Smith & Wesson 5906 9MM Very Good 1 MAG
By Eslic1 on 11/25/19
This thing was in great condition only needed a good cleaning. The original grips were a little worse for wear but $20 bucks and an ebay account produced brand new "Hogues". I half expect it to be in much worse condition and I'm glad I was wrong. The 5906 feels so comfortable in the hand it's not even funny. Picked up 2 additional 15 round mags and now I'm good to go. Those interested in the 5906 needs to get them while they're hot, you will not be disappointed.

What a GREAT firearm. I had a tracking number 2 hours after I placed the order and had the pistol 2 business days later. This pistol is closer to Excellent than very good . Arrived very clean ... VERY little dirt . 3 or 4 minor holster marks that buffed out with minimum effort , grips had minor wear , the Novak sights had one dot missing, but I was planning on replacing them when I ordered. This pistol looks almost new with minimum work !

First off, shipping is the quickest I’ve seen. Ordered Tuesday night, it shipped Wednesday and had it by Friday. The biggest issue I noticed off the bat is how dirty it was. It took me about an hour to clean it well. I recommend removing the grip to clean under them as well. The condition of the grips are iffy but can be readily replaced cheaply. No biggie. The slide and frame has scuffs and minor scratches but no gouges or dings. I keep in mind this piece is possibly 20-30 years old and saw quite a bit of use and is in damn good shape considering. The internals look good with no excessive wear and function properly. The barrel is in great shape but shows bore wear. However, the rifling is still fairly pronounced. The trigger and mechanism works well. The SA trigger take up and break is one of the best I’ve tried. The reset is phenomenal. The DA is long and fairly heavy but smooth. The last thing is the mag which is more beat up than anything. I had to disassemble it and clean everything well. However, good replacement mags are easy to find for about 20-25 bucks. Overall, you can’t beat these pistols for the money, considering they ran 500 or so brand new back in the day. I gave 4 stars because mine wasn’t in “very good” condition. Due to it being so damn dirty and minor cosmetic issues, it’s closer to “good”. Do it though. You won’t be disappointed.

Additional to above rating. While cosmetically decent and dependable shooter. This gun has a barrel that is mostly shot out. Barely see the grooves. No complaints as it is surplus. I get two or three center target hits at 10 yards and flyer or two out of every magazine I load. OK accuracy but not great. Just a fyi.

Terrifc gun rated as "Very Good" condition (I agree). Barely looks like it was ever shot and the barrel is immaculate. Some minor wear on the finish, 1 sight is missing some paint, and the grips are a little rough, but all and all, this gun looks and feels great.
The double action trigger is surprisingly good and the single action is nearly perfect with a fairly light pull and barely any reset. I absolutely love this trigger.
I would highly recommend ordering one before they're gone.

I purchased 2 of these, the first one was in good shape with no damage to grips and minor surface abrasions. The second one I purchased appears older and is much more rough. The grips are busted and should not be graded "very good". All of these should be graded good at best.

Purchased my second, received an item that was graded as excellent, couldn't be happier. Minor holster wear, grips were almost pristine.

While the example I received was mechanically sound it had some scratches and wear to the metal while the grips were extremely beat up. I would have rated this firearm in the Fair-Good category. All in all about what to expect at this price point but certainly not Very Good

I didn’t get one as nice as WHO_TEE_WHO shows but it is quite good overall. I have a small amount of holster wear and a small nick in the slide near the barrel. Overall the condition would be very good as advertised.

I am very happy with this firearm, the condition is as described. The weakest point is one side of the grips with some scratches and wear. This is still not a deal breaker, it is in very nice condition. Shipping and price are very good. I will order from Gunprime again. I am giving a 5 star rating.

This was advertised as VERY GOOD condition gun. The gun is at best in good condition, very far from very good. Not even close to the ones pictured.
Grips need to be replaced. Heavy holster wear on the tip, very dirty, sight dots one time were there but now are gone the same for the safety red dot, barrel seems to be OK.
This gun in this condition can be purchased cheaper somewhere else the VERY GOOD condition description made me buy it and I got bitten.
Hopefully with new grips a good clean and polish and paint touch-up can be brought back to a very good condition but that means more money and time.

Was very pleased with this purchase. Rating on the box was ‘V’ and the pistol condition was indeed very good. A few minor scratches that I was able to remove with some light polishing with Scotch-Brite. Almost no holster wear. Grips could use replacing but those are available for $20 online so no big deal. That is just me being picky though. A great pistol at a decent price… What more can you ask for?

What a bargain on a quality firearm. For being a used firearm you would never know it. It looks like a $1500 gun it's so pristine and new looking. The 5906 I received looked brand new, no detectable holster wear at all with only one very small scratch on the slide near the muzzle end. My brother thought the gun was new when he held and looked it over. I disassembled the gun and magazines and only the magazine springs looked their age but upon reassembly and a trip the range the gun fired off flawlessly through a 100 rounds with no failure whatsoever and a fantastic trigger reset in SA. The DA was nice too. Everything operated just as it was designed to. Very accurate shooting. I fully recommend getting one of these and with all springs, extractor pins, firing pins/lever, etc available from Brownell's for spare parts, why not? A great collectible, a house or range gun at this price. I could write an essay on it. I'm very happy with this offering and purchase from Gunprime. Shipment was quick too. Thanks Gunprime for a great deal.
