    It's a "TSW" for "Tactical Smith & Wesson, go to the Page7b link above and look for "S&W Centerfire Pistols (Metal Frame)" you guns is "DAO" or Double Action Only"

    As for the grips, shouldn't be too hard, check out Hogue and Pachmayr, I'm not sure of the exact model number of the gun yet though...wait one.

    Are you sure it's 10 in the mag and not 9?

    I'm fairly certain you have a 4053TSW, I suppose you could have a larger gun with a , "ban magazine of 10 rounds".

    The 3rd Gen S&W autos are not on S&W's website anymore since they've been discontinued.

    What do you think is a fair price for this gun? has 1 magazine and a small amount of scaring on the plastic, inside of the chamber and barrel doesnt have any scratches and is extremly clean almost as if it hasnt been fired only carried?
