As always, Bud's service is excellent. Unfortunately I did not read the online reviews for revolvers coming out of the S&W Performance Center prior to making my purchase. The performance center 642, which boasts a tuned trigger and action, locks up with the trigger in the rear position and does not properly reset on a regular basis during dry firing. I have not and will not fire it until it comes back from S&W for warranty work. This all happened on Day 1 of receiving the revolver. I will never part with my classic S&W revolvers because I now know they can never be replaced with something new.

Nice looking gun. Unfortunatelt for me my wifes hand was meant for it.UGH

The perfect pocket pistol. The PC model has a light, crisp trigger pull. Lighter than my wifes regular 642. The grips are rubber, and the inlay is a little darker and not as red as in the picture. There is no internal key lock on the model I purchased. It's beautiful

I've found it to be a very pleasant firearm to own. The parts are well polished and it's fun to shoot by J-frame standards. The boot grips packaged with the gun are well made, although i ended up opting for a set of larger hogue grips. Buds was a pleasure to buy through and expediently shipped my firearm to my ffl. I look forward to future gun purchases through them.

Buy it. Perfect weight, perfect size, perfect trigger. Summer self defense perfection. Sometimes a man needs to get the best and it is hard to carry anything else. Bud’s is the best.

One of the first guns I ever bought. Fits right into your pocket and is easy to carry. Little snapper though. Shouldn't be an issue to a typical gun person. Bids was fast and simple as always.

Who doesn't like a good revolver? This gun is beautiful and feels good in the hand.

This is a great revolver with a smooth surprisingly light trigger. Very light and easy to carry concealed. 38 special in a revolver like this is a bit snappy though. Fit and finish are perfect.

First, I want to thank BUDS for another flawless transaction and fast delivery to my FFL!
This is this first revolver I’ve bought in probably 40 years but had to have one! This S&W is absolutely beautiful! Very easy to handle and shoot!
Even with +P AMMO it’s very manageable, I thought the recoil would be worse, but it’s not. I use this in a STICKY HOLSTER in my jeans pocket and it fits perfectly. I also have a small OWB Kydex holster that conceals under my shirt very well. This will be a gun I never sell. I’ve owned many guns over my 74 years since my ARMY days and I keep the guns that I really like to shoot and for defensive purposes, sold the others.
This is a great defensive gun for anybody, but particularly for the ladies! Of course the S&W QUALITY is unmatched, beautiful finish with a beautiful wood insert in the grip for a nice touch. This is the PERFORMANCE model so the trigger is awesome and very smooth, fires first time, every time!
Buy it, you’ll really like it!
