Received this today from Copper Custom in Valparaiso, IN
It's a Smith & Wesson 4006 TSW traded in by the CHP (California Highway Patrol)



Tim (Military Arms Channel) takes $15 from each one of these he sells & sends it to the California Gun Owners Association to help fight the crappy California gun laws!! That alone makes this a good purchase!

It is in very good condition with only a few places where the holster rubbed on it - but that is to be expected as this was carried daily by a CHP officer!
It's cool to own this pistol with the history that it has - plus knowing that the 4006 TSW was built at the request of the CHP and only available to them and not the general public makes it even more special!

I plan to follow up with a range report after a trip to the range this weekend!

A local gun shop had one a couple years ago, it looked like it was not carryed and the price reflected it. I do not remember $ but it was out of my range.

What's the asking price? I have to factor that, shipping and FFL costs.
$399 + $35 shipping.
I didn't have to pay any FFL transfer because the membership package to the range that I'm a member of (Shoot Point Blank) allows 1 free transfer per month.

P.S. It came with 3 mags!

I had one a few years ago, really nice shape and the night sights were still bright. I sold it when I got whacked with a huge tax bill and needed cash, so it and a lot of my other guns went away. I decided to sell my only remaining .40 gun soon after that, and have decided to only do .22lr, .380, 9MM, and .45 ACP in semiautos. I really like the third gen S&W guns. The stuff they make now? They can keep it.

Range Update:

Here is a picture of the first 21 rounds. 10 yds. shooting Blazer Brass 180grn
Not too bad in my mind considering I have never shot this gun before.



Shot the same ammo in my CZ P-07 to compare the recoil.


The weight of the stainless steel Smith & Wesson makes the recoil of the .40 feel more like a push straight back.
The recoil with the polymer frame of the P-07 definitely allows the muzzle to rise.


Not too much take-up on the trigger, a very well defined wall, and a guesstimated trigger pull of 6 lbs. in single action.
Double action pull was stout but manageable - guesstimated at around 11 lbs.


Then there's the reset . . . . oh my word . . . . the reset is crazy short! I thought the reset on my P-07 was short. Well the reset on this 4006 is about half that of the P-07. WOWSERS!!! Seemed like my finger twitched and the trigger reset!


This thing is definitely a keeper!!

That is one fine pistol you've got there.

I really love the Gen 3 S&W Semiautomatic Pistols, it's a terrible shame that they don't make them anymore.
