What can you say about a S&W 38 special Air Weight that hasn’t already been said a million times before. Great quality, proven caliber, economical to buy and shoot, not to mention dependable. A strong aftermarket support to accessorize for comfort and performance. One of S&W best sellers for many years running.

I purchased the S&W M442 as a reliable, easily concealable \"pocket\" gun. I have had the pistol for about 6 months but have only fired about 100 rounds thus far. The last trip to the range i noticed that several times i would squeeze the trigger, the cylinder would advance, yet the pistol would not fire. Upon inspection of the cartridges, I noticed there was no evidence of the firing pin striking the primer on the misfired rounds. There was also a noticeable difference with the trigger pull when this would happen, much less resistance than when the pistol operated properly. This issue happened 4 times while shooting about 50 rounds. I will be contacting S&W about the issue. I don\'t know if this is a systemic problem with this model, so if you are considering buying this model as a self defense firearm you may want to research other models or other brands. This pistol is designed as a personal defense / back up firearm so there should never be any thought that it won\'t operate when your safety is on the line.

Needed a pocket pistol and wanted the 442. Great wheel gun, shoots great for a snub A 5 shot with two extra speed loaders and I feel well protected when I'm in dress pants or clothes that do not conceal the S&W M&P 45C. This gun got my daughter-in-law shooting, a real bonus, right!!

Went with the 442 to use as my backup cc. Bud's shipped it the day after I placed my order, and it arrived two days later! Gun came in perfect, brand new condition. As far as the gun itself, i absolutely love it. Accurate, and a blast to shoot. I put some Houge grips on it as I have big hands.Even before the grips however, the fit wasn't too bad. If you're looking for a 5 shot revolver for concealed carry, I really recommend the S&W 442. Thanks Bud's!

A great backup gun. Disappears on a ankle or pocket. A reliable revolver that’s time tested and proven.

A great little gun. Went straight to the range and shot 50 FMJ rounds and 15 +P defense rounds and it worked great. Accurate, comfortable to shoot, although not planning to use it for my fun/target gun. Going right into my ankle holster. Happy to have made this choice.

Very comfortable revolver, fits very nicely in the hand. So light you can wear it all day and forget you have it. As a revolver, it's a little bulky for concealed carry in a pants pocket, but works great thrown in the pocket of a jacket or the Smart Carry which I sometimes use. Very reliable. Have not had any of the problems some mention in regard to the internal lock safety. I haven't ever used it, so maybe that's why mine operates without any issues.

Haven't shot it yet but accepted transfer feels and looks like a quality piece of machinery. I love revolvers.

    This has the Internal Lock. The lower price is simply because it has more "in stock" units than the other pistol. Buds uses an automatic inventory price update engine that runs every 20mins. Prices are tied directly to stock levels and will change as stock numbers change. As inventory numbers go down, prices go up and vice-versa. Usually when popular items get low in stock.
