S&W M642 5RD 38SP +P 1.87" No Internal Lock
by Joseph H Date Added: Friday 09 September, 2011
Well, this is the first revolver I've purchased or owned in quite a long time and man is it a good one. It is super light, easy to carry, and I was amazed at how accurate it is. With a deliberate and patient pull at 7 yards, it was easy to keep shots in the X ring on a B27 target. With rapid fire you could still keep them in the 8 and 9 rings. I was able to hit 8" steel plates at 25 yards pretty regularly, again with a slower and deliberate pull. The trigger pull on my particular 642 was really good. Smooth and even, with a crisp let off. It prefers 130 grain for practice over 158, and it loves CCI/Speer Gold Dot 135 grain +P. I really couldn't tell much of a difference with the CCI +P over the 158 grain ammo. Little snappier, but not bad by any means. If you are in the market for a light and excellent revolver, for the price, this S&W 642 will be hard to beat for the price.
