Other than springs (as noted above) which continue to be available... and possibly extractor, ejector and sideplate or maybe a replacement grip (for cosmetics)... I think you are going to be hard pressed to predict what you might need over time that makes sense to buy now as a ready replacement. I tend to buy this and that small replacement parts when I see them on sale or on eBay or when I am putting in a large order with the Mothership. So far, they have mostly been a waste of money, but I have a large collection of 3rd Gens so maybe they will be used someday by me or maybe as trading fodder for other parts that I don't own at some point in the future?I always heard the 3rd gen S&W autos are very tough and could take 10mm punishment, but I also see that parts are pretty much gone. If I did get one, what should one try to find for spares?
Huge news in the world of S&W plastic aficionados!Did any of you hear the news today? S&W is going to make a new 10mm M&P M2.0 pistol.
Now, I can't wait to get one of their plastic M&P's into my collection.

I have a S&W 4046, and it may be the strongest-made gun that I have owned.I always heard the 3rd gen S&W autos are very tough and could take 10mm punishment, but I also see that parts are pretty much gone. If I did get one, what should one try to find for spares?
Yep, 11 round magazines are showing up at sensible prices. I managed to find 10 round magazines on a lot of previous searches, with some at high prices. My mind has turned into mush too, with old age. So it takes me twice as long to get things done.Just search for "S&W 4006 magazine"...I saw at least a dozen listings.
Join the club! With me it is 3 or 4 times longer. I've got to replace the rear brake pads on my mini-SUV and I guarantee you it will take one full day.My mind has turned into mush too, with old age. So it takes me twice as long to get things done. Thanks.🥴
What are they going for now? I know I over-paid for mine back in late-2018, but I wanted one in "as-new" condition.Hop on em if you want some. They may dry up in a few months.
The CHP 4006TSWs seem to be selling briskly, as all the other 3rd Gens--they've really picked up in sales prices, in past ten months.
