    Mistake on the S&W website?

    I've noticed on the Smith and Wesson website when you select "Pistols" under "Choose An Item", the 4513TSW, 4563TSW, and 4566TSW are not shown or listed in any of the 4 groups (M&P, 1911, Metal Frame, and Polymer Frame). However, they are listed if you select them by model number or caliber. Seems a little puzzling to me? Is this just a website glitch or are these "special models"? By the way, these 3 models seem to be very highly thought of on the Handgun Review website. Anyone here own any of these models? What do you think of them?
    I know that's a lot of questions but I've been out of the handgun hobby for awhile and just recently returned and I'm trying to make some purchase decisions. Thanks for your help.

    I'm beginning to wonder about gun manf. websites. I don't think they keep up with what they are actually selling, (the left hand knowing 'bout what the right hand is doing thing). Para Ordnance does not show a particular model on their website or in their 2006 catalog, but they have the pistol at a local gunstore (PXC 1445E); Commander style, hi-cap(full length grip), single action, green, 1911. As you say, there are discrepancies in the S&W website and I have found some on the Springfield site. What gives?

    Thumbs down IT

    The IT group often does websites, either internal IT groups or outsourced.

    If anything IT does is worth a hoot and works even partially or sometimes - it is a miracle.

    Also, many gun companies don't seem to put a big priority on websites. God, look at how terrible the site for Glock is...

    IT geeks are GIGO people. (Garbage In= Garbage Out) Apparently, the company isn't QC'ing their websites and feeding back to the IT Geeks. Other times, the IT people are under a deadline and can miss stuff. Again, SOMEONE from corporate should be checking the updates thoroughly. I've often encountered someone who says, "build me a website". I ask, what do you want on it?? I get, "I dunno, just make it look pretty". After several go rounds, it gets done, but there are always errors.
