The 5906 is a full-sized, double/single action, staggered-column magazine, 9mm pistol. The weapon’s construction is all stainless steel. The firearm is chambered to fire 9mm Luger Parabellum ammunition. The firearm was factory-shipped with a magazine disconnect feature designed to deactivate the trigger if the magazine is not fully inserted. The 5906 comes standard with either a 10 or 15 round magazine. Other features include ambidextrous safety levers, a one-piece rear wraparound grip, and a choice of either fixed sights or a rear sight fully adjustable for windage and elevation. A popular model with law enforcement and military units in the United States, the 5906 is nevertheless being replaced by lighter, polymer-framed models from Glock, Heckler & Koch, SIG Sauer as well as Smith & Wesson’s own M&P line of polymer framed handguns in both 9mm and .40 calibers.
