First I want to thank all that responded with all the excellent information and opinions.
Before I was able to get back with the owner the pistol had been sold,so somebody got a great deal on the 4026.
I already have a Glock mod 23 that i've had since the first year of production of the 23.
My reason for buying the 4026 wasn't for a ccw or a heavier pistol to tame recoil since I regularly shoot my S&W 629 44 mag.
I was mainly interested in the S&W 4026 as a addition to my collection,i've heard there were not many 4026 produced? And thinking the 4026 might be a collectable model down the road?
Thanks again for all the great responses.
