I recently saw an S&W 3913 TSW with a seven-round S&W magazine. Are these seven-rounders early versions? Are the 3913 TSWs able use the regular-eight round 3913 magazines?
“If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.”
I agree that there must have been a variant with the shortened grip frame, because after buying my railed 3913 TSW, I acquired some new-old-stock magazines that are too short. These mags have specially-shaped baseplates, to distinguish them from normal 3913 mags.
