Classic Steel..

Smith model 4006tsw.

My love affair with Smith autos has been on and off over the years, But I’ve always had a soft spot for the “3rd gen” auto pistols. Made of steel and not plastic they do have some weight and bulk, but they are a joy to shoot. Most of these are LEO trade-ins since the popularity of polymer over steel, so they are generally on the cheap side(under $400), “Collector” quality pieces will fetch a bit more however.

If you ever run across one, I suggest trying one out.
