When the first all-steel small frame (J) revolver was introduced in 1950, it became an instant success. Originally named the Chiefs Special by the International Association of Chiefs of Police, it has become the first choice for those who insist on an all steel, small frame revolver with greater recoil control and proven performance.

This is my 24/7 carry pistol, my bedside gun and I always put a few rounds through my bodyguard everytime I visit the range. After I shot my father’s S&W 649, an older model 38 special Kentucky State Trooper service revolver, I have always liked the 649. The revolver feels great in the hands, nicely balanced and the shrouded hammer prevents snagging issues when drawing from a pocket. Also the shrouded hammer design allows the shooter to fire in single action (SA) mode should greater accuracy be required vs. “hammer-less” DA only snub-nose revolvers. Once S&W produced a 649 that could deliver the awesome .357 magnum round I knew this was my 24/7 carry gun.

Fit and Finish: Comes with a brushed stainless finish, no sign of wear after 6 months of moderate carry and range use
Trigger: There is nothing like a Smith and Wesson Revolver trigger, it is smooth all the way through double action operation and pulling the single action trigger “feels like you are breaking a rod of glass”. This Smith's trigger has no drag, pre-travel or excessive over-travel. Trigger reset for single action is A+.
Frame: Sturdy all stainless steel J-frame
Accuracy, while standing in SA: Using the fixed sights, I am shooting 2-3” groups at 10 yards and at 25 yards I can hit a silhouette everytime. With the CTC lasergrips I can shoot 1” groups (SA) at 10 yards.
Grips: original Wilson Combat grips fit my hand perfectly. Soft and smooth rubber feel.
Reliability: I have put around 100 rounds of Winchester 38 spl and CCI Blazer .357 magnum ammo without a single problem.
Balance: The weight distribution of this gun is very balanced, points and aims naturally
Action: Cycles very smoothly, cylinder removal and spent casing ejection is easy

Misc comments: The steel frame of the 649 has just enough weight so that shooting a box of hot .357 rounds is no chore, while carry via a pocket holster is routine. Additionally, shooting 38 spl and 38 spl +P rounds out of the 649 allows for comfortable and affordable practice.
If I were ever faced with a situation where my only option was self-defense, I would trust none other than the knock-down power of the .357 Magnum round chambered in a reliable all-steel framed ‘point and shoot’ revolver; accordingly, my home defense gun is a S&W 686P 7-Shot .357.

I have improved my stock 649 with: Testors Fluorescent Model Paint over Boyd’s White Primer to repaint front sight blade, CTC LG-305 extended laser grips, Uncle Mikes pocket holster (size 3), 38spl aZoom snap caps for trigger-pull practice and Remington Golden Saber 125 Grain for Self-Defense Rounds (very accurate and manageable recoil for effective follow-up shots)

Last: NO regrets on buying this great Pistol from Budsguns, Thanks guys

Nice 2" revolver in .357, a little more weight than a .38 but not enough to not move up to a magnum round. The shrouded hammer makes this a good CCW or pocket gun with less snag potential and is a great size for the summer months. With 5 rounds and the option to carry 1 or 2 speed loaders any citizen should feel well equiped to handle situations. For people that are recoil sensative the 649 is a nice option to have an all steel frame and the ability to load .38 rounds to reduce felt recoil. I feel this gun is a good compromise between a smaller .38 and a larger caliber pistol and would also make a good BUG (back up gun).
