This Smith and Wesson .22 caliber snub-nosed revolver is a real find. Not a common revolver in this day of more popular semi-autos, it is under 12 oz, fully loaded, and is smooth and easily controlled in the double-action, concealed-hammer lay-out. Front sight is a bright white dot of good size, and the rear sight is the standard U-shape, machined out of the top rail. Barrel liner is stainless, the trigger is steel, and remainder of the weapon is black, anodized aluminum alloy. Standard rubber boot grips offer excellent purchase on the weapon, with good felt recoil comfort. Gun is expensive at more than $550.00, but I feel it is lighter and more comfortable than the Ruger LCR. Gun could easily serve as a concealed carry piece for any shooter averse to a more powerful, hard-to-handle weapon in larger caliber.

I thought the 14 ounce 642 was light...this little gun at 11 ounces empty feels almost too light to be real! It does use an alloy cylinder and alloy barrel shroud, with steel barrel "liner" just like S&W's larger frames. Overall it has the expected S&W matte Anodized with crisp, clear laser markings. I really like the little scallop-groove down the back strap, leading to a small lanyard pin. I guess considering how light this thing is, some might choose to carry it around their neck! It also sports the same scallop around the trigger guard...I guess to save every gram of weight. This is probably an ideal choice for women and others who are recoil sensitive, and/or not interested learning all the ins and outs of semiautomatic pistols. Just insert 8 rounds of your favorite brand, close the cylinder and its ready to go when you need it. The revolver functions perfectly with various brands including Blazer 40 grain LRN, Aguila 60 grain SSS which is a favorite due to its terminal performance from short barrels. It also handled the hotter Aguila 40 grain Expediter, and the 30 grain Supermaximum which is on par with CCI Stingers. Though somewhat expensive for a .22LR, considering it's purpose and clear design toward fulfilling that purpose I call it a success.

Found this weapon to be a beautiful and accurate revolver. Had an issue with cheaper .22lr ammo (36 grain) not easy to eject from cylinder. once I went to 40 grain standard velocity, the issue went away. This is a great piece!
