S&W 642 Centennial Airweight Revolver .38 Special 1.875in 5rd
[163810]
$404.00
by Brent W Date Added: Friday 17 August, 2012
First revolver purchase, and am very happy with it. Fit and finish is top notch with the exception of the trigger which looked like it was blackened (from a heat source?) but most of it cleaned off. Mechanically the gun was perfect with absolutely no problems after feeding 200 rounds through it including half a box of +P Hornady Critical Defense. Shooting was remarkably comfortable given the light weight of the revolver and relatively small grip surface (my pinky finger hangs off). Would not recommend ever trying to reliably hit anything beyond 10-20 yards. but this is expected due to the short barrel and isn't a criticism of the gun itself.

I bought this as a backup gun or as a primary to be pocket/ankle carried with dress clothes. For that role it is perfect and would recommend some Tuff Quickstrips to allow faster reloading without carrying an egg shaped speed reloader. Third purchase from Buds with only a minor issue ( ordered Sunday night but it did not ship until Tuesday - got it Thursday though so not a complete problem). Five stars to S&W.

Rating: 5 of 5 Stars! [5 of 5 Stars!]
