I love them. Bought another one last year then sold it. It is a great gun, it served no purpose for me so I let it go. Great guns. Might keep one in 10mm if I ever come across a 1006.

Wonderful 3rd generation S&W and the only Smith I've ever owned.

Still looking and shooting good after all these years.



Nice, that one's been "purdied" up a bit, I like it.

Rare Bird

It turns out the 4566 Fresno Integral Railed Stainless version is somewhat of a rare bird I'm hearing from my fellow forum members at the S&W forum! Not only because of it being a Fresno, but more importantly, a railed stainless. Apparently, the integral railed version were melanite and only a handful were in stainless. The original box has some type of square cut-out in the foam for some type of insert? Wished I could find this?

I just read a report from the armorer in Fresno California (thank you S&W forum member living in LA) when the 4566TSW were in service and it seems at that time they only had 675 in service that were being traded back to S&W and being fazed out to make room for the new plastic fantastic coming in. The report said it was because of the trouble with getting parts to service these (and other older weapons) due to parts availability.
At least we know how many were produced with these markings (Fresno S.O. 150 Year Anniversary), around 675 produced between 1990-2004. Explains why we don't see them come up for sale.
I can't find any info on line that's useful about this particular gun, but at least now I know it's scarcity.
The integral railed stainless 4566TSW still remains an elusive bird. Plenty of railed 9mm, railed 40TSW, railed 4566TSW in Melanite, stainless 4566TSW with riveted on black rail, but not many 45TSW to speak of like this. She'll be retired and displayed.
Pictured with the 4566TSW with riveted rail.
