Well, Ayoob is fond of pointing out how the shorter-barreled Smith autos are sometimes more accurate than the service size models.:smile: If the gun is for CCW, then I would weigh in favor of the 4013. If it is for duty, home or range use, then the all-steel model would be the way to go.

The 4003 is the alloy-framed version of the all-steel 4006. The 4013 also has an aluminum frame. It's essentially the .40S&W version of the 3913. The newer 4013TSW takes a double-stack magazine and is kind of like a .40 version of the 6906. I love my TSW. It's very accurate and has surprisingly low recoil. The trigger is getting better and better, and it's been highly reliable. Can't ask for much more than that.

Spackler - My intro to S&W autos was the older 3913 I traded for a few weeks back. Seems to be a really great gun, and well thought of by many shooters. It has no hammer spur but I've learned to cock it. Can you easily cock the 4013TSW? Another question: with the double-stack magazine, can you still get a good grip on the trigger for a one-handed pull of the DA shot? Thanks.

Ludwig - I sometimes cock it by "staging" the trigger, then getting my thumb on the hammer when it starts back. But when I do this I do it very carefully and make sure I am very conscience of what I'm doing - and I don't do it all that often. I know of somebody who has a TSW that has been modified with an un-bobbed hammer. That may be a good route to go.
My hands are not large, and I can get a good grip. Trigger reach is not a problem at all. I do have to shift my grip to hit the slide release after a reload, or hit it with the thumb of my support hand. This hasn't proven to be a problem for me though.
