the 3rd gen guns.

Uh, mine is a 569 Satin Nickel 12 Shot, and my other one is a 34 yO 439....

I just finished with 12 more gen 3's on Friday. Mostly 5906's and a couple of 6906's. They will fly off the shelves quickly

I've always wondered the motivation behind the seller being unable to say which agency the trade-in came from. I live with in driving distance from J&G Sales and have purchased numerous police, military and security handgun trade-ins. The J&G sales person either gives me an "I dunno" or truthfully tells me they can not reveal the agency. The only exception about 10 or so years ago. J&G got a bunch of S&W Model 10's from France. They had no problem saying they came from French police.

About the same time I purchased three Model 10's. I also bought a couple of near mint and very cherry Rossi 357's that came to J&G via a bankruptcy sale from an out of business security company. J&G could or would not say whom or even which state they came from.

Why the secrecy? Is it for liability reasons?

My confidentiality agreement is with GT Distributors. I have no idea what kind of arrangement they have with the Agency, S&W or the new supplying manufacturer.

I am getting to the more difficult ones now. Several 6906's and 669's done yesterday. The biggest problem with the remaining ones is stuck magazine release detents. It appears they have grit, possible very fine sand that is preventing the detent from applying spring pressure to the mag release. Will likely have to drill the detents and replace. GT will likely just sell them off as project guns (as is). If you have a good drill press you can probably get one for about $100 or less.

For now, I am cannibalizing parts. Anyone have a 4006 TSW slide? We've got a good bottom end and cracked slide.

I found a model I had never heard of. 410S Stainless slide, Alloy frame, 10 round double stack, 40. Got it working even though it is a cheap "value series" with plastic sights and chunky slide. For the serious collector, it is rare.

Not trying to run you off but you might take those to the S&W board. Some collectors there with some awfully deep pockets.

Several will be posted on Gunbroker as parts/project guns. I have stripped some with cracked frames (6906's mostly).

I found a good 4006 TSW frame and slide to mate together. The cracked frame and slide will go to auction. I now have a good amount of parts cannibalized in preparation for the next shipment.

Give a man a tool and he will abuse and neglect it. If he buys his own tools, he will take care of them (better). I am reminded of the Deputy Constable who brought me his malfunctioning Sig P-226 in .357 Sig. I stripped off the slide and he said "how did you do that?" I looked closer and saw that it was fouled beyond belief. I detail stripped it and dropped it in a bucket of solvent. I told him to come back the next day. "But, what will I carry till then?" An empty holster is more reliable than that gunked up pistol. As a side note, his "carry" ammo was 125 gr FMJ!!!!
That guy is a walking liability.
