S&W M638 5RD 38SP +P 1.87"
by Phil B Date Added: Saturday 22 November, 2008
The Bodyguard is a beautiful little gun! This gun has good barrel-cylinder alignment and a smooth action, although it needs a spring kit to lighten the action. It feels great in the hand and the grip is very comfortable. I like the capability of single and double action shooting, so I really like the flat hammer on the 638. It may not be as "pretty" as the 642, but if you want to cock the hammer, you can! The only real complaint I have with the gun is the larger barrel/cylinder gap on the gun. Smith allows too much tolerance here. My gun has an .008 gap, and I prefer .003-.004. Smith could make these tolerances tighter, and they should!!! This is true for all of their revolvers, not just the 638. Overall, this is a great gun and I highly recommend it!
