Smith & Wesson S&W Model 459 in 9mm

In the early ’80s, the gun world was fascinated by the “Wonder 9”. With the high capacity of a Browning Hi-Power and the safe double action of a Walther P-38, this new breed of handgun was quickly appreciated by enthusiasts if slowly adopted institutionally.
The second of Smith & Wesson’s Wonder-9s, the model 459 is one of the earliest examples of the type of pistol most popular today. I am just sorry that I sold mine years ago!
