What happened to his BREN 10? that's the only one I recall him shooting.Don Johnson's character Sonny Crockett on Miami Vice carried a Smith 645 starting in season 3.
Pro or Con?...that is up to you
If you like this gun, but aren't sure about it as your purchase you might also look at the Smith 4506, a latter version.
I am a crank, and it pleases me.GOOD:
slender frame, feels like a 1911 in the hand.
double/single action with hammer-drop de-cock
stainless steel, even including springs, but hammer is carbon steel, more durable
heavy-weight, low recoil
S&W's first semi-auto .45ACP
single-stack mag, not hi-capacity
magazine disconnector (if you do not care for)
lacked improved wrap-around grips (came with next gen.)
poor chambered-round indication
big gun, heavy for concealed
said to be about as accurate, untuned, as 1911
It might be added that a single-action-only model was short production run, a very nice alternative, designated "745".
If I think of anything else, I'll add later. If you are thinking of buying one, you will not be disappointed, unless you are a crank, and then nothing would please anyway!
