It was an awesome experience buy from buds. I saved about $100 buying from them and they delivered on time. Everything was as smooth as silk. It was so easy my wife is now worried about our bank account!! Lol.....

Awesome little revolver. Good fit and finish. Sometimes the grip stops a shell from ejecting completely so practice opening it all the way before hitting the ejection rod. Shoots straight. Use a lighter bullet under 145 grains.

I recieved this S&W 38 special in a few days and it was in new condition and I am very pleased with it. I have done business with Bud\\\'s Gun Shop for a while now and they have great selection of guns at really good prices. I would recommend Bud\\\'s to anyone looking for a good deal and good service. Look forward to doing business with them again.

Bud\\\\\\\'s service and speed of delivery was as always exceptional. Great people to do business with. The 638 S & W has a terrible trigger, heavy and gritty. Previous S & W\\\\\\\'s and Taurus\\\\\\\' revolvers I have owned are much better. 125 grain, 185 grain and 160 grain all shoot 8\\\\\\\" high at 15 yards. I bought this primarily to shoot shot snake loads and may keep the gun for that purpose. As a defensive gun, I feel it is useless.

This is the ultimate ankle BUG. I have three of them, stuffed with Federal HST. Need I say more?

Great little snub revolver. I bought it for close (7yds. Or less) Back gun. This is a defense gun. I bought a Wilson spring kit for it, but not installed it yet, as it shot very good as it came.\r\nI like and will keep it. Greatly prefer the ability to shoot it double or single action. I had a m- 642 D/A only. Never again.

I've wanted this Model 638 for a few years, but didn't want to spend the price. It's not a revolver that is made to spend all day shooting at the range. When the price met what I wanted to spend, I ordered it here. Bud's had it to my FFL in about a week, which is great by me. This is the first J-frame Smith I've owned, though I've shot the 638 at my local range. Snappy little revolver, and mine at least is beautifully finished. I buy remanufactured .38 ammo for a couple of other pistols and as expect, it works flawlessly in this little gun. I haven't tried +P and don't intend to, I'll use my .357 for that if desired. The fixed front sight on mine is well centered and again, this isn't necessarily the firearm for long range shooting. I wanted the 638 because I wanted the shrouded hammer. True, it's interesting looking but I got used to that very quickly. I don't want a double-only revolver, period. This is a great, and a smart, compromise--as it has been since it was introduced in 1955, the year I was born. The shrouded hammer takes a fairly strong pull without much finger traction, but that's a good thing. The single action trigger is indeed a hair trigger, but is smooth and predictable. Delighted with my purchase, and with Bud's.

    If I recall correctly Tim, that is an allen screw, that takes an allen, or hex, wrench. If you look closely it would resemble a ';honeycomb' shape inside the screw hole. Just make sure you have the correct size that fits snugly into the head of the screw to avoid stripping out the shoulders on the inside of the screw head. Wallie World has some Stanley Allen wrench sets that I have bought to carry in my range bag - they're inexpensive and of fairly good quality, fold up compactly and are 'attached' to the handle so they're easy to keep up with - fold up and close sort f like a picket knife. I think that would solve your situation. . If the screw is not a hex/allen head screw then it would be a torx type - resembles a star inside the screw head. Photo of the two different types here - hex/allen screw on top. Again, Wally World has torx wrench sets as well Photo here: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/6/65/Torx-hex-contact-angles-forces.svg/220px-Torx-hex-contact-angles-forces.svg.png
