    Did Smith & Wesson ever made any all-metal 9mm? What other 9mm were made in all metal / steel frame?

    Doing a research so I can go back on Monday to argue with my local gunsmith! Your input are more than welcome!


    your sincere student -:rolleyes:

    I think just about every Smith semi-auto made before the M&P was all metal.
    Look at the 39 (1st Gen), the 469 (2nd Gen) and the 3XXX and 6XXX series (3rd Gen) for starters.

    Isn't the 5906 all stainless? I beleive it is. The 5903 is stainless slide with an alloy frame and the 5906 is the same size but with a steel frame. Both 4 inch barreled 15 round 9mms.

    So yeah...they made an all steel 9mm...all stainless...but all steel! LOL

    Heres the info:

    heres the link with most of them listed (I went off of brickboy) Smith & Wesson - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I almost bought a 5059 at Christmas, supposedly great guns, just a pain to strip apart.

    A lot of huge police agencies still use the steel framed ones, a lot of medium sized frames are still around for bugs as well. NY NY still had them when I saw the cops there over Christmas.

    The 5906 Smith 9mm was once a very common police issued pistol. In the late 80s - early 90s, it was king until the Glocks came along. It was the main pistol that brought many police out of the revolver era and into the "wondernines."

    I see many nice lightly used 5906s and 5903s on the used market at very good prices. They're a tad heavy (the 5906) but decent shooters.

    I used to own an all-metal Firestar 9mm.

    Prior to Glocks becoming popular, virtually every handgun by every manufacturer was all-metal, and plenty of them were 9's.

    Is the fellow you're arguing with asserting something to the contrary?

    I think 5906, one might be a 5903.

All of these guns are of good quality and manufacture.
    All of these guns use the same fifteen round magazine.

    in regards to the other all metal 9mm most of the sig alone has a tone of all metal 9mm's

    Check out the berretta 92, and the Sig p226 for some sweet shooting, time tested all metal 9mm's
