    S&W Model 659 Question...

    Hi, I am fairly new to semiautos and I am currently shooting a 645 which I love. I want to add a 9mm to the stable and I like the idea of giving my 645 a little brother so I am considering a 659. Unfortunately I can't locate one nearby so it would be an online purchase. Because of the similarity between the 659 and the 645 which I am familiar with I am fairly comfortable with this however my one concern is the size of the grip on the double stack 659. I do not have small hands and I am very comfortable with the grip on the 645 but I am hoping that somebody can give me a comparison between the grip sizes for these guns. Should I expect the 659 grip to be much bigger (fatter) than the 645? I was originally considering the single stack 639 but now I am leaning towards the hi-cap 659 in case I get into IDPA... I appreciate any advice... Thanks, Matt

    The grip is a little fatter than the 645. I've owned both pistols and like the ergonomics of both. On the 659, the grip is also a bit shorter front to rear than the 645. Also, if the 659 proves a bit difficult to find, the 5906 is a similar pistol with a single factory grip that also takes the place of the backstrap that the 645 has. There are some that have become available on the market through several sources. Here is one.
