Saw the 6590 at my local Turner's and am very interested in picking it up. Can I use 5906 accessories like sights and magazines for it? Also, how difficult would it be to find custom grips for the 6590?

I had never heard of the S&W 6590 - so I did a quick google search. According to one reference, "Standard Catalog of Smith & Wesson" By Jim Supica & Richard Nahas, the 6590 is considered "Scarce", and they believe fewer than 900 were made. If that's true, I might think twice before changing out parts. Just my 2 cents...
