    A nice old pistol - works best with Ball ammo.

    Higher capacity and portability,and a little cheaper to shoot.and a case of new gun blues.
     
  5. I was issued a 39, single stack version, never had a problem with the gun. I wish I had owned it instead of issued, I liked the gun.

    You can always get another 4595, the model 59 there are not very many in circulation.
     
  6. I had a s/w model 59 at one time.. sold it and brought a sig mosquito 22lr.
    like you, i had the new gun blues..

    There would be other choices for me than a 59, other than the mags fit the Marlin camp 9 I believe.
     
  8. Like i had stated before, the 59 was a great pistol.
    it would take any 59 series mags..:cool:

    I was looking to upgrade from my 9x18 mak and my JA-nine,and ran across an EAA sar k2 17rnd.9mm at Rural King for 249.00.so I put my 4595ts on a couple of local web sites for 300.00 and nobody's interested except for a guy with this S&W,so that's kinda where I'm at .I appreciate your opinions and replys,and hoping if I do this I'm not gettin reamed .so THANKS all

    USED it is worth more than a new 4595, so you are doing good,
    if the S&W is in good working order. I have one sitting in the LPS that
    I will buy if the right guy is in there to sell it to me! He was out today :(

    What hi-cap ALL METAL option is so much better? :D

    METAL > poly :p

    As mentioned a personal thing I have always been more partial to the Ruger's P series! ;)

    Old Smith and Wessons don't lose value. They gain value. I would do the trade.

    Cool beans, good choice!
    Might be a great candidate for a frame cerakote but have it appraised first as you don't want to ruin any collector value it may have later.
    Alternatively, keep it as is since wear marks just denotes character.
