Just bought a S&W 6590 transitional RSR auto
« on: October 24, 2019, 07:22:43 PM »
It's true!  I don't have it yet and I ended up paying top dollar, but it's the first one I ever heard of or found.  I checked the Smith and Wesson 4th Edition by Jim Suprica and it said these were made of up of remaining Gen 2 frames and Gen 2 or 3 slides, sights, etc for RSR gun wholesalers.  According to a post I read on the Smith and Wesson forum, only 177 of this model were built with RSR serial numbers.  BUT, without the box and papers, they are only as valuable as the buyer is will to pay.  Mine will not have box or papers, but by golly, it is a 6590!

I'm on the 7 day weekend plan.  I'm retired!!
