So, I had a doctors appt. today, and was an hour early, but luckily there is a Cabelas down the street, sooo thought I'd go in and kill a lil time. Was looking at the used handguns and noticed an older gen3 Smith, a model 6944. I seemed to remember that this was a very limited run, i think maybe 512 total were made? It was in very nice shape, bout 95 % bluing left with Houge? finger grooved wrap around grips. The price was 299.99, so I put a c-note on it(dinna have enuff funds to get it then)and will pick it up and post pix prolly Monday. My question is this, does anyone know how collectable this pistol is?Came with 2 mags and a pistol rug....i did a quick search and saw one that sold for 725.00 on GunsAmerica i think. Ya'all think i got a good deal? I dont think i wanna flip it, seems like a nice, compact lil Double Action (only?) 9 mm. Thanks in advance for any replies....hopefully a S&W guy may have more info for me ,Mike.

You would get a better response over on the Smith & Wesson Forum. That said, if the piece is to have true "collector value," it probably needs to be all original, have no wear, have its original box and contents, etc. As a used gun with wear and non-original stocks, it may take longer than most of us have to gain much "collector value," although there is certainly a "fan club" for metal-frame Smith & Wesson automatics that might appreciate the gun more.

Thank you Judge, I did try the S&W forum, but for some reason it wont come up tonight, maybe down for repairs? I dont wanna sell it or anything, just looking about for a bit of info, and there are many here on this forumm whom I greatly value the opinions of, tho I know its prolly not the best place for asking bout S&Ws. I do appreciate your reply tho sir, thanks. Mike

Thank you Tony. The collectors value doe'nt mean much to me, just an interesting fact. I plan to keep it and after seeing how she shoots, use it for a Summertime CCW...its small plus has 12+1 capacity, so should fill that roll nicely I think.As stated, I do value the opinions of a great many on this Site, tho I know its for Colts. Thanks to you all for taking time to reply, enjoy your weekends and Happy Shooting fellers.MIKE
