I never could like the Model 59, ergonomics just didn’t work for me. Loved the model 39 though.

The 459 has vastly improved ergonomics, trigger…well…everything. It’s a whole lot better than the 59 and not a bad shooter at all. The 3rd Gen S&W’s are brute strong, and very reliable. But finding magazines can sometimes be a challenge depending on which model you’re looking at.
Interestingly enough 39 magazines would not work in a 639 I owned for a short period, and 639 mags were impossible to find at the time. I rather liked the 59, never had a 659, but be sure to check magazine compatibility and availability.
