    Strange 5904

    I picked up a 5904 today, but it has a few strange attributes:

    1) It has an "AIP" serial number prefix; I can't find it in the S&WSC.

    2) The safety does not drop the hammer (which my other 3rd gens do); however, the hammer has a half-cock position (which my other 3rd gens don't!).

    3) The grip is the old version that was later redesigned by S&W (it does not have the dimple on the base that the new ones have).

    Any thoughts on what I've bought?

    Here's a few pictures:

    Thank you for the reference.

    I don't think it's a LEO gun - the magazine safety is still in place. Most LEO guns had the mag safety disabled.

    Thanks again,
