    I just aquired a Used S&W 659. I think it has the factory adjustable rear sights. I was hoping somebody could tell me or show me some upgrades they have done to their 659. It is a really nice gun, And it matches its baby brother my 908S.

    2 things I would change. Rear sight to A 3 dot style.
    front sight Anything is better then the stainless sight.
    Im hoping fiber optic in front.
    grips..........All I see for rubber are the pachmyer.
    I was wondering if they have better floorplates for the magazine. Maybe a pinky extender?

    Do they still make the backstrap? I forget who made it.

    Does it take the same grips as a different model smith..459?PICS

    I figured out the front sight cannot be replaced.

    The ones from Hogue are very nice. I ordered these ones from them off the net.
