Put on your Miami Vice jacket, and enjoy this one!
It sounds like you got a nice one. I don't have my reference materials at the moment, but that serial number seems like about 1985.Nice pistol and review . I have a 669 I bought mine in '88 but born on date is unknown and the box is looong gone Its a TBB309* . I like the pistol but never carried it much as its my only da/sa but still have it . My oldest grandson loves it and has shoot it far more than I have so I will give it to him in a few more years . Mine still has a limited number of rounds fired 500 maybe but my stock trigger pull is 8lb 1oz average for da and 3lb 4oz for the sa pull with the same trigger pull gauge .
I see them as slightly different in terms of their purposes. If I wanted a concealment piece I would opt for the Hellcat. If I was on duty working a plain clothes assignment, I would feel perfectly comfortable with the 469.Now that you have both this gun and the Hellcat, which do you like better, and given that the 469 was meant as a carry gun, which would you rather carry (if you weren't treating the 469 as an heirloom)?
