    Acquired a S&W M4513 (45ACP) tonight at auction.

    Won this 4513TSW (pre-rail) tonight at auction. Stainless steel slide and aluminum alloy frame. S&W only made this particular version from 97-99. When they re-introduced it in 2000 it had the light rail added. I was able to check it out a few weeks ago and it's in fine condition. It will go nicely with my 4586 and 4516-1. My winning bid was $500. It comes with three S&W magazines and the carrying case. I'll be getting it tomorrow, but here a few photos courtesy of the auction company. I'm getting hooked on the S&W 3rd Gen autos.

    Nice piece. The cool factor is off the charts with these 3rd gen S&Ws.

      I totally agree. I don't even own one, but I remember seeing them as a kid and thinking that is exactly how a handgun is supposed to look.

        When Idaho State Police switched to the 4586 in 91 my father let me shoot his shortly after he received it. Didn't care for it back then. Couldn't get into Smith's auto pistols back then. I was all about SIG and Beretta. I inherited it and dad's 4516 on his death in 2016. I now appreciate the 3rd Gen pistols. But isn't that how it so often goes. You don't appreciate a thing until it's gone.

          The full size .45 was awesome I bet. I want a 4506 just because of Training Day and the Shield. I think it’s as good a reason as any other lol. Very cool that your old man used these guns as a duty weapon. Guns can have a lot of sentimentality attached to them and the ones with a story behind them are the best.

                The late S&W 3rd Gen. metal framed models were very good platforms in there time. Enjoy!

                        Congrats. That's a great and very very underappreciated gun.

                        Does it have the magazine disconnect/safety (i.e., round chambered but won't fire if no magazine)? If so consider if you want to disable that, instructions are out there.

                          Reminds me of my dad's first center-fire pistol, a S&W Model 59 that he paid $200 for. He sold it for $200 to buy a 1911. I wish I had the 59.

                            Yes it does have that feature.

                              Don't disconnect. The risk reward calculus favors leaving it. Most accidental shootings with a pistol are caused by someone dropping the mag and assuming the gun is unloaded. Sometimes, even experienced gun guys have a senior moment. It can happen.

                              Big fan of the SW's pistols. Good find.
