S&W 4006

G-Man, I have owned three Smith M4006's, and was issued one by my employer in 1991. We fired the revolver transition course with it, which consisted of 1,260 rounds fired in two days. The ammo was full-bore WW Ranger LE 165 grain JHP. We would shoot them 300 rounds, wipe them out with rags and CLP, run a bore brush through them, lube them up with CLP and go for another 300 rounds. Nobody in my 14 man block of trainees had the slightest malfunction with any of our M4006's. I have likewise never had a failure to function in any of my privately owned 4006's, either. You cannot find a better .40 caliber pistol. Regrettably I can no longer tolerate the recoil of the .40 and have sold all of mine.

The 4006 came in today. What a nice gun. Fit and finish inside and out every bit as good as SIG, IMHO. t-up

Someone has been shooting cast boolits through this booger because the barrel is heavily leaded. Got it soaking in Ballistol now.

Wow - I would have expected larger as well.

Did you get it from GB.com? Total?

How is the trigger pull? I'm really liking my FN-P 45 trigger.

Don't get me wrong, the 4006 is still a big chunk of steel. In doing a closer comparison it is a littler larger than the P225--more like a Commander size 1911 (but with a wider slide and thicker grip)--but still smaller than what I was expecting. Definitely smaller than my Ruger P95.

Trigger seems a bit odd and I'll reserve judgment until I get the gun to the range. The DA pull is great. The SA pull feels like a 2-stage trigger.

I got it from GB. Total with shipping was $375.

Finally got to shoot the 4006 yesterday. It's a sweet shooting gun. At 25 yards from a semi-rest (on the hood of my friend's pickup) my first ten shots were all in a 6" circle. This was with WWB ammo. Trigger is gritty and after talking with JayPee he says it just needs a good tear down and cleaning to clear that up.
