Son of 39-2 639
$400 and up now. I paid $250 several moons ago.
that’s a good price! they make it in a .45 or .40?
Considering it was gone a decade before the 40 was introduced, I’d say no.
Showing my age and ignorance, but I didn’t know they make that handsome of a gun back then
something about “your and my” confidence from carrying a single stack! I been carrying a Colt Defense 7-shot with extra mag. Feels right
Not initially, no. The first gen Smiths, 39 single stack, 59 double stack, were only 9mm. Second gen introduced the .45 and the third gen brought in the .40 and 10mm. This chart will help sort out the mess..
The 39 was the first 9mm auto adopted by any law enforcement organization, Illinois State Police. There was even a special ISP load, which Federal still makes and is a dandy, 9BPLE, a 115g +P+..
I currently lack a second gen. I have a 4506 and a 5906 to fill the third gen spots.
I need that in my life!!
I can never find a 2nd gen, ever. LGS has a mess of 5906s and 6906s, and a 4506 or something, but no darn 2nd gens.
I actually got my 5906 from him and a decent price. But I want a 2nd!!
that’s the best information I got all week! NICE
Gen 2 did make a .45 ACP! bet that comes at a premium price
Its no less than one of the most accurate 9mms ever made...
In fact, the 952 is one of my favorite pistols of all time.
*editted, Looks like one can expect to pay $1k or so. The ones you pay real money for are those lovely model 52s and 952s like bc1023 posted above and has me just messing myself.
those Guns look SO GOOD!!! WOW!
