Very nice, easy delivery, great price. Gun shoots great, boot grips nicer than expected. Action okay out of box I guess, polished internals and added Wolff reduced power hammer spring - now great. Front blade needs white paint or something. Good accuracy, 9 and 10 rings all day out to 10 yds so far shooting Winchester wad cutters, longer range soon to follow. I like the finish, contrasts nicely with the cylinder. Great weight for carry. It's a Smith J Frame, what can you really say? Recommend.

I like this little handgun. It does exactly what I wanted it to do. It is light, snag free, easy to conceal. Remember, shooting a featherweight, short-barrel revolver requires a significant about of practice to attain proficiency. Buy this firearm if you are willing to invest in ammunition and range time. I also suggest a trigger job by a competent, licensed, gunsmith. Properly stoning the appropriate hammer and trigger services will improve accuracy. The gun is well made and absolutely reliable: pull the trigger, it goes \"bang\", period. Bonus: with the 442, you don\'t have to practice the semi-auto jam / stovepipe / failure to eject / failure to feed drills; you don\'t need to remember to release the safety when you are under the extreme stress of an \"encounter\", and you can feed it any ammo you want from low-power wadcutters, to Plus-P personal defense rounds. (I would give it a 5 star rating if S&W would polish those hammer/trigger surfaces before it leaves the factory.)

Perfect BUG (back -up-gun)! If your gun must absolutely, positively fire and continue to do so until empty, then this gun is for you. 97.99% reliable, (Failure to Feed, Failure to Fire and Failure to Eject does not apply here). You can even fire this gun while still inside your jacket pocket, no external hammer. Yes, it does shoot double action only. This gun is made for close quarter self defense, shooting within 5 feet. As such, you will not have time to cock the hammer before shooting anyway. Yes, the trigger can initially be a little hard to pull. Solution...... pull the trigger 50 times with each hand every day for 10 days, you should be doing that anyway. After 1000 dry fires, the trigger should feel fine. This is the \"Pro\" model, it has a stainless steel cylinder and it is cut for moon clips. If moon clips are not for you, dont use them. Moon clips are not required.

This is my second purchase from Bud’s. The transaction, as always, was flawless. I can definitely state that I will purchase from them again, and again, and again. Regarding the S&W-442, awesome little revolver. Small enough in size to conceal it just about anywhere on your body; I am doing ankle-carry. This revolver is so light that I honestly forget I am carrying it at all. Keep in mind that this is a CQB firearm, it is not made to shoot the bad guy who is a block away. This revolver is for that close quarters shootout in defense of your family, your property, and/or yourself. By the way, this is my second S&W, my other pistol is an M&P 9c that I purchased through Bud’s as well.

The Mdl 442 is an excellent small revolver. This model allows use of five-round moon clips, which provide a faster manner of reloading but require a little testing and perfecting of the clip/bullet combination to ensure proper function. Moon clips frankly work better with the shorter .45 ACP rounds in the full-size Mdl 625 than they do in the smallish Mdl 442 -- based on size, dynamics, and the greater strength of the clips that hold the .45 rounds compared to the thinner clips that hold the .38 Special rounds. The 442 with moon clips is a viable combination, though; it just requires a little more attention. To be honest, every round you carry for self-protection, whether in a set of five attached to a moon clip, or carried separately, should be tested in your cylinder to make sure it fits properly! If you don't want or like moonclips, buy the regular Mdl 442 or the Mdl 642 and enjoy the savings (both are available with the no-lock feature). Overall, though, this is a wonderful revolver, and I will be using it with a moon clip. The Bud's price and service was excellent and increased my enjoyment of this purchase.
