Hello to everyone.

While doing research on an upcoming handgun purchase, I came across your dynamic site while on Genitron.com. Well, I've owned 2 rugers P89 models , Reminton 870 express 12 gauge pump shotgun, 38 revolvers, .380s and a small 22 all in the past. I don't know the fine etiquettes of guns, all I know is a gun is gun for the most part. Those guns mentioned above have been traded or pawned over the years. Well now Im in the hunt for a concealible powerhouse that wont break the bank. I've narrowed my choices down to the .40 S &W tacticle (Model 4006T5W) and the S&W .40 pistol (model 4105). What are the differences in these two guns. From what I see, one says tacticle and the other doesnt. Both are very similar in the build and design. Also for the .40 S&W pistol (model 4105), I found the same gun with a production date of 2003-present (info found on genitron.com) and one with a production date of 2005-present. I noticed that the later production date of the two did have manual thumb safety with 11 round clip vs. the 2003 production which had a decock lever/side mounted saftey. IS there any ADVANTAGE of 1 over the other. Then which one of those gun would you choose compared to the TACTICLE .40 S&W.
thanks for any info that can be given. I hate to say hello and then askes tons of questions, but I'm so excited about my upcoming purchase and don't want to make a misinformed purchase for $500 + dollars.

Thanks,

-Lamar

Smith .40

I think you may be referring to the 410 S. Stainless version of the value series 410. A 4105 would be a .41 caliber.

The two you are referring to are similar but different. The 410 S is a bare bones pistol. It does not have ambi safety.

The TSW has longer frame rails and better (advertised) accuracy. It should also have a light rail on the dust cover (front bottom of the frame)

It all depends on what you want the gun to do. The 410 S will likely serve you well. If you can spare the extra $ the TSW has about all the bells and whistles you will ever need.

Thank you sir.
I called S&W today and was told that the .40 S&W taticle gun was only sold to law inforcement, not the general public. :(

thanks for the info and pointing me in the right direction.

For now. They will eventually become available. I bought one of the first generation model 59's in the early 70's when they were selling to cops only. After a couple of years, they were everywhere.
