Smith & Wesson 442 .38 Spl+P 1-7/8" Black 
by Eric S
Date Added: Wednesday 02 March, 2011
Bud's service was great as always and I had no problem picking this snubby up from my FFL. The first shots fired were .38 reloads (not +P) at 50yds (yes, 50) as I could not get to my pistol range due to the snow and weather. Shooting off-hand at a steel plate approx 14x16in, I was in fact able to connect. Don't have any doubts on the accuracy of these little guys. My only gripe would be that the stock trigger is quite a bear, especially on initial take up. Replacing the factory springs with some Wilson Combat trigger kit springs did wonders, even with very slight polishing on the rebound slide. The other interesting thing was the amount of torque on the screws of the side plate. Even with the proper gunsmithing screwdrivers I ended up messing up 2 of the 3 heads. I called S&W to explain what had happened and asked why the were so torqued. The rep insisted that there was no reason to ever open the side plate other than to modify the internals (which is what I had told him I had done to begin with). When I asked about purchasing some new screws, he said it would be no problem to send me out some new ones free of charge. There's also a plethora of holsters and styles to choose from so do your homework and find what works best for you.
