 well I went to the range with the 4006 TSW S&W put about 200 rounds of Blazer 165 gr fn through it. the trigger on this thing is nothing short of amazing. When I can get out of my own way and quit anticipating The Recoil, this thing is dead on.
Still having a bit of trouble getting these magazines to slide all the way in without having to give it a little extra bump.
 I recently changed the magazine release button for an extended version, and not sure whether the Treads weren't catching right or maybe it just wasn't the right threads, the magazine release yank the threads right out of the extended button. 😡 $12 product shipping and handling now in the garbage. I put the factory release button back on because the threads on the release shaft we're not stripped only the button. Out of the 200 rounds of Blazer three of them FTF.
I'm thinking they were just badcaps.
I think I'll do better with this S&W with quite a few more rounds through it, because right now I'm yanking the shots left in anticipation. I'll get over it just going to take time , and a lot of rounds. All in all a very happy with the purchase, especially the price.💲
3 days ago I was going to order a Don Hume h721 O. T. Holster, they told me they didn't haven't made any and none in stock for my pistol. So then I decided on the J.I.T. Holster from Don Hume, placed the order, the next day got a message that they were out of stock on those and it would be six to eight weeks to ship. But, she said she had the warehouse check on the previous holster I looked into which is what I wanted in the first place, and lo and behold they found one for my pistol. She then proceeded to tell me that she would let me have that for the same price as the other one. (Chuching)  Which at that point brought the price down on the one I originally wanted by 50% , I said absolutely.👍
yes I'm a happy camper😃😎
I'm thinking I may purchase another one of these, why? (1 . They don't make them anymore...(2  . it's an iconic pistol designed exclusively for CHP and as many features the consumer model does not have....(3 when they are done selling these they're gone, and the price goes up $$$$.

Nice looking work.  The Before mode did not need to be in bold characters and large font size.  Flashing lights were not installed -- maybe a good thing.

Thanks for the nice words.

I think that I’ll have to order one of these.  The prices seem to have gone up but not by much.  I’ve never liked slide mounted safeties but I see that these are decockers, which is how I like to carry.  I’m having a hard time finding a reason to not pick one up.

you mean the polishing correct?
If it's stainless steel there's no problem. if it's a regular raw steel then you're going to have to have it blued or rust blued.
first must start with a very flat surface and then use 400 grit 600 grit and 1500 grit wet sandpaper put a little water  and a drop of dish soap on the paper  before you start and quite a few hundred Strokes on the paper.
A large felt polishing wheel on a professional drill in a vise, then a soft woven cotton  wheel, then hand polish.

While I would not have done that to that gun, I can respect that you did a great job on it.

When I first started to do it I thought what am I getting myself into. After I finished it I still wasn't sure, but now it's really grown on me and I love it. Get a lot of great comments and thank you for yours.
