Very nice gun, as are all S&W Revolvers. The trigger comes in at 12lbs, which is a bit heavy when you think about it. The even with the heavy trigger, the action is smooth enough that you can still pop off all 5 rounds on target quickly. If you do your part, it's more accurate then it really needs to be.

If you are carrying this, you may want to consider either wearing an under shirt or switching out the grip (I got a Hogue G10 grip). The factory rubber grip is a little sticky up against skin.

Thanks Buds outstanding service received S&W 642 in two days from ordering. Firearm in excellent condition. Cleaned an fired day I received. Will need apex trigger job. Tested trigger was 15 lb. pull. Will try to get 8 lb. pull in double action, with new springs an smoothing out an oiling. Great job Buds your the best. Will be back.

I was looking for a simple and reliable handgun for home defense, and that I would not have a concern about passing down to my children when the time came. This version of the S&W642 was an easy choice, and it has not disappointed. I realize that different guns of the same model may have individual quality control issues, my experience with three of the no-lock S&W 642s is different than the previous reviewer. All of the guns have a fairly smooth trigger pull, although they are a bit heavier than some of the other S&W revolvers I have used. I have been able to keep fairly good groups with the guns out to 15 yards, and much more than adequate for the intended purpose. The only two things I may change on the guns are to install the apex j-frame trigger kit ( which lightens trigger pull), and put on a larger set of rubber grips. The light weight of the gun would be definite plus for concealed carry during the summer, but maybe not as controllable if shooting +P or +P+ ammunition. This is not a 50 yard target gun by any means, but an excellent choice for it's intended use for short range personal protection. Would definitely make this purchase again.
