Just One Number Off


Upper is a S&W Model 909.  Lower is a S&W Model 910.  They sure look similar, don't they?


Could you tell I switched which one was on top?

From the back it's really obvious what the difference is:


The 909 is single stack and the 910 is double.  Which didn't make a bit of difference in capacity in the mid-nineties.  The "ten round" 910 magazines only hold nine rounds, just like the 909's!  What you can do with the 910 is use a pre-Clinton 15 rounder.

Also of note, magazines for the 909 work in a Model 39, but not vice-versa.
