My only issue is the grips are so small and there is no good way to fire it without hurting your hand. \\r\\n\\r\\n

I just got back from my first range trip with this Performance Center Model 642. I put just over 40 rounds through the revolver. The ammo was a mix of Winchester 'White Box' FMJ and some Federal +P JHP's. There were no failures of any kind. At 7 Yards, the revolver seems to hit about 3 to 4 inches to the right. This is probably my fault. I am left-handed and tend to sometimes pull shots to the right. I probably just need some more 'trigger time' with this new gun.

Speaking of triggers, the one on my revolver is nice. It is smooth and breaks at about 9 1/4 lbs. That is a nice double-action trigger pull for a little J-Frame. Clearly, the PC guys worked on the trigger. Overall quality of the gun is excellent. I checked the cylinder gap. A 0.0025 gauge would easily enter but a 0.003 gauge would not. Clearly, my new revolver has a tight cylinder gap and the gap seems uniform on both sides of the cylinder.

This is clearly a high-quality little revolver. If you are in the market for a little J-Frame 38 Special revolver, say for concealed carry, then I can recommend this model.

Bought this at the suggestion from a friend. I am not usually one to like smaller framed revolvers.. this one is no different..I do not like it... I LOVE It! Even though it's small it fits nicely in my hand, I fired about 50 +P loads through it with zero issues, it is extremely concealable in a front pocket of jeans or dress pants... I didn't say slacks, because I hate that word.
SW did a fabulous job on this weapon.
As per usual, Buds delivered as expected... there is NEVER an issue with their products or shipping

Very nice j frame revolver. The wood/rubber grips are very comfortable. At the range the trigger job makes shooting nice and smooth. Well worth paying extra for that. Polished parts, especially the trigger are a nice touch. My only complaint would be a faint outline of maybe agunrest on the right side. Not really noticeable though. Very happy with my purchase. Shoots well!

Update to my previous review. I got the gun back from S&W. the problem diagnosed was a defective sear. Are you kidding me ? On a Performance Center Revolver ! The trigger was still very rough with a pull of approximately 8-10 pounds. So I was still very disappointed with this gun. My gunsmith fixed that with an Action Job. My advice....Save yourself some $$ and buy the regular 642 (163810). Then have your gunsmith perform an Action Job on it and add a set of Crimson Trace LG-305 laser grips which you can find on sale for less than $200. Or buy the gun with the grips installed (150972) and then have your gunsmith work on it. Just some options to consider.

Excellent choice I made for this revolver - S&W 642 - Performance Center - I'm an older retired shooter coming back to the hobby after relocating from the West Coast to now in Texas.. I was looking for a small J frame, carry/conceal purchase made with quality - this little 38 packs a serious punch ( has some recoil due to the small lite frame and short barrel ) however, After shooting several boxes of rounds, I found this piece to be very accurate even though it only boast a little 1.87 " barrel - I was very pleased with this purchase and also the service levels and follow thru I received from " Buds " ... Thanx Guys... Repeat customer and looking forward to more.

This is a very nice S&W revolver. First the Good...It is a Performance Center pistol. Period. Fit and finish are Excellent. Craftsmanship is Excellent. The rubber grip and wood inserts are very nice, but the overall grip is very short. The trigger pull is very heavy, but that is normal and can be remedied by any competent gunsmith. The polished cylinder flutes and polished trigger and side plate screws add a nice touch to the pistol, but add nothing to it\'s functionality. Now the Bad...It is supposed to have a Performance Center tuned action, however the only action that I experienced was random cylinder trigger lock up during test firing with snap caps. As of this review, it has been returned to S&W under their warranty for testing and repair. This is a Five Star pistol, but at this time I can only give it 2 Stars due to the problems described in this review.

Nicest snubby I have ever owned. The trigger job done at S&W was well worth the extra money. It is and will be my constant carry gun. With a "sticky holster" for front pocket and one speed loader of Critical Defense, I may get rid of all my semi-autos...........
