    Is it possible/feasible to convert a S&W semi-auto pistol from DA/SA to DAO? I'm interested in something like the Model 3913 in DAO.

    Thanks for any insight or experience with such things.

    Yes, it can be done. You will then have a Model 3953. S&W or an authorized S&W gunsmith can do it for you.

    I suspect it wouldn't be cheap.

    You'll need a new slide, for instance (the DAO slides are a little longer in the back - IIRC the 3953 shares the same slide part as my 6946).

    Revolver or Double Action Auto Converted To Double Action Only Gun cannot be thumb-cocked. Protects against civil liability accusations that your gun was "negligently cocked" when criminal suspect was shot (i.e. Florida vs. Officer Luis Alvarez, the highly publicized "video arcade killing trial.") This modification does not include bobbing the hammer spur. $35.00
