Introduced in 1989, the S&W 5900 series was the flagship of Smith & Wesson’s third generation pistol lines. The design traces its lineage back to the Model 39 pistol of 1955. It is a double action pistol, firing from a staggered column 14rd magazine. Construction of the 5906 is all stainless steel. The S&W 5903 is nearly identical, slightly lighter due to an aluminum alloy frame. Also available is the S&W 5904, featuring a blued carbon steel slide and matching alloy frame.
Users of the S&W 5906 include the Japanese Coast Guard, RCMP, NYPD and Honolulu PD among others.
