Was cleaning up a pile of junk in the basement I haven't touched in two or three years and found--get this--a complete top half (assmebled barrel and slide) for a S&W .40!

Now, a couple years ago (2006, IIRC) I built up a 5906 out of a junk frame and random spare parts. First top half I found for it was a blued shorty, which functioned just fine. Later I found a proper stainless 5906 slide and barrel and bought them too. Still later I recall buying a blued .40 complete slide (but no barrel) for it; this was real cheap (like maybe $35?) but with it I was able to determine that if I were careful, I could modify it to work with the 9mm frame. I remember looking for a .40 barrel to go with that, and not finding one, but I have no memory of finding and buying another complete .40 top half!

Now, modding that slide and buying a .40 mag or two looks like will have to go somewhere on my "summer projects" list.
