    My new S&W 4053

    Just picked up one of the 4053 LEO trade-ins from J&G in Prescott, AZ. I must say....WOW! That is one SWEET handling sidearm. Haven't had a chance to fire it yet but I am in love already.

    My dad has an XD sub and my brother has an M&P compact but they just don't feel like this "old school" Smith.

    I know...worthless without pics...just haven't had the chance today.

    I have the same "Tactical" DAO versions of that pistol in 9mm, .40 S&W and .45 ACP. You'll like it.

    I like the Smith DAO system. Once you get the rhythm you will too.

    First time out...

    I fell in love the moment I picked it up but now the relationship has been consumated at the range. It shoots Hornady 155 gr. XTP/HP's into one solid cluster at 10 yards and that trigger is almost silky. As soon my two extra mags get here this will be a constant companion. Best $300 I have ever spent.

    Wish I would have discovered these DAO S&W's a long time ago...now I need a .45...

    Great find. I want one to match my 6946. Great guns the 3rd Gen smiths and are very reliable (mine has never failed in over 5K rounds). Was my first carry gun.

    I still fire her up every month or two.

    Is it a bigger or fuller grip than the factory one? I don't necessarily like the feel of hard plastic but I DO like the size and contour. I changed out the grips for Uncle Mike's on my 4006 and while they are a good feeling grip they made it a bit larger than I wanted.

    It's going to feel a hair bigger, but it seems to make up for it in the control of the gun.
    I have small hands and I always felt as though I couldn't hold onto the plastic grips (almost like I needed to have a death grip on the gun) As soon as the Hogues went on, it seemed like with any partial grip I had, I was still in control.
    Hope I explained that well enough........
