Produced from 1988 to 1999, the 4506 was the flagship of Smith & Wesson’s third generation pistols in .45 caliber. The initial design was very similar in appearance to the 2nd generation 645, with stepped frame and recurved trigger guard. The later 4506-1 featured a slab sided frame and smoother, curved trigger guard. The construction is all stainless-steel with wrap-around grips. The slide mounted lever functions as a safety as well as a decocking lever.
The 4506 is one of the authorized pistols for LAPD officers following the North Hollywood Shootout.
